Long flights are great to sleep. Or to take care of missing documentation for projects. And that's exactly what I did in this last flight to SF.
So here it is,
BBCyclingLabel along with a demo video and some proper documentation.
Turns out this component was somehow discovered and got some love from Cocoa Controls a couple of weeks ago.
BBCyclingLabel is just like a
UILabel but allows you to perform custom animations when changing text.
Instead of using two
UILabel's and cross fading them, you can use this component and configure it to crossfade; it'll then take care of performing the cross fade for you.
