A horizontal compass looks something like this if you are facing due East (90 degrees).
If you were facing due 355 degrees northwest, it would look like this:
As you turn the compass, the number should cycle from 0 -> 360 -> 0
So, my question is, how would you implement a view like this on the iPhone? I had a couple of ideas:
- Make one long image with all numbers
and tick marks, and shift it
left/right when the compass heading
- Create pieces of the view as tiles
and append them when the compass
- Create a line of tick marks that
shifts with the compass heading, and
just write numbers on it as needed.
How would you attack this problem? Im mainly looking for algorithmic advice, but if you ave code or pseudo-code to demonstrate, that would be helpful too.
