How do I append attributed strings in Swift?
« on: April 07, 2015, 03:37:16 PM »
Although you can apply attributes to a range of strings, sometimes it's just easier to append two attributed strings rather than mess with ranges.

You can append attributed strings only if the first string is a mutable attributed string. The following code appends an underlined attributed string to a regular attributed string:

Code: [Select]
var underlineAttribute = [NSUnderlineStyleAttributeName: NSUnderlineStyle.StyleSingle.rawValue]
var mutableAttString = NSMutableAttributedString(string: Settings.sharedInstance.player1Name, attributes: underlineAttribute)
mutableAttString.appendAttributedString(NSAttributedString(string: ": \(Settings.sharedInstance.playerNumberOfWins)"))

All the best!
