To run the example project, clone the repo, and run pod install from the Example directory first.

If you need different border color or shadow color on different control state, subclass AHButton is required.

Button shadow changed with state

[self.buttonFromStoryBoard setShadowColor:shadowColor  offset:CGSizeMake(0, 3.0) opacity:1.0 radius:1.0 forState:UIControlStateNormal];
[self.buttonFromStoryBoard setShadowColor:buttonColor  offset:CGSizeMake(0, 3.0) opacity:1.0 radius:1.0 forState:UIControlStateHighlighted];

Button border changed with state

[self.buttonFromStoryBoard2 setCornerRadius:10.0 borderWidth:1.0 borderColor:[UIColor grayColor] forState:UIControlStateHighlighted];

If you only need to change UIButton background color or background gradient on different control state, use category UIbutton+Appearance.

[button3 setBackgroundColor:[UIColor yellowColor] forState:UIControlStateNormal];
[button3 setBackgroundColor:[UIColor greenColor] forState:UIControlStateHighlighted];
