UILabel Notes

  1. By default, UILabel doesn’t wrap around string. However large the size of the label is, it will always display a single line. To get around this, you have to set descriptionLabel.numberOfLines =0;  descriptionLabel.lineBreakMode = UILineBreakModeWordWrap;
  2. To automatically adjust the size of the label relative to the length of the string , follow this post here


This post is particularly good because it doesn’t need you set the points of the new frame. It uses the original starting points of the frame. It works particularly well with the approach we took because you can draw the label in storyboard and just dynamically set the size of the label.
