Instance Property


The object responsible for laying out the layer’s sublayers.


var layoutManager: CALayoutManager? { get set }


The object you assign to this property must nominally implement the CALayoutManager Informal Protocol informal protocol. If the layer’s delegate does not handle layout updates, the object assigned to this property is given a chance to update the layout of the layer’s sublayers.

In macOS, assign an instance of the CAConstraintLayoutManager class to this property if your layer uses layer-based constraints to handle layout changes.

The default value of this property is nil.
