Instance Property


A Boolean value indicating whether the font size should be reduced in order to fit the text string into the text field’s bounding rectangle.


@property(nonatomic) BOOL adjustsFontSizeToFitWidth;


Normally, the text field’s content is drawn with the font you specify in the font property. If this property is set to YES, however, and the contents in the text property exceed the text field’s bounding rectangle, the receiver starts reducing the font size until the string fits or the minimum font size is reached. The text is shrunk along the baseline.

The default value for this property is NO. If you change it to YES, you should also set an appropriate minimum font size by modifying the minimumFontSize property.
