I have watched countless presentations on views and stackviews. I’ve built a nice little app for in-house use at work. I simply CANNOT crack layouts to view on different phones / tablets dimensions.
I watched two from codeWithChris, and although I followed step by step, my Xcode simply refuses to behave as his does. I’ve bee struggling with this topic for about 30 full hours now.
His narration was really good too. He was slow and methodical, but Xcode over here just will not cooperate.
I’m on Xcode 11.6.
I’ve got 14 elements on the screen (textFields, a pickerView, and a lot of labels).
7 of these elements are as simple as you’d want: vertically aligned and they stretch from side to side. The other 7 are in need of views and stack views to align them properly.
I simply cannot get Xcode to perform as no less than 10 people have explained. And, I can’t get anyone to offer more than just a few vague lines with no followup when their instructions/advice were not clear.
Stop making tutorials that are kindergarten level in complexity. I need to see some more difficult alignments that require nesting.
I’m hoping this community can help, because I’m right about there for motivation now. I’m ready to walk away from this at this point. I can’t invest any more time if aligning damn boxes on a screen is really this complicated.
