Instance Property


The background image in a two-piece image.


@property(nonatomic, retain) UIImage *twoPieceImageBackground;


The image you specified is tinted with the appropriate color and composited behind the foreground image. This image is used only in multicolor environments. You may specify nil for this image if you want to display only the foreground, but in that case it’s better to use a one-piece image instead.

The image you specify for this property must be a template image—that is, an image where you convey the desired shape using only the alpha channel of the image. The color channels of the image are ignored. Fully and partially opaque areas of the template image are tinted using the appropriate tint color, which is determined by the clock face.

The image provider scales your image as needed to fit the target template. For information about the image sizes to use in different templates, see Apple Watch Human Interface Guidelines.
