IBInspectable exposes class properties in the interface builder Attribute Inspector, and IBDesignable updates the view in realtime..

class OverCustomizableView : UIView {
    @IBInspectable var integer: Int = 0
    @IBInspectable var float: CGFloat = 0
    @IBInspectable var double: Double = 0
    @IBInspectable var point: CGPoint = CGPointZero
    @IBInspectable var size: CGSize = CGSizeZero
    @IBInspectable var customFrame: CGRect = CGRectZero
    @IBInspectable var color: UIColor = UIColor.clearColor()
    @IBInspectable var string: String = "We ❤ Swift"
    @IBInspectable var bool: Bool = false

Add logic for the layer properties
Add property observers for each property and update the layer accordingly.

class CustomView : UIView {
    @IBInspectable var borderColor: UIColor = UIColor.clearColor() {
        didSet {
            layer.borderColor = borderColor.CGColor

    @IBInspectable var borderWidth: CGFloat = 0 {
        didSet {
            layer.borderWidth = borderWidth

    @IBInspectable var cornerRadius: CGFloat = 0 {
        didSet {
            layer.cornerRadius = cornerRadius

I created custom view class.

import UIKit

class CustomView: UIView {

    init(frame: CGRect) {
        super.init(frame: frame)
        // Initialization code

    // Only override drawRect: if you perform custom drawing.
    // An empty implementation adversely affects performance during animation.
    override func drawRect(rect: CGRect)
        // Drawing code


But i don't know how to include created custom view in Storyboard because i heard that we can add custom views in storyboard design.
