PSStyleSheet

This is a custom stylesheet driven by a plist file

PSStyleSheet is a plist driven label/button configuration class It tries to remedy the lack of a true stylesheet (like CSS) in UIKit

How to use: *** First make sure you have a style sheet set. Omit the .plist extension *** *** Make sure you have a style sheet called "MyStyleSheet.plist" in your app bundle *** *** Now set it ASAP after app launches: [PSStyleSheet setStyleSheet:@"MyStyleSheet"]; ***

  1. UILabel *myLabel = ...

  2. [PSStyleSheet applyStyle:@"myLabelStyle" forLabel:myLabel];

  3. ???

  4. Profit!

  5. UIButton *myButton = ...

  6. [PSStyleSheet applyStyle:@"myButtonStyle" forButton:myButton];

  7. ???

  8. Profit!

Future enhancements:

  • CSS to PLIST conversion script
  • Automated stylesheet updating by detecting when the stylesheet file is changed
