Instance Property


The height of each row (that is, table cell) in the table view.


var rowHeight: CGFloat { get set }


Row height is expressed in points. You may set the row height for cells if the delegate doesn’t implement the tableView(_:heightForRowAt:) method. The default value of rowHeight is automaticDimension. Note that if you create a self-sizing cell in Interface Builder, the default row height is changed to the value set in Interface Builder. To get the expected self-sizing behavior for a cell that you create in Interface Builder, you must explicitly set rowHeight equal to automaticDimension in your code.

There are performance implications to using tableView(_:heightForRowAt:) instead of rowHeight. Every time a table view is displayed, it calls tableView(_:heightForRowAt:) on the delegate for each of its rows, which can result in a significant performance problem with table views having a large number of rows (approximately 1000 or more).
