Label corner radius not doing anything
I change a button's corner radius just fine. Why won't a label's corner radius change? Do I have to do something special with the border or frame first?
lbl = ui.Label() lbl.frame = (20,20,100,100) lbl.corner_radius = (5)
You also need
lbl.border_width = 1
Thank you, this helped. The results were not as expected though (my fault). A border with a radius was indeed created; however, the sharp white label corners were still present as well. Hmmm
My solution was to use a text view and that worked better.
Looks like a bug to me.
Here is what I mean:
The reason is basically that labels don't clip their content by default (I think this has changed in iOS 8 due to improved support for some Asian languages), and there's currently no way to change that (well, in the 1.6 you could technically do it via
ctypes, but it requires quite a lot of code...) The easiest workaround would be to embed a label in a
ui.View(i.e. make it a subview of a view that clips).
