    Hi There,

    I am trying to change the font size and positioning in the Telerik Example Listview project.  Which file do I need to look at to change the size and positioning of the text?

    Hi Evan,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    By default in TKListViewCell there is a detailedTextLabel which is of UILabel type and you can change its font and position by using the default UILabel properties responsible for this.

    The fallowing example shows how this could be done in the -listView: cellForItemAtIndexPath: method of TKListViewDelegate:

    -(TKListViewCell *)listView:(TKListView *)listView cellForItemAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
        TKListViewCell* cell = [listView dequeueReusableCellWithReuseIdentifier:@"cell" forIndexPath:indexPath];
        cell.detailTextLabel.text = @"TELERIK TELERIK TELERIK";
        cell.detailTextLabel.frame = CGRectMake(0, 0, 100, 100);
        cell.detailTextLabel.font = [UIFont systemFontOfSize:30];
        return cell;

    It is also possible to customize TKListView cell and add any subview to it like its shown in the example below:
    @implementation ListViewSelectionCell
        self = [super initWithFrame:frame];
        if(self) {
            self.backgroundView.backgroundColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:0.969 green:0.953 blue:0.933 alpha:1];
            _header = [[UILabel alloc] init];
            _header.lineBreakMode = NSLineBreakByWordWrapping;
            _header.numberOfLines = 0;
            _header.font  = [UIFont fontWithName:@"Helvetica-Bold" size:15];
            _header.textColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:0.294 green:0.251 blue:0.235 alpha:1];
            [self.contentView addSubview:_header];
            _content = [[UILabel alloc] init];
            _content.lineBreakMode = NSLineBreakByWordWrapping;
            _content.numberOfLines = 0;
            _content.font  = [UIFont fontWithName:@"Helvetica" size:14];
            _content.textColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:0.294 green:0.251 blue:0.235 alpha:1];
            [self.contentView addSubview:_content];
            _favIcon = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage:[UIImage imageNamed:@"fav-icon"]];
            _favIcon.hidden = YES;
            [_header addSubview:_favIcon];
        return self;
