AngleGradientLayer is a CALayer implementation of angle gradient.


[Swift] Using in your code

class MyView: UIView {

    override class func layerClass() -> AnyClass {
        return AngleGradientLayer.self

    override init(frame: CGRect) {
        super.init(frame: frame)

        let l: AngleGradientLayer = self.layer as AngleGradientLayer
        let colors: Array<AnyObject> = [
            UIColor(red: 0, green: 0, blue: 0.5, alpha: 1).CGColor,
            UIColor(red: 1, green: 1, blue: 0.4, alpha: 1).CGColor]
        l.colors = colors

[Objective-C] Using in your code

(See demo project for more.)

#import "AngleGradientLayer.h"

@interface MyView : UIView

@implementation MyView

+ (Class)layerClass
    return [AngleGradientLayer class];

- (id)initWithFrame:(CGRect)frame
    if (!(self = [super initWithFrame:frame]))
        return nil;

    AngleGradientLayer *l = (AngleGradientLayer *)self.layer;
    l.colors = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:
        (id)[UIColor colorWithRed:0 green:0 blue:0.5 alpha:1].CGColor,
        (id)[UIColor colorWithRed:1 green:1 blue:0.4 alpha:1].CGColor,

    return self;
