Instance Method

insertSubview(_:aboveSubview:)

Inserts a view above another view in the view hierarchy.

Declaration

func insertSubview(_ view: UIView, aboveSubview siblingSubview: UIView)

Parameters

view

The view to insert. It’s removed from its superview if it’s not a sibling of siblingSubview.

siblingSubview

The sibling view that will be behind the inserted view.

Discussion

This method establishes a strong reference to view and sets its next responder to the receiver, which is its new superview.

Views can have only one superview. If view already has a superview and that view is not the receiver, this method removes the previous superview before making the receiver its new superview.
