Instance Property

backgroundImage

The custom background image for the tab bar.

Declaration

@property(nonatomic, strong) UIImage *backgroundImage;

Discussion

If you specify a stretchable background image, the tab bar stretches your image to fill the available space. If your image is not stretchable and not large enough to fill the available space, the tab bar tiles the image. For information about how stretching works, see the UIImageResizingMode type in UIImage.

When a custom background image is present, the tab bar does not draw any blur effects behind itself, even when the translucent property is YES.
