Here is the picture of exactly how I want the view to be positioned (I even have constraints set up in the interface builder)
Below are the images for what I want it to look like and how it is set up in interface builder (pic # 1)
The second one is the interface at runtime.
Note: Once the labels actually get textual data during runtime, the view expands to give the labels the space (i.e. just like the first picture)
My goal is to eliminate this "animated movement". I want the view/progress bar/everything to remain static once it has been situated at runtime and not bouncing up and down if data is in the labels or if it isn't.
I do NOT want to use a stack view because iOS 7 is not supported with that feature or I would.
Note: It's different colors, but the same view with the problem shows as stated in the question. I was lazy and don't want to explain myself how I was lazy and why they are different...
