Instance Property


The current styled text that is displayed by the label.


@NSCopying var attributedText: NSAttributedString? { get set }


This property is nil by default.

Assigning a new value to this property also replaces the value of the text property with the same string data, although without any formatting information. In addition, assigning a new a value updates the values in the font, textColor, and other style-related properties so that they reflect the style information starting at location 0 in the attributed string.

To turn on auto-kerning on the label, set kern of the string to null.
