Instance Method

drawRadialGradient(_:startCenter:startRadius:endCenter:endRadius:options:)

Paints a gradient fill that varies along the area defined by the provided starting and ending circles.

Declaration

func drawRadialGradient(_ gradient: CGGradient, startCenter: CGPoint, startRadius: CGFloat, endCenter: CGPoint, endRadius: CGFloat, options: CGGradientDrawingOptions)

Parameters

gradient

A CGGradient object.

startCenter

The coordinate that defines the center of the starting circle.

startRadius

The radius of the starting circle.

endCenter

The coordinate that defines the center of the ending circle.

endRadius

The radius of the ending circle.

options

Option flags (drawsBeforeStartLocation or drawsAfterEndLocation) that control whether the gradient is drawn before the starting circle or after the ending circle.

Discussion

The color at location 0 in the CGGradient object is mapped to the circle defined by startCenter and startRadius. The color at location 1 in the CGGradient object is mapped to the circle defined by endCenter and endRadius. Colors are linearly interpolated between the starting and ending circles based on the location values of the gradient. The option flags control whether the gradient is drawn before the start point or after the end point.
