I am using the Sensible TableView an would like to create a cell that list business hours. For example:

Business Hours:
Monday to Friday: 9AM to 9PM
Saturday: 10AM to 5PM
Sunday: Closed


Business Hours:
Every Day: 9AM to 5PM

For some reason, I cannot get the SCTextViewCell, SCTableViewCell or SCLabelCell to resize automatically (from 1 line to multiple lines).

Here is the code that I used to test the SCTextViewCell:
SCTextViewCell *businessHoursCell = [SCTextViewCell cellWithText:NSLocalizedString(@"Business Hours", nil)];
	//NSString *str = @"Just one line";
	NSString *str = @"Monday - Friday: 7AM to 9PM nSaturday: 9AM to 5PM nSunday: Closed nChristmas, Easter: ClosednMy Wife's birthday: 9AM to 1PM";
	//NSString *str = _currentLocation.hoursOfOperation;
	businessHoursCell.detailTextLabel.text = str;
	businessHoursCell.autoResize = YES;
	businessHoursCell.detailTextLabel.numberOfLines = 0;
	businessHoursCell.editable = NO;
	businessHoursCell.userInteractionEnabled = NO;
	[detailSection addCell:businessHoursCell];

I did the same for the SCLabelView, but in that case also set the lineBreakMode to WordWrap.

I have attached what the output currently looks like.



Note: I am using version 2.2.0

Hi Dominic,

The easiest way to have STV create an auto resizing label cell is by creating a custom cell with a single label. I've created a project for you that demonstrates that, please find it attached. Please tell me if you need anything else.

Thanks, it worked.

Just to add to this post, here are the default positions (frames) of the labels:
- Title: 10,2,280,22
- Subtitle: 10,24,280,18

Here are the default fonts:
- Title: Helvetica Bold, size:18
- Subtitle: Helvetica, size: 14

Is it possible to do this with STV3.0 for reused cells in an Array of objects section?

Is this still the way to make a autosizing Label Cell in STV 5?


I have a SCPropertyDefinition for my field/cell as:

    SCPropertyDefinition *fullNameDef = [classDef propertyDefinitionWithName:@"fieldFullName__c"];
    fullNameDef.title = @"Name";
    fullNameDef.existsInEditingMode = NO;
    fullNameDef.type = SCPropertyTypeLabel;
    fullNameDef.cellActions.willConfigure = ^(SCTableViewCell *cell, NSIndexPath *indexPath)
        SCLabelCell *labelCell = (SCLabelCell *)cell;
        labelCell.label.textAlignment = NSTextAlignmentLeft;
        labelCell.label.numberOfLines = 0;


But the number of lines doesn't make it use multiple lines for long names.
