In your UILabel, UIButton or UITextField, set a text containing a placeholder anywhere you want the icon to be. Somethink like this


Then you can choose between 3 ways you can use SwiftIconFont.

####1. No Custom Class

Simply import SwiftIconFont and call processIcons on any UILabel, UIButton or UITextField that has a placeholder.


####2. Custom Class

The lazy way, just set your UILabel, UITextField, UIButton, UITextView, UIBarButtonItem class as SwiftIconLabel, SwiftIconTextField, SwiftIconButton, SwiftIconTextView, SwiftBarButtonItem, and thats it, your icons will be processed at runtime.

####3. Programmatically

import SwiftIconFont

label.font = UIFont.icon(from: .FontAwesome, ofSize: 50.0)
label.text = String.fontAwesomeIcon(code: "twitter")

####UIBarButtonItem (No Custom Class)

import SwiftIconFont

twitterBarButton.icon(from: .FontAwesome, code: "twitter", ofSize: 20)

####UITabBarItem (No Custom Class)

import SwiftIconFont
