Let's see the code that generated for the e-mail textField.

//SignInViewController.swift
import UIKit
class SignInViewController: UIViewController {
//Connection from an Interface Builder to a UI component
@IBOutlet private weak var emailTextField: UITextField!
override func viewDidLoad() {
super.viewDidLoad()
setupViews()
}
}
extension SignInViewController {
private func setupViews() {
//TextField properties
emailTextField.layer.borderColor = UIColor.salt.cgColor
emailTextField.layer.borderWidth = 1
emailTextField.layer.cornerRadius = 21.5
emailTextField.layer.masksToBounds = true
emailTextField.backgroundColor = UIColor.daisy
emailTextField.placeholder = NSLocalizedString("email", comment: "")
emailTextField.textColor = UIColor.indigo
emailTextField.font = UIFont.textStyle5
emailTextField.textAlignment = .left
emailTextField.setLeftView(leftViewFrame : CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: 22, height: 43))
}
}
