This can be seen as a UITextField with multiple lines, but under the hood it is just a UITextView which aims to provide many of the functionalities currently available in the UITextField class. Currently the following functionalities are supported:

  • Multiple lines
  • Customizable left view
  • Customizable placeholder text


Via storyboards

Add a UITextView and set its custom class to MultilineTextField. From the storyboard you can customize the placeholder text and also an image to be shown at the left of the field text.

Via code

First of all you have to import the library import MultilineTextField.

After that just create an instance of the view an customize its properties:

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)


To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.


It requires Swift 4 and Xcode 9 or above
