Type Method

systemFont(ofSize:weight:)

Returns the font object used for standard interface items in the specified size and weight.

Declaration

class func systemFont(ofSize fontSize: CGFloat, weight: UIFont.Weight) -> UIFont

Parameters

fontSize

The size (in points) to which the font is scaled. This value must be greater than 0.0.

weight

The weight of the font, specified as a font weight constant. For a list of possible values, see "Font Weights” in UIFontDescriptor. Avoid passing an arbitrary floating-point number for weight, because a font might not include a variant for every weight.

Return Value

A font object of the specified size and weight.

Discussion

Instead of using this method to get a font, it’s often more appropriate to use preferredFont(forTextStyle:) because that method respects the user’s selected content size category.
