I'm seeing this error for a XIB. But everything else compiles and there doesn't seem to be any harm done by this error. Is this something I need to worry about? What's the problem here and how would I go about fixing this?

UPDATE: I've updated cocoapods to the latest version (0.36.3) and while that fixed the problem for a few compiles, the error has returned and I'm now seeing an additional error:

Two show as 'critical' (red circles with exclamation  This makes it very difficult to do layout since we have no preview. It's not the end of the world and we can work around it, but appears to be an imcompatibility with Xcode 9.1. We can still build and run our project.

After doing some research and digging, I can confirm, that there is no way to solve this problem.

This is an Xcode's bug.

That's all. We must wait for update.

Just restart the Xcode for now.

Latest reply on May 21, 2018 5:04 AM by  Hi, This is an issue with new Xcode, new CocoaPods 1.5 and it's been covered here: CocoaPods/CocoaPods#7606. Either downgrade your CocoaPods to 1.4 or use the workaround that is mentioned here: (I used this workaround for myself and it worked)

This worked for me:

  1. remove derived data (preferences > locations)
  2. restart Xcode
  3. clean project (product > clean)

2016 is the year, xCode 7.3.1: I got this error. (Using cocoa pods 1.0 but it does not matter)

CAUSE: a special UILabel subclass was used in IB. ring a bell?

ELEGANT SOLUTION:

1: Subclass TTTAttributedLabel or FXLabel or whatever u have. Use that in IB.

2: Add these lines in the subclassed .h file:

#ifndef IB_DESIGNABLE
#define IB_DESIGNABLE
#endif

@class LabelFromPod;


IB_DESIGNABLE @interface YourLabel : LabelFromPod {
 ...
}

3: then I think you have to clear project, exit xCode, rebuild (usual xCode panic protocol) and the problem will go away.

UPDATE 2017 xCode 8.2.1: It all getting worse :( The blank VC problem: The IB does not even load the UI elements for a view controllers that have these IB_DESIGNABLEs. I'm clueless :)

I faced the same problem using TTTAttributedLabel and followed Andrey's answer to try to fix it. The build was successful but after that it seems that the bundle files of other pod modules (TSMessage, SVProgressHUD in my case) cannot be loaded. This is also stated in the Cocoapods blog post and I do not want to move the bundle resources to the mainBundle (and I have not verified if this works.)

Therefore I choose to remove TTTAttributedLabel from the Podfile and just include the source directly to get rid of that error. This works for me and I hope it is also another answer to this problem.

  • Actually just updating cocoapods seemed to do the trick for me. I'm surprised cocoapods was giving me an error in an unrelated XIB but so it goes...
  • I take that back. The error has returned. I made the additional changes you suggested and the error still persists and I now also get multiple O-link warnings about iOS8
  • Tried that multiple times. no luck
  • You're right. I'm referencing TTTAttributedLabel in my XIB. As soon as I remove that the error goes away. If I put it back, the error returns. I'm not sure what I can do about that now but at least I know the cause. Thanks for your help!
  • I just added "use_frameworks!" and everything starts working fine with FSCalender. Thanks
  • that's true. for me it has nothing to do with cocoa pods, it happens with my own IB designables all the time. tried everything...
  • What version of Xcode was this? I'm using 7.1.0, I still have it
  • I'm using Xcode 8.0 this issue is still not addressed.
  • The interface builder is very slow and buggy. Almost can't be used for Component design. Yes, it's still the same in Xcode 8.0. I think one of the most important reason I enjoy more in ios development than android development is the IDE tool is much better. Apple did very bad job in their xcode tool. It's becoming worse and worse!!!
  • I'm on Xcode 8.2, and it's still the same after 1.5 years. Unbelievable.
