UIPickerView Row Color

Does anyone know how to change the color of a row (or row background) in the UIPickerView control from the iPhone SDK? Similiar to the below title for row, however I would also like to change the color of the row:

- (NSString *)pickerView:(UIPickerView *)pickerView titleForRow:(NSInteger)row forComponent:(NSInteger)component;

Thank you.


You can return an arbitrary view in the delegate's -pickerView:viewForRow:forComponent:reusingView: method, documented here.

Thanks Noah, that's exactly what I needed. I wanted to add the code here just in case anyone else needs (or wants to comment on :)

- (UIView *)pickerView:(UIPickerView *)pickerView viewForRow:(NSInteger)row forComponent:(NSInteger)component reusingView:(UIView *)view {

    CGRect imageFrame = CGRectMake(0.0, 0.0, 15, 15);
    UIImageView *label = [[[UIImageView alloc] initWithFrame:imageFrame] **autorelease**];

    if (row == 0)
        label.backgroundColor = [UIColor redColor];
    if (row == 1)
        label.backgroundColor = [UIColor blueColor];
    if (row == 2)
        label.backgroundColor = [UIColor blackColor];
    return label;
