Sometimes it can be difficult to see if the dimensions of views within your app properly match those within your design, and sometimes you may just want to generate some dummy placeholder images to fill the interface during development – in these instances it’s very handy to be able to generate placeholder images, and display actual view size.

Here’s a library called MMPlaceHolder from Ralph Li that allows you to create placeholder images for your views with some nice features.

You can add the dimensions of the view to your placeholder images, or use it to display the dimensions of system views.

Usage can be as simple as:

[yourView showPlaceHolder];

This is an image showing MMPlaceHolder in action:

You can find MMPlaceHolder on Github here.

A great library for creating placeholder images.
