I was looking at this documentation: UI Tab API. Why is it that the
backgroundImage:bgName.png doesn't seem to do anything when the emulator is fired?
I am using SDK v.1.8.2 and iPhone SDK 4.3. Please help. thanks.
Aside from the tab icon image, iOS doesn't allow you to change the look of the tab. Since Tab inherits properties from its parent View, they show up in the documentation, although (in this case) they don't behave like you may expect.
The latest documentation allows you to toggle inherited properties.
Patrick is right that functionality is not given even in the native iOS also...
so you should try to create a custom tabGroup in which you can set your custom image also
