You CAN set a background image for your view, or add an image view that your buttons lie on top of, as the other poster suggested. However, rotating between landscape and portrait will screw you up, and so will the different screen sizes on the iPhone and iPad.One more quick question. When setting the background of the screen (behind the buttons) Can you select an image or does it have to just be a color? For example, my buttons are going to be images that when combined make up a larger image. Can the background be the rest of the image not included in the button images so that it looks like one image except for the space between buttons?
