Instance Property

contentEdgeInsets

The inset or outset margins for the rectangle surrounding all of the button’s content.

Declaration

@property(nonatomic) UIEdgeInsets contentEdgeInsets;

Discussion

Use this property to resize and reposition the effective drawing rectangle for the button content. The content comprises the button image and button title. You can specify a different value for each of the four insets (top, left, bottom, right). A positive value shrinks, or insets, that edge—moving it closer to the center of the button. A negative value expands, or outsets, that edge. Use the UIEdgeInsetsMake function to construct a value for this property. The default value is UIEdgeInsetsZero.

The button uses this property to determine intrinsicContentSize and sizeThatFits:.
