Class

MDLCheckerboardTexture

A generator of texel data that creates a checkerboard pattern with two specified colors.

Declaration

class MDLCheckerboardTexture : MDLTexture

Overview

Like other procedural MDLTexture subclasses, the MDLCheckerboardTexture class generates texel data only when that data is first referenced, and then caches it for future use.

Topics

Creating a Checkerboard Texture

Configuring the Checkerboard Pattern

var color1: CGColor?

The color for half of the squares in the checkerboard pattern.

var color2: CGColor?

The color for the other half of the squares in the checkerboard pattern.

var divisions: Float

The number of squares along each dimension in the checkerboard pattern.
