Is this possible? Yes, you can have your UITextView with a border and that too with a rounded corner. I was in search of a way to achieve this for over 6 months and could not get it. So did a work around for that, by drawing a view with lines around and behind the UITextView.

But today I stumbled upon this thread and was able to discover a way to do that.

Any way I will share the code here. If there are any negative implications behind this solution, please share it.


yourTextView.layer.borderWidth = 1;

yourTextView.layer.cornerRadius = 8; //This is for achieving the rounded corner.

yourTextView.layer.borderColor = [[UIColor grayColor] CGColor];

And don’t forget to include the Quartz core framework.

#import  <QuartzCore/QuartzCore.h>

Bye !
