An extension to NSAttributedString for creating attributed strings by using a given format string as a template into which the remaining argument values are substituted. This is helpful for using in conjunction with internationalisation.

@interface NSAttributedString (CCLFormat)

+ (NSAttributedString *)attributedStringWithFormat:(NSString *)format, ...;

@end

Usage

NSAttributedString *blue, *green, *never, *result;

blue = [[NSAttributedString alloc] initWithString:@"Blue" attributes:@{
    NSFontAttributeName: [UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:16.0f],
    NSForegroundColorAttributeName: [UIColor blueColor],
}];

green = [[NSAttributedString alloc] initWithString:@"Green" attributes:@{
    NSFontAttributeName: [UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:16.0f],
    NSForegroundColorAttributeName: [UIColor greenColor],
}];

never = [[NSAttributedString alloc] initWithString:@"never" attributes:@{
    NSStrikethroughStyleAttributeName: @(NSUnderlineStyleSingle),
}];

result = [NSAttributedString attributedStringWithFormat:@"%@ and %@ must %@ be seen", blue, green, never];
