What is – good for?

In my question “How do I get -[NSString sizeWithFont:forWidth:lineBreakMode:] to work?”, I learned that -[NSString sizeWithFont:constrainedToSize:lineBreakMode:] was actually what I needed. The documentation for -[NSString sizeWithFont:forWidth:lineBreakMode:] states explains it doesn’t actually wrap the text to additional lines. So how would I use it? (Examples would help.)

Add UIView Above All Other Views, Including StatusBar

I’m wanting to create a view (UIControl) which blocks all input and shows a UIActivityIndicatorView while authenticating a user. The UIActionSheet and UIAlertView both manage to add a black semi-transparent view over the top of all other views to block input and I’d like to do similar. I’ve tried adding my view to the top […]
