Usage

Methods

Call the following methods on any UIImageView instance to set the image:

  • setImageForName(string: String, backgroundColor: UIColor?, circular: Bool, textAttributes: [String: AnyObject]?)

string is the string used to generate the initials. This should be a user's full name if available.

backgroundColor is an optional parameter that sets the background color of the image. Pass in nil to have a color automatically generated for you.

circular is a boolean parameter that will automatically clip the image to a circle if enabled.

textAttributes is an optional dictionary of predefined character attributes for text. You can find the list of available keys in NSAttributedString

Example
let randomImage: UIImageView = UIImageView.init(frame: CGRect(x: self.view.bounds.midX - 40, y: self.view.bounds.midY - 80 - 40, width: 80, height: 80))
randomImage.setImageForName(string: "Michael Bluth", backgroundColor: nil, circular: true, textAttributes: nil)
