Instance Method

sizeThatFits:

Asks the view to calculate and return the size that best fits the specified size.

Declaration

- (CGSize)sizeThatFits:(CGSize)size;

Parameters

size

The size for which the view should calculate its best-fitting size.

Return Value

A new size that fits the receiver’s subviews.

Discussion

The default implementation of this method returns the existing size of the view. Subclasses can override this method to return a custom value based on the desired layout of any subviews. For example, a UISwitch object returns a fixed size value that represents the standard size of a switch view, and a UIImageView object returns the size of the image it is currently displaying.

This method does not resize the receiver.
