MCUIColorUtils - UIColor missing methods.

Badge w/ Version Badge w/ Platform

MCUIColorUtils extends UIColor to add some convenience methods.


#import "UIColor+MCUIColorsUtils.h"

- (void)funWithColors

  // Use colors straight from the web
  [UIColor colorForHex:@"#fafbfc"];

  // ... if you prefer you can go with bytes
  [UIColor colorWithHexRGB:0xfafbfc];
  [UIColor colorWithHexRGBA:0xfafbfcff];

  // ...or with 0-255 values
  [UIColor colorWithIntegerRed:250 green:251 blue:252];
  [UIColor colorWithIntegerRed:250 green:251 blue:252 alpha:255];

  // ...or if all the channels are the same
  [UIColor colorWithGray:0.980392157]; // 250/255=0.980392157
  [UIColor colorWithIntegerGray:250];  // #fafafa

  // Get a lighter color
  UIColor color* = [UIColor colorForHex:@"#123456"];
  [color colorWithMultiplier:1.10]; // 110% of rgb channels

  // ... or a darker color
  [color colorWithMultiplier:0.90]; // 90% of rgb channels
