MyLocations: p253 Aspect Fill thumbnails [SOLVED]

Continuing the discussion from MyLocations: p.253 exercise aspect fill thumbnails [SOLVED]:

I took a bit of a different approach than the one by @linc.

After a bit of research, the UIImageView has a property on it called .contentMode. You can set this in LocationCell, just above where you set the image property on photoImageView.

I added the following code:

    photoImageView.contentMode = .scaleAspectFill

The problem with this is that the images will extend outside the bounds of the container. In @linc 's follow up to his post, he uses .clipsToBounds on the UIImageView property to solve the same issue he was having. So I used that method to do the same called from LocationCell.

The final additions looked as follows:

   func configure(for location: Location) {
    photoImageView.contentMode = .scaleAspectFill
    photoImageView.clipsToBounds = true
    photoImageView.image = thumbnail(for: location)

This is good solution, here’s mine:
