Lesson 11 - iOS ToDo app in Swift - Custom TableViewCell
In the previous lesson, iOS ToDo app in Swift - Working with the database, we talked about working with the Realm
database in iOS. To learn how to sort data, we're going to sort tasks by their
priority. We'll use custom
TableViewCell which is useful in many
cases since the basic cells often aren't enough. We'll indicate the task
priority by color.
Let's drop a regular
View component on our
PrototypeCell and using constraints, align it
the left, top, and bottom edge. We'll finish the constraints by setting just the
Width to e.g.
Next to this
View, we'll also drop a
display the task text. We'll align the
from the left edge (i.e. from the priority
View), vertically. Now
the constraints are finished.
The main View Controller should look like this now:
Because we're creating a custom
TableViewCell, we'll need a
custom class for it as well. Let's add a new file to the project and don't
forget to choose Cocoa Touch Class, so that we can make the class a
UITableViewCell subclass. We'll name it
ToDoTableViewCell. The generated code looks like this:
