Chapter 5. Creating Custom Views in Swift

User interfaces can be built by combining standard views and view controllers through Interface Builder, Storyboard Editor, or with custom code. However, it will eventually become necessary to break apart a user interface into smaller, reusable, and easier to test segments. These are known as custom views.

This chapter will present the following topics:

  • Customizing table views

  • Building and laying out custom view subclasses

  • Drawing graphical views with drawRect

  • Creating layered graphics with animation
