For creating glossy buttons from code:

SSGlossyButton *button =
     [[[SSGlossyButton alloc] initWithStyle:kSSGlossyButtonStyleBlue
                                      frame:CGRectMake(20.0f, 20.0f, 280.0f, 0.0f)
                                      title:@"Button Title"
                                      block:^(SSGlossyButton *button) {
                                          NSLog(@"Button tapped.");
                                      }] autorelease];
 [self.view addSubview:button];

For adding glossy buttons to your view from the Interface Builder;

  • Drop a standard UIButton onto your view from the Library.
  • Set its height to 46px from the Size Inspector.
  • Change the button's class from UIButton to SSGlossyButton from the Identity Inspector.
  • Now you can connect actions and outlets to your glossy button, configure its other attributes as you do with any UIButton in Interface Builder.

For incorporating glossy buttons into your table views;

  • In your tableview delegate's cellForRowAtIndexPath: method, create an SSGlossyButtonCell object and return it.
  • Return the correct cell height in the heightForRowAtIndexPath: method by calling [SSGlossyButtonCell cellHeight].

- (UITableViewCell *) tableView:(UITableView *)tableView
           cellForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
    SSGlossyButtonCell *buttonCell =
        [[[SSGlossyButtonCell alloc] initWithButtonStyle:kSSGlossyButtonStyleGreen
                                                   title:[NSString stringWithFormat:
                                                              @"Button - %i", indexPath.row]
                                                   block:^(SSGlossyButton *button) {
                                                       NSLog(@"Button tapped.");
                                                   }] autorelease];
    return buttonCell;

heightForRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath
    return [SSGlossyButtonCell cellHeight];
