Corner Radius for iOS icons
- April 20, 2012
If you are designing icons for iOS in say Photshop or Illustrator and you want to have a border aroud the icon, you need to know the corner radius (radii?) so iOS doesn't cut them out.
We tried to find the exact information for ages, but couldn't get a definitive answer. Until now.
The radii are:
- Icon512.png - 512px - 89.8245614035098
- Icon.png - 57px - 10
- Icon@2x.png - 114px - 20
- Icon-72.png - 72px - 12.6315789473686
- Iconfirstname.lastname@example.org - 144px - 25.2631578947371
- Icon-Small.png - 29px - 5.08771929824567
- Icon-Small@2x.png - 58px - 10.1754385964913
Very handy bit of information
UIPopover without an arrow
- April 04, 2012
Ever wanted to place a UIPopover on a View but not have an arrow?
The UIPopoverDirectionArrowDirection enum is defined as
UIPopoverArrowDirectionUp = 1UL << 0,
UIPopoverArrowDirectionDown = 1UL << 1,
UIPopoverArrowDirectionLeft = 1UL << 2,
UIPopoverArrowDirectionRight = 1UL << 3,
UIPopoverArrowDirectionAny = UIPopoverArrowDirectionUp | UIPopoverArrowDirectionDown |
UIPopoverArrowDirectionLeft | UIPopoverArrowDirectionRight,
UIPopoverArrowDirectionUnknown = NSUIntegerMax
Which doesn't include UIPopoverArrowDirectionNone, or does it?
There is an undocumented feature that if you call presentPopoverFromRect with a 0 for permittedArrowDirections, it will show no arrows. I'm not sure if this is 100% supported by Apple, but a trawl around the internet suggests that apps using this have been accepted.
So call the code like below, and hey presto! No arrows
