Usage

UIKit

Since LTMorphingLabel is a drop-in replacement, you can use it like any UILabel by setting its text property, yielding the default effect (.scale):

var exampleLabel = LTMorphingLabel()
exampleLabel.text = "This is a test"

UIKitExample1

Alternatively, it can be used interactively:

var exampleLabel = LTMorphingLabel()
exampleLabel.text = "This is a test"
exampleLabel.pause()

// Call .updateProgress(progress: Float) for interactive animation
// Note: In this case, animation will stop at 45% and will not complete
//       unless called later with 100 as the `progress` float value.
exampleLabel.updateProgress(progress: 45.0)

The effect can be changed by setting the morphingEffect property:

var exampleLabel = LTMorphingLabel()
exampleLabel.text = "This is a test"
exampleLabel.morphingEffect = .burn

UIKitExample2

SwiftUI

To use LTMorphingLabel in SwiftUI, simply declare it and set its text, effect, font, and textColor properties:

public var body: some View {
    VStack {
        MorphingText(
            "This is a test",
            font: UIFont.systemFont(ofSize: 20),
            textColor: .black,
            textAlignment: .center
        )
        .frame(maxWidth: 200, maxHeight: 100)
    }
}

Similar to its use in UIKit, you can also specify the morphing effect manually (if you do not want to use the default .scale effect):

public var body: some View {
    VStack {
        MorphingText(
            "This is a test",
            effect: .burn, // Specify an alternative morphing effect with this line
            font: UIFont.systemFont(ofSize: 20),
            textColor: .black,
            textAlignment: .center
        )
        .frame(maxWidth: 200, maxHeight: 100)
    }
}
