Objective-c – Rounded Corners on UIImage


I'm trying to draw images on the iPhone using with rounded corners, a la the contact images in the Contacts app. I've got code that generally work, but it occasionally crashes inside of the UIImage drawing routines with an EXEC_BAD_ACCESSKERN_INVALID_ADDRESS. I thought this might be related to the cropping question I asked a few weeks back, but I believe I'm setting up the clipping path correctly.

Here's the code I'm using – when it doesn't crash, the result looks fine and anybody looking to get a similar look is free to borrow the code.

- (UIImage *)borderedImageWithRect: (CGRect)dstRect radius:(CGFloat)radius {
    UIImage *maskedImage = nil;

    radius = MIN(radius, .5 * MIN(CGRectGetWidth(dstRect), CGRectGetHeight(dstRect)));
    CGRect interiorRect = CGRectInset(dstRect, radius, radius);

    CGContextRef maskedContextRef = UIGraphicsGetCurrentContext();

    CGMutablePathRef borderPath = CGPathCreateMutable();
    CGPathAddArc(borderPath, NULL, CGRectGetMinX(interiorRect), CGRectGetMinY(interiorRect), radius, PNDegreeToRadian(180), PNDegreeToRadian(270), NO);
    CGPathAddArc(borderPath, NULL, CGRectGetMaxX(interiorRect), CGRectGetMinY(interiorRect), radius, PNDegreeToRadian(270.0), PNDegreeToRadian(360.0), NO);
    CGPathAddArc(borderPath, NULL, CGRectGetMaxX(interiorRect), CGRectGetMaxY(interiorRect), radius, PNDegreeToRadian(0.0), PNDegreeToRadian(90.0), NO);
    CGPathAddArc(borderPath, NULL, CGRectGetMinX(interiorRect), CGRectGetMaxY(interiorRect), radius, PNDegreeToRadian(90.0), PNDegreeToRadian(180.0), NO);

    CGContextAddPath(maskedContextRef, borderPath);

    [self drawInRect: dstRect];

    maskedImage = UIGraphicsGetImageFromCurrentImageContext();

    return maskedImage;

and here's the crash log. It looks the same whenever I get one of these crashes

Best Solution

Here is an even easier method that is available in iPhone 3.0 and up. Every View-based object has an associated layer. Each layer can have a corner radius set, this will give you just what you want:

UIImageView * roundedView = [[UIImageView alloc] initWithImage: [UIImage imageNamed:@"wood.jpg"]];
// Get the Layer of any view
CALayer * l = [roundedView layer];
[l setMasksToBounds:YES];
[l setCornerRadius:10.0];

// You can even add a border
[l setBorderWidth:4.0];
[l setBorderColor:[[UIColor blueColor] CGColor]];
