Guess the Flag Project - unwanted space between the flag and the border

Forums > 100 Days of Swift


I've completed the Guess the Flag project.

One thing I wasn't able to figure out is why after adding a border to my images, it is not touching the flag but has a gap around.

This is my code:

override func viewDidLoad() {

        countries += ["estonia", "france", "germany", "ireland", "italy", "monaco", "nigeria", "poland", "russia", "spain", "uk", "us"]

        button1.layer.borderWidth = 1
        button2.layer.borderWidth = 1
        button3.layer.borderWidth = 1

        button1.layer.borderColor = UIColor.lightGray.cgColor
        button2.layer.borderColor = UIColor.lightGray.cgColor
        button3.layer.borderColor = UIColor.lightGray.cgColor

        askQuestion(action: nil)

Thank you



Thank you for this. Just one more thing to add... Once you make these changes be sure to delete the Default title. "Button" will show back up and mess with your layout.
