UITextAttributes UITextAttributes Class


Type used to describe the text attributes to set on some user interface elements.

public class UITextAttributes
type UITextAttributes = class


Typically developers create an instance of this class and fill out the various properties to configure the desired text attributes.

For example, the following code can be used to change the style of the UINavigationBar:

var attrs = new UITextAttributes () {
	Font = UIFont.FromName ("Chalkduster", 20),
	TextColor = UIColor.Red,
	TextShadowColor = UIColor.Black,
	TextShadowOffset = new UIOffset (6, 6)
myNavController.NavigationBar.SetTitleTextAttributes (attrs);

You can use code-completion inside the constructor for UITextAttributes without having to remember the properties that you want to set. The above sample renders like this:

As of iOS5, you can set the text attributes on the following items: UIBarItem, UINavigationBar, UISearchBar and UISegmentedControl.


UITextAttributes() UITextAttributes()

The default constructor does nothing, you must fill at least one property for this to be useful.
