How to trap on UIViewAlertForUnsatisfiableConstraints?

The Solution to How to trap on UIViewAlertForUnsatisfiableConstraints? is


This post helped me A LOT!

I added UIViewAlertForUnsatisfiableConstraints symbolic breakpoint with suggested action:

Obj-C project

po [[UIWindow keyWindow] _autolayoutTrace]

Symbolic breakpoint with custom action in Objective-C project

Swift project

expr -l objc++ -O -- [[UIWindow keyWindow] _autolayoutTrace]

Symbolic breakpoint with custom action

With this hint, the log became more detailed, and It was easier for me identify which view had the constraint broken.

Legend:
    * - is laid out with auto layout
    + - is laid out manually, but is represented in the layout engine because translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = YES
    • - layout engine host

Then I paused execution Pause and I changed problematic view's background color with the command (replacing 0x7f88a8cc2050 with the memory address of your object of course)...

Obj-C

expr ((UIView *)0x7f88a8cc2050).backgroundColor = [UIColor redColor]

Swift 3.0

expr -l Swift -- import UIKit
expr -l Swift -- unsafeBitCast(0x7f88a8cc2050, to: UIView.self).backgroundColor = UIColor.red

... and the result It was awesome!

Hinted View

Simply amazing! Hope It helps.
