How to round the corners of a button

I have a rectangle image (jpg) and want to use it to fill the background of a button with rounded corner in xcode.

I wrote the following:

UIButton *button = [[UIButton buttonWithType:UIButtonTypeRoundedRect] retain];
CGRect frame = CGRectMake(x, y, cardWidth, cardHeight);
button.frame = frame;
[button setBackgroundImage:backImage forState:UIControlStateNormal];

However, the button I get with that approach doesn't have its corners rounded: it is instead a plain rectangle that looks exactly like my original image. How can I get instead an image with rounded corner to represent my button?



I think I got your problem, I tried the following solution with the UITextArea and I suppose this will work with UIButton as well.

first of all import this in your .m file -

#import <QuartzCore/QuartzCore.h>

and then in your loadView method add following lines

    yourButton.layer.cornerRadius = 10; // this value vary as per your desire
    yourButton.clipsToBounds = YES;

Hope this works for you and if yes do communicate.
