Instance Property

minimumInteritemSpacing

The minimum spacing (in points) to use between items in the same row or column.

Declaration

@property CGFloat minimumInteritemSpacing;

Discussion

If the delegate does not implement the collectionView:layout:minimumInteritemSpacingForSectionAtIndex: method, the flow layout object uses the value of this property to set the spacing between items in the same line.

For a vertically scrolling layout, the value represents the minimum spacing between items in the same row. For a horizontally scrolling layout, the value represents the minimum spacing between items in the same column. The layout object uses this spacing only to compute how many items can fit in a single row or column. The actual spacing may be increased after the number of items has been determined, as illustrated in Figure 1.
