JTabbedPane tabbedPane = new JTabbedPane();
ImageIcon icon = createImageIcon("images/middle.gif");

JComponent panel1 = makeTextPanel("Panel #1");
tabbedPane.addTab("Tab 1", icon, panel1,
                  "Does nothing");

The above code will display the image beside the text but is't possible to display the image above or below the text?

thanks

It has to work...


Try the following sample,


import java.awt.BorderLayout;
import java.awt.FlowLayout;

import javax.swing.*;

public class TabPaneTest extends JFrame
{
      public TabPaneTest()
      {
            super();
      
            initialize();      
      }
      
      private void initialize()
      {
            JPanel panel = (JPanel)getContentPane();
            panel.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
            
            JTabbedPane pane = new JTabbedPane();
            panel.add(pane, BorderLayout.CENTER);
            
            JPanel childPanel = new JPanel();
            childPanel.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
            childPanel.add(new JTextField(10));
            childPanel.add(new JLabel("Hellow how are you?"));
            
            Icon icon = new ImageIcon("C:\\Smiley.gif");
            pane.addTab("Test Pane", icon, childPanel, "Testting of image icon on tab pane");
            
            setSize(300, 300);
            setVisible(true);
            
            setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
      }

      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
            new TabPaneTest();
      }
}


>> C:\\Smiley.gif
change this to some other image which you have


I am suspecting your "createImageIcon" method.
