Instance Method

addSubview(_:)

Adds a view to the end of the receiver’s list of subviews.

Declaration

func addSubview(_ view: UIView)

Parameters

view

The view to be added. After being added, this view appears on top of any other subviews.

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.
