Problem with CGRect and Frame in "Understanding Views and View Controllers"

Hi there,

I have a problem with the CGRectMake stuff in the above mentioned course.

It works perfectly when I try to move around and resize labels, but for buttons I can't change the position for some strange reason. I can use the "setTitle"-method, which works fine.

But self.showQuote.frame = CGRectMake(0, 0, 100, 100); simply doesn't do anything, even though labels work fine.

Any suggestions?

Best, Simon

Found the problem. Auto Layout needed to be disabled for the button in the Story Board.
