Modifying the Featured Photos on Your iPhone: A Step-by-Step Guide

An alternative solution is available to achieve the desired outcome without using images and entirely through code. This approach involves setting a property when loading from nib and subsequently calling it from within a designated function. Another option is to establish a delegate protocol and utilize it as a property instead of the parent view controller type.

    UIImage *blueButtonImage = [blueImage stretchableImageWithLeftCapWidth:12 topCapHeight:0];
    [myButton setBackgroundImage:blueButtonImage forState:UIControlStateHighlighted];
}

The original image:
