To resize UIView components proportionally, you can add constraints to the component that allow it to maintain its aspect ratio.

To add aspect ratio constraints in Interface Builder:

  1. Select the UIView component you want to resize.
  2. Click on the "Pin" button at the lower-right corner of the storyboard editor.
  3. Check the box for "Aspect Ratio."
  4. Set the aspect ratio value to the desired proportion, such as 1:1 for a square.
  5. Click "Add Constraints" to apply the changes.

Alternatively, you can add aspect ratio constraints programmatically using Auto Layout:

  1. Create an IBOutlet for the UIView component in your view controller.
  2. Add constraints to the view in the viewDidLoad() function or similar:
myView.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
    myView.widthAnchor.constraint(equalTo: myView.heightAnchor, multiplier: 1.0),
    // Set the multiplier to the desired proportion.

This will ensure that the UIView component maintains its aspect ratio whenever it is resized or its parent view is resized.
