Light wrapper of UIButton that allows extra customization for tvOS
If you would like to have the same level of customization in tableview cells, you should definitely check out TvOSCustomizableTableViewCell
FocusTvButton allows the customization of UIButtons in tvOS, adding extra properties to customize layout attributes which are not customizable on UIButtons out of the box.
Two color, linear gradient properties:
A simple two color, linear gradient can be configured by setting either "background end" color properties. If neither "background end" color properties are set then
FocusTvButton will use a solid background color by default.
FocusTvButton can be integrated both programmatically or embedded in a xib file.
FocusTvButton is a subclass of UIButton, so it can be created and used as a regular UIButton.
let myButton = FocusTvButton() myButton.focusedBackgroundColor = .red myButton.normalBackgroundColor = .white myButton.cornerRadius = 12.0 // with optional gradient myButton.focusedBackgroundEndColor = .green myButton.normalBackgroundColor = .black myButton.gradientStartPoint = .zero myButton.gradientEndPoint = CGPoint(x: 0, y: 1)
Due to the fact that FocusTvButton is a subclass of UIButton, the first step is to drag and drop a regular UIButton from the Object library to your view.
Then change the value of "Custom Class" to "FocusTvButton", and the Button type to "Custom" to avoid the default focus behavior.
And that's all...
The custom properties can be configured directly on the Storyboard using IBInspectables.
