Instance Method

addConstraint(_:)

Adds a constraint on the layout of the receiving view or its subviews.

Declaration

func addConstraint(_ constraint: NSLayoutConstraint)

Parameters

constraint

The constraint to be added to the view. The constraint may only reference the view itself or its subviews.

Discussion

The constraint must involve only views that are within scope of the receiving view. Specifically, any views involved must be either the receiving view itself, or a subview of the receiving view. Constraints that are added to a view are said to be held by that view. The coordinate system used when evaluating the constraint is the coordinate system of the view that holds the constraint.
