Component For Creating Text Fields and Text Views With Slick Animated Floating Descriptions

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned an open source text field component with an animated floating description.

Here’s another library called RPFloatingPlaceholders that builds upon the same ideas.

RPFloatingPlaceholders contains both UITextField, and UITextView sub-classes so you can make single and multi-line text entry views. The description labels can pop in above the text entry, or move the text entry downwards with the label in places. Also supported is color customization.

Here’s an image showing RPFloatingPlaceholders from the readme in action with the downward animation:


You can find RPFloatingPlaceholders on Github here.

A nice way for creating descriptive text fields.
