Cap Height Alignment for iOS Auto Layout

Mike Woods  Dec 30, 2016

Many times graphic designs include the need to align text vertically at cap height (the top of the capitals) and baseline. For example, someone displaying a list of news articles might want to align the cap height of each article title and the baseline of the associated description with the thumbnail image (as shown in the figure below). iOS Auto Layout already supports baseline alignment for vertical (as well as horizontal) layout, but there is no built-in mechanism to deal with cap height.

Simple JSON parsing with SWIFT3

Mike Woods  Dec 8, 2016

Many mobile applications rely on JSON-based web services for their data. For iOS, there has long been ample JSON support through third-party libraries and, since iOS 5, NSJSONSerialization. The typical output of such is a dictionary containing other dictionaries, arrays, numbers and strings, which works very nicely for Objective-C but can present some problems for the strongly typed Swift. However, using Swift’s powerful support for enumerations, this common task can be just as straightforward without compromising good type checking.

How to Move Activity Content and Action Bar When Closing and Opening a Navigation Drawer

Mike Woods  Jan 15, 2015

Like me, you’ve probably searched online for a navigation drawer solution that doesn’t require a third-party library. When developing apps, we’re always wary about adding extra dependencies, and in this case, the libraries available don’t even mimic all navigation drawer features.

Scrolling Made Easy With Auto Layout

Mike Woods  Dec 12, 2014

It’s a common problem. You have a screen in your iOS app that looks great on an iPhone 6 Plus and then QA opens a bug because the content is off the bottom of the screen on an iPhone 6. Or perhaps someone hands you new copy for the About text, and it’s longer than the space available. Whatever the reason, you have a screen and now you need to make it scrollable. If only there was a way of doing this without having to disrupt existing code. Well, with Auto Layout, there is.
