#define RGB(r, g, b) [UIColor colorWithRed:r/255.0 green:g/255.0 blue:b/255.0 alpha:1]
In iOS 5 you can simply tint your UISwitch control. To do that, you can use
onTintColorproperty. In this example we will create a green UISwitch.
// sw is your UISwitch instance sw.onTintColor = RGB(13, 165, 11); [self.view addSubview:sw];
You can even create a image tint by using
-[UIColor colorWithPatternImage:] method.
New version of iOS (finally) allows you to tint your tab bar and change color of selected item. Here’s the code for creating a dark-green tab bar with light-green selection:
// tb is your UITabBar instance tb.tintColor = RGB(6, 71, 5); tb.selectedImageTintColor = RGB(213, 239, 145);
One of the new features of iOS 5 is allows you to customize your progress bars and spinners. To create a green UIProgressView, simply change it’s tint colors:
// pb is your UIProgressView instance pv.progressTintColor = RGB(6, 71, 5); pv.trackTintColor = RGB(213, 239, 145);
To create a blue UIActivityIndicatorView, you have to change the
// aiv is your UIActivityIndicatorView instance aiv.color = [UIColor blueColor];
There is also a new
-[UIProgressView setProgress:animated:] method, which allows you to animate progress bar’s progress.
