The Shiny Objects module discussed in this session will allow the developer to easily add visually appealing buttons to their projects without the use of special graphics files. Make a button that really shines with a call as simple as Ti.UI.createButton!
See how easy it was to create this module and benefit from the lessons learned during its development.
Why All the Fuss?
The stock button provided by Apple is plain and boring. It lacks the depth, color and presence of the standard Apple buttons. The standard buttons are mostly available for use in the navigation bar and cannot be put together in a view to add multiple buttons.
This session will be of most interest to intermediate and advanced developers looking to create or extend Titanium functionality, but is also quite useful for the beginning developer to learn how to easily add a cool looking button to their projects. Objective-C and Java will be discussed but are not necessary to use this module.
- Shine and Gloss Using Gradient Layers
- Consistent Look and Feel for iPhone and Android Apps
