Objective-c – Replacement for deprecated sizeWithFont: in iOS 7


In iOS 7, sizeWithFont: is now deprecated. How do I now pass in the UIFont object into the replacement method sizeWithAttributes:?

Best Solution

Use sizeWithAttributes: instead, which now takes an NSDictionary. Pass in the pair with key UITextAttributeFont and your font object like this:

CGRect rawRect = {};
rawRect.size = [string sizeWithAttributes: @{
    NSFontAttributeName: [UIFont systemFontOfSize:17.0f],

// Values are fractional -- you should take the ceil to get equivalent values
CGSize adjustedSize = CGRectIntegral(rawRect).size;
