Course description
  • AutoLayout
  • 6 days
  • Using Constraint-Based Design
  • Also, you will take a deep dive and learn about some of the most commonly misunderstood properties affecting layout like distribution, alignment, content hugging, and compression resistance.
  • Then, you will put all of this knowledge to use and start creating functional interfaces with multiple stack views and UI elements. In fact, you will recreate an interface from a very well known app. And, by the end of this course, you will be ready to create beautiful interfaces from scratch.
  • Welcome to AutoLayout!
  • Using AutoLayout
  • View Properties
  • StackViews 101
  • Positioning StackViews
  • Horizontal Layouts
  • Vertical Layouts
  • Learn all the possible ways of laying out a view.
  • Determine how views should adapt when the available screen size changes.
  • Explore AutoLayout and constraints — the premiere tools for building adaptive views.
  • Survey various methods for implementing AutoLayout.
  • Use stack views to intuitively construct interfaces without getting muddled in the details.
  • Investigate the properties which control how elements are sized using AutoLayout.
  • Examine the nuances of compression resistance and content hugging.
  • Build and tweak layouts while exploring all the properties of stack views.
  • Modify axes, spacing, alignments, and distributions to arrange contained subviews.
  • Generate and configure constraints using Interface Builder and storyboards.
  • Analyze the interplay between stack views and different UI elements and devices.
  • Troubleshoot common problems affecting horizontal stack views and elements with similar view properties.
  • Compose interfaces that embed stack views within stack views.
  • Use stack views to experiment with vertical layouts.
  • Recreate an interface from a very well known app!
  • You will need to be familiar with UIKit and Storyboards.
  • See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
  • For many developers, AutoLayout can be a curse: a complex system with unpredictable behavior that you can’t run away from.
  • This course will remove the veil of mystery that shrouds AutoLayout.
  • You will be able to create any UI for any device.
  • Even better, you will actually understand what’s going on!
