Instance Method


Returns the preferred size of the layer in the coordinate space of its superlayer.


func preferredFrameSize() -> CGSize

Return Value

The layer’s preferred frame size.


In macOS, the default implementation of this method calls the preferredSize(of:) method of its layout manager—that is, the object in its layoutManager property. If that object does not exist or does not implement that method, this method returns the size of the layer’s current bounds rectangle mapped into the coordinate space of its superlayer.
