Hi guys,

I am trying to set the selected and unselected color for my UITabBar icons and text,

My code doesn't seem to be working what is the best solution, I have the following in the appdelegate

Note: the only thing thats not working is the unselected state.

UIImage *tabBarBackground = [UIImage imageNamed:@"TabBar.png"];
    
    [[UITabBar appearance] setBackgroundImage:tabBarBackground];
    
    [[UITabBar appearance] setTintColor:[UIColor blackColor]];
    [[UITabBar appearance] setSelectedImageTintColor:[UIColor blackColor]];
    
    
    [[UIView appearanceWhenContainedIn:[UITabBar class], nil] setTintColor:[UIColor redColor]];
    [[UITabBar appearance] setSelectedImageTintColor:[UIColor greenColor]];

Did you try TabBar delegate functions ? e.g., didSelectItem ? Change the image for all button and then selected image of the button that tapped ?

Look at this thread. You have to use this delegate functions and assigned `delegate` property to call it at runtime. In this delegate you can iterate on `tabBar.items` and assigned an image to them. First assigned deselect image to all of them then the item passed in delegate function assigned it a selected image. Currently i don't have mac so can not give you an example code, but will try to give you soon.
