Is there a way to have multiple lines of text in UILabel like in the UITextView or should I use the second one instead?

    I found a solution.

    One just has to add the following code:

    // Swift
    textLabel.lineBreakMode = .ByWordWrapping // or NSLineBreakMode.ByWordWrapping
    textLabel.numberOfLines = 0 
    // For Swift >= 3
    textLabel.lineBreakMode = .byWordWrapping // notice the 'b' instead of 'B'
    textLabel.numberOfLines = 0
    // Objective-C
    textLabel.lineBreakMode = NSLineBreakByWordWrapping;
    textLabel.numberOfLines = 0;
    // C# (Xamarin.iOS)
    textLabel.LineBreakMode = UILineBreakMode.WordWrap;
    textLabel.Lines = 0;  

    Restored old answer (for reference and devs willing to support iOS below 6.0):

    textLabel.lineBreakMode = UILineBreakModeWordWrap;
    textLabel.numberOfLines = 0;

    On the side: both enum values yield to 0 anyway.

    In IB, set number of lines to 0 (allows unlimited lines)

    When typing within the text field using IB, use "alt-return" to insert a return and go to the next line (or you can copy in text already separated out by lines).

    You can use \r to go to next line while filling up the UILabel using NSString.

    UILabel * label;
    label.text = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@ \r %@",@"first line",@"seconcd line"];

    Swift 3
    Set number of lines zero for dynamic text information, it will be useful for varying text.

    var label = UILabel()
    let stringValue = "A label\nwith\nmultiline text."
    label.text = stringValue
    label.numberOfLines = 0
    label.lineBreakMode = .byTruncatingTail // or .byWrappingWord
    label.minimumScaleFactor = 0.8 . // It is not required but nice to have a minimum scale factor to fit text into label frame

    you should try this:

    -(CGFloat)dynamicLblHeight:(UILabel *)lbl
        CGFloat lblWidth = lbl.frame.size.width;
        CGRect lblTextSize = [lbl.text boundingRectWithSize:CGSizeMake(lblWidth, MAXFLOAT)
        return lblTextSize.size.height;

    UILabel *labelName = [[UILabel alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, 100, 30)];
    [labelName sizeToFit];
    labelName.numberOfLines = 0;
    labelName.text = @"Your String...";
    [self.view addSubview:labelName];

    The best solution I have found (to an otherwise frustrating problem that should have been solved in the framework) is similar to vaychick's.

    Just set number of lines to 0 in either IB or code

    myLabel.numberOfLines = 0;

    This will display the lines needed but will reposition the label so its centered horizontally (so that a 1 line and 3 line label are aligned in their horizontal position). To fix that add:

    CGRect currentFrame = myLabel.frame;
    CGSize max = CGSizeMake(myLabel.frame.size.width, 500);
    CGSize expected = [myString sizeWithFont:myLabel.font constrainedToSize:max lineBreakMode:myLabel.lineBreakMode]; 
    currentFrame.size.height = expected.height;
    myLabel.frame = currentFrame;

    You can do that via the Storyboard too:

    1. Select the Label on the view controller
    2. In the Attribute Inspector, increase the value of the Line option (Press Alt+Cmd+4 to show Attributes Inspector)
    3. Double click the Label in the view controller and write or paste your text
    4. Resize the Label and/or increase the font size so that the whole text could be shown

    Set below either in code or in storyboard itself

    Label.lineBreakMode = NSLineBreakByWordWrapping; Label.numberOfLines = 0;

    and please don't forget to set left, right, top and bottom constraints for label otherwise it won't work.

    UILabel *helpLabel = [[UILabel alloc] init];
    NSAttributedString *attrString = [[NSAttributedString alloc] initWithString:label];
    helpLabel.attributedText = attrString;
    // helpLabel.text = label;
    helpLabel.textAlignment = NSTextAlignmentCenter;
    helpLabel.lineBreakMode = NSLineBreakByWordWrapping;
    helpLabel.numberOfLines = 0;

    For some reasons its not working for me in iOS 6 not sure why. Tried it with and without attributed text. Any suggestions.

    These things helped me

    Change these properties of UILabel

    label.numberOfLines = 0;
    label.adjustsFontSizeToFitWidth = NO;
    label.lineBreakMode = NSLineBreakByWordWrapping;

    And while giving input String use \n to display different words in different lines.

    Example :

     NSString *message = @"This \n is \n a demo \n message for \n stackoverflow" ;

    Use this to have multiple lines of text in UILabel:

    textLabel.lineBreakMode = NSLineBreakByWordWrapping;
    textLabel.numberOfLines = 0;


    textLabel.lineBreakMode = .byWordWrapping
    textLabel.numberOfLines = 0

    textLabel.lineBreakMode = UILineBreakModeWordWrap;
    textLabel.numberOfLines = 0;

    The solution above does't work in my case. I'm doing like this:

    - (CGFloat)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView heightForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
        // ...
        CGSize size = [str sizeWithFont:[UIFont fontWithName:@"Georgia-Bold" size:18.0] constrainedToSize:CGSizeMake(240.0, 480.0) lineBreakMode:UILineBreakModeWordWrap];
        return size.height + 20;
    - (UITableViewCell *)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
        UITableViewCell *cell = [tableView dequeueReusableCellWithIdentifier:CellIdentifier];
        if (cell == nil)
            // ...
            cell.textLabel.lineBreakMode = UILineBreakModeWordWrap;
            cell.textLabel.numberOfLines = 0;
            cell.textLabel.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"Georgia-Bold" size:18.0];
        // ...
        UILabel *textLabel = [cell textLabel];
        CGSize size = [text sizeWithFont:[UIFont fontWithName:@"Georgia-Bold" size:18.0]
                                            constrainedToSize:CGSizeMake(240.0, 480.0)
        cell.textLabel.frame = CGRectMake(0, 0, size.width + 20, size.height + 20);

    I agree with Jarred Olson, NSLineBreakByWordWrapping is default. I added property sizeToFit like the guide of Gurumoorthy Arumugam to fix it.

    If you want the font inside your label to adjust itself to fit into the boundaries of the label. You can use :

    textLabel.adjustsFontSizeToFitWidth = YES;

    Thanks all.

    If you have to use the:

    myLabel.numberOfLines = 0;

    property you can also use a standard line break ("\n"), in code, to force a new line.

    Use story borad : select the label to set number of lines to zero......Or Refer this

    lets try this

    textLabel.lineBreakMode = NSLineBreakModeWordWrap; // UILineBreakModeWordWrap deprecated     
    textLabel.numberOfLines = 0;

    Already answered, but you can do it manually in the storyboard too. Under Attributes Inspector for the Label, you can change Line Breaks to Word Wrap (or character wrap).

    In this function pass string that you want to assign in label and pass font size in place of self.activityFont and pass label width in place of 235, now you get label height according to your string. it will work fine.

    -(float)calculateLabelStringHeight:(NSString *)answer
        CGRect textRect = [answer boundingRectWithSize: CGSizeMake(235, 10000000) options:NSStringDrawingUsesLineFragmentOrigin attributes:@{NSFontAttributeName:self.activityFont} context:nil];
        return textRect.size.height;

    Try using this code:
    lblName.numberOfLines = 0;
    [lblName sizeToFit];

    On C#, this worked for me inside UITableViewCell.

            UILabel myLabel = new UILabel();
            myLabel.Font = UIFont.SystemFontOfSize(16);
            myLabel.Lines = 0;
            myLabel.TextAlignment = UITextAlignment.Left;
            myLabel.LineBreakMode = UILineBreakMode.WordWrap;
            myLabel.MinimumScaleFactor = 1;
            myLabel.AdjustsFontSizeToFitWidth = true;
           myLabel.Frame = new CoreGraphics.CGRect(20, mycell.ContentView.Frame.Y + 20, cell.ContentView.Frame.Size.Width - 40, mycell.ContentView.Frame.Size.Height);

    I think the point here is:-

                myLabel.TextAlignment = UITextAlignment.Left;
                myLabel.LineBreakMode = UILineBreakMode.WordWrap;
                myLabel.MinimumScaleFactor = 1;
                myLabel.AdjustsFontSizeToFitWidth = true;

    This code is returning size height according to text

    + (CGFloat)findHeightForText:(NSString *)text havingWidth:(CGFloat)widthValue andFont:(UIFont *)font
        CGFloat result = font.pointSize+4;
        if (text) 
            CGSize size;
            CGRect frame = [text boundingRectWithSize:CGSizeMake(widthValue, 999)
            size = CGSizeMake(frame.size.width, frame.size.height+1);
            result = MAX(size.height, result); //At least one row
        return result;

    Swift 4:

    label.lineBreakMode = .byWordWrapping
    label.numberOfLines = 0
    label.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
    label.preferredMaxLayoutWidth = superview.bounds.size.width - 10
