You can use a value function to specify the individual components of an animated transform.
For example, to create a basic animation that rotates a layer from 0° to 180° around its z-axis, you would create a
CABasic object with a
pi, and a
value of a
CAValue with a function name of
The value functions
translate require 3 values, for the individual
z components. When working with these value functions, you specify the animation's
to as arrays.
Listing 2 shows how you could animate a layer's scale from
1 using a value function.
