How to crop the UIView as semi circle?

I want to crop UIView in semi circle shape

like this image

Thanks in advance.


A convenient way is just subclass a UIView, add a layer on it and make the view color transparent if it's not by default.

import UIKit

class SemiCirleView: UIView {

    var semiCirleLayer: CAShapeLayer!

    override func layoutSubviews() {

        if semiCirleLayer == nil {
            let arcCenter = CGPoint(x: bounds.size.width / 2, y: bounds.size.height / 2)
            let circleRadius = bounds.size.width / 2
            let circlePath = UIBezierPath(arcCenter: arcCenter, radius: circleRadius, startAngle: CGFloat.pi, endAngle: CGFloat.pi * 2, clockwise: true)

            semiCirleLayer = CAShapeLayer()
            semiCirleLayer.path = circlePath.cgPath
            semiCirleLayer.fillColor =

            // Make the view color transparent
            backgroundColor = UIColor.clear
