UIButton title color change on highlight - How to turn it off?

I have created a button. The title's color is black by default. But when I press it, the color changes to be a little blue and never changes back again, how does this happen? Can anyone tell me why? And I want the button's title remain black all the time. How can I do that? I have tried

[button setTitleColor:[UIColor darkTextColor] forState:UIControlStateHighlighted];
[button setTitleColor:[UIColor darkTextColor] forState:UIControlStateSelected];

But There is no effect. When I add this in my code, it seems the button's title always blue.

Code as follows.

UIButton *button = [UIButton buttonWithType:UIButtonTypeRoundedRect];
[button setFrame:CGRectMake(20, 360, 280, 44)];
[button setTitle:NSLocalizedString(@"Continue", @"Label: TextLabel in Continue button") forState:UIControlStateNormal];
button.titleLabel.font = [UIFont fontWithName:@"Helvetica-Bold" size:20.0f];
button.titleLabel.textColor = [UIColor darkTextColor];
button.titleLabel.shadowColor = [UIColor blackColor];
button.autoresizingMask = UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleLeftMargin|UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleRightMargin|UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleBottomMargin|UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleWidth;

[self.view addSubview:button];
[button release];

Thanks everyone. I have sloved the problem. I think the root cause is

button.titleLabel.textColor = [UIColor darkTextColor];

When I remove this, and use

button setTitleColor:(UIColor) forState:(UIControlState);

The problem is solved!

Answer Source

you can use

[UIButton setTitleColor:forState:]

for all the states , then title color will remain same for all states.

[button setTitleColor:[UIColor redColor] forState:UIControlStateHighlighted];
[button setTitleColor:[UIColor redColor] forState:UIControlStateNormal];
[button setTitleColor:[UIColor redColor] forState:UIControlStateSelected];

Note:To avoide type or paste above code three times you can use following code suggested by Will,

[button setTitleColor:[UIColor redColor] forState:(UIControlStateHighlighted | UIControlStateNormal | UIControlStateSelected)];
