Instance Property

color

The color value for the material property.

Declaration

var color: CGColor? { get set }

Discussion

A material property with a color value uses a uniform color for all pixels rendered using the material. This option is useful for base colors of solid-colored objects, and also for material semantics where variation across the surface of the material is unnecessary. To vary colors across a surface, use a texture image instead.
