Instance Property


The threshold for using tightening as an alternative to truncation.


var tighteningFactorForTruncation: Float { get }


When the line break mode specifies truncation, the text system attempts to tighten inter character spacing as an alternative to truncation, provided that the ratio of the text width to the line fragment width does not exceed 1.0 + the tightening factor is set to this property. Otherwise the text is truncated at a location determined by the line break mode.
