Add a property to an UITextfield

Is there a way to "add" a property to the UITextfield?

Hi Simen,

I believe you can add a computed property onto UILabel by using extensions. If you're creating a custom UITextfield, maybe you could try subclassing it.

// Here's an example using extensions
extension UITextfield {
   var someProperty: SomeType {
      get { }
      set { }
   }
}

Good luck! :)
