    Hi Readers,

    Many time we will get HTML content in our API response which we need to load into our component like UILabel.  We can convert this HTML content into normal string or more specifically NSAttributed string which we can set into UILabel with the effect of HTML tags. Following code snippet is useful for that:

    func decodeEnt() -> String{
            let encodedData = htmlString.dataUsingEncoding(NSUTF8StringEncoding)!
            let attributedOptions : [String: AnyObject] = [
                NSDocumentTypeDocumentAttribute: NSHTMLTextDocumentType,
                NSCharacterEncodingDocumentAttribute: NSUTF8StringEncoding
            ]
            var attributedString:NSAttributedString?
            
            do{
                attributedString = try NSAttributedString(data: encodedData, options: attributedOptions, documentAttributes: nil)
            }catch{
                print(error)
            }
    
            
            return attributedString!.string
        }
    

    Here in this function you need to pass HTML string coming from server and you will get attributed string in return. There are different attribute used as attributedOptions.  Hope it helps.

    Thanks for reading.
