How to Use

To use FZTextFocuser, first add an instance to your view, then pass an attributed string to it and set the properties that will define how the focused text will be displayed.

let textFocuser = FZTextFocuser(frame: self.view.frame)

textFocuser.attributedString = NSAttributedString(string: "Test String", attributes: [NSAttributedString.Key.font: UIFont.systemFont(ofSize: 40), NSAttributedString.Key.foregroundColor: UIColor.black])
textFocuser.focusedBackgroundColor = UIColor.red // this will be applied to the entire view when focused
textFocuser.addFocusableText("String", textColor: .yellow, backgroundColor: .blue, cornerRadius: 5) // this will apply only to the specified string

Also make sure to implement the FZTextFocuserDelegate protocol and set the delegate property of your FZTextFocuser instance to be notified when the user taps the text


To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.


You can use CocoaPods (https://cocoapods.org/) to install FZTextFocuser. If you don't have CocoaPods configured on your project yet, please refer to the CocoaPods Guides (https://guides.cocoapods.org/using/using-cocoapods.html).

Next, add the library to your Podfile:

pod 'FZTextFocuser'

Then, run the command:

$ pod install

Once CocoaPods is integrated with your project, make sure to always run your project using the .xcworkspace file instead of .xcodeproj.

Alternatively, you can just download the source code and add the FZTextFocuser.swift file to your project.
