Custom Rounding corners on UIView

So I’ve been stuck on this one for awhile, read and tried many different solutions online, but can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. What I’m trying to accomplish should be very simple: I have a UIView and I want to round its bottom left and right corners so that they are clipped and not drawn.

This is what I have so far (vwView is my outlet for a custom view on screen):

  • Error with cocoapods link_with after update to 1.0.0
  • ELCImagePickerController does not back to viewController in swift
  • NSFileManager: removing item
  • In-App Purchases: Crash when view disappear
  • Getting a list of Images from a website and displaying it
  • Keep a Firebase listener in memory when the app is in background
  • var layerTest = CAShapeLayer()
    var bzPath = UIBezierPath(roundedRect: vwView.bounds, byRoundingCorners: [.BottomLeft, .BottomRight], cornerRadii: CGSizeMake(10, 10) )
    layerTest.path = bzPath.CGPath
    vwView.layer.mask = layerTest;

    What am I doing wrong? ALSO: This is just my prototype because I really want to do this on a UITableViewCell, so if there is a different approach I need to take for that, that could also be helpful.

    The problem is that vwView gets resized later to fit the screen, but you don’t update the path for its new size. There’s no particularly trivial fix for this. You basically need to make vwView a custom class (if it’s not already) and update the mask in layoutSubviews. Example:

    public class RoundedBorderView: UIView {
        public var roundedCorners: UIRectCorner = [ .BottomLeft, .BottomRight ] {
            didSet { self.setNeedsLayout() }
        public var cornerRadii: CGSize = CGSizeMake(10, 10) {
            didSet { self.setNeedsLayout() }
        public override func layoutSubviews() {
        private func updateMask() {
            let mask = maskShapeLayer()
            mask.path = UIBezierPath(roundedRect: bounds, byRoundingCorners: roundedCorners, cornerRadii: cornerRadii).CGPath
        private func maskShapeLayer() -> CAShapeLayer {
            if let mask = layer.mask as? CAShapeLayer {
                return mask
            let mask = CAShapeLayer()
            layer.mask = mask
            return mask

    Change the class of vwView to RoundedBorderView and it will maintain its own mask layer.
