Instance Property

textAlignment

The technique to use for aligning the text.

Declaration

@property(nonatomic) NSTextAlignment textAlignment;

Discussion

This property applies to the both the main text string and the placeholder string. The default value of this property is NSLeftTextAlignment.

If you are using styled text, assigning a new value to this property causes the text alignment to be applied to the entire string in the attributedText property. If you want to apply the alignment to only a portion of the text, create a new attributed string with the desired style information and associate it with the text field.
