Instance Property

text

The text displayed by the text view.

Declaration

@property(nonatomic, copy) NSString *text;

Discussion

In iOS 6 and later, assigning a new value to this property also replaces the value of the attributedText property with the same text, albeit without any inherent style attributes. Instead the text view styles the new string using the font, textColor, and other style-related properties of the class.
