let textField = MultiplelineTextField(frame: textFieldFrame) textField.leftView = UIImageView(image: image) // or use the convenience property: // textField.leftImage to assign an image directly // below are properties that can be optionally customized textField.placeholder = "This is my placeholder" textField.placeholderColor = UIColor.red textField.isPlaceholderScrollEnabled = true textField.leftViewOrigin = CGPoint(x: 8, y: 8) someView.addSubview(textField)
