Instance Property


The distance in points between the adjacent edges of the stack view’s arranged views.


var spacing: CGFloat { get set }

It represents the minimum spacing for the UIStackView.Distribution.equalSpacing and UIStackView.Distribution.equalCentering distributions. Use negative values to allow overlap. The default value is 0.0.
