Dear Friends,

In Today’s post I will show you how to convert a simple hex color string to UIColor in Swift 3.

Code

static func hexStringToUIColor (hex:String) -> UIColor {
        var cString:String = hex.trimmingCharacters(in: 
                                   .whitespacesAndNewlines).uppercased()
        
        if (cString.hasPrefix("#")) {
            cString.remove(at: cString.startIndex)
        }
        
        if ((cString.characters.count) != 6) {
            return UIColor.gray
        }
        
        var rgbValue:UInt32 = 0
        Scanner(string: cString).scanHexInt32(&rgbValue)
        
        return UIColor(
            red: CGFloat((rgbValue & 0xFF0000) >> 16) / 255.0,
            green: CGFloat((rgbValue & 0x00FF00) >> 8) / 255.0,
            blue: CGFloat(rgbValue & 0x0000FF) / 255.0,
            alpha: CGFloat(1.0)
        )
}
