Need Updated Fix For Changing Tab Bar Color iOS!

Hi
having major headache trying to change the Tab Bar colour.

I have checked the previous tutorials but they don't apply to the current source code downloaded.

Does anyone know how to change in Xcode for iOS?

You should check out Cris1's Tab Bar Utility plugin. This thing is awesome. You can even use color tab bar images.

Hi Calypso
I've used the Tab Bar plugin and indeed its good, but its only for iOS I need something for both iOS and Android.

Go into your BT_tabBarController.m (BT_Layout folder) at line 54 inside viewDidLoad, you should see something like:

Make your changes there, and let me know if that works, seems to work for me.

Hope this helps.

Worked it out. Thank Mr David!

For anyone else

Go into your BT_tabBarController.m (BT_Layout folder) at line 48 inside viewDidLoad, you should see something like:

//after the tabber's view loaded
- (void)viewDidLoad {
[super viewDidLoad];
[BT_debugger showIt:self message:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"view loaded%@", @""]];

Just below this bit of code add this:

// ios 7 -- changes icon tint and bar tint
[[UITabBar appearance] setTintColor:[UIColor whiteColor]];
[[UITabBar appearance] setBarTintColor:[UIColor blackColor]];

your final code should now look like this:

//after the tabber's view loaded
- (void)viewDidLoad {
[super viewDidLoad];
[BT_debugger showIt:self message:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"view loaded%@", @""]];

// ios 7 -- changes icon tint and bar tint
[[UITabBar appearance] setTintColor:[UIColor whiteColor]];
[[UITabBar appearance] setBarTintColor:[UIColor blackColor]];

}

Should now be working.

Mr David and Dragon007,

Thanks for your help, this solved something I was stuck on for hours.

One last item I am having trouble adjusting is the description that appears below my icons. For example I have the text: Home below my Home Icon and Video below my Video icon. Do you know of a way to change that font color as well?

Thank you,

Henry

Hi Almosturban
I was under the impression that this code also included changing the colour of the font colour under the icon. Have you tried changing the colour in the code to see? If not, I will find out for you, but cannot do this until much later in the day as I have just rolled out of bed.
