Styling the Map

MGLStyle

The proxy object for the current map style.

MGLStyle provides a set of convenience methods for changing Mapbox default styles using MGLMapView.styleURL. Learn more about Mapbox default styles.

It is also possible to directly manipulate the current map style via MGLMapView.style by updating the style’s data sources or layers.

Note

Wait until the map style has finished loading before modifying a map’s style via any of the MGLStyle instance methods below. You can use the -[MGLMapViewDelegate mapView:didFinishLoadingStyle:] or -[MGLMapViewDelegate mapViewDidFinishLoadingMap:] methods as indicators that it’s safe to modify the map’s style.
