Custom Map Padding

How use map padding

If your app uses UI components that overlays the map, like a search bar, a bottom sheet or other components, you'll have to add padding to the MPMapControl. The first step is to create a new UIView or use an existing one.

// Creating a simple red view for the demo
let testView = UIView()
testView.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
testView.backgroundColor = .red

Add Constraints to the newly created UIView

// Adding Auto Layout constraints for the red view
testView.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: self.view.leadingAnchor).isActive = true
testView.trailingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: self.view.trailingAnchor).isActive = true
testView.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: self.view.bottomAnchor).isActive = true
testView.heightAnchor.constraint(equalToConstant: 250).isActive = true

Add mapPadding to mapControl

mapControl?.mapPadding = UIEdgeInsets(top: 0, left: 0, bottom: 250, right: 0) 


It's important to notice that you need to adjust the padding so it fits your solution.
