Hi Ionic team,
last time when I used Ionic 1 there was a hack that was used to display the custom image as the icon on my tabs.
I am currently using Ionic 2 I have looked into the code and I am not sure how to get started if I want to include my own image on the tabs as my icon.
Any leads would be helpful. CSS classes will not help because I can’t update them dynamically. Any other suggestion on how to do it would be highly appreciated as this is a big problem for me along with the fact that I can’t change colors dynamically on navbars and tabs bars from a value in one of my local variables either.
The Ionic team has done some spectacular work on making everything so simple but it seems to me that something so simple should not require developers to have to modify the DOM (as suggested here -> https://stackoverflow.com/questions/42386672/ionic-2-use-picture-in-tab-button) to be able to achieve something as basic changing the icon on a tab to a custom image.
This was an issue with Ionic 1 as well and it took such a long time to figure that one out(which still included manipulation of the DOM).
