dhtmlxTabbar: using background images on tabs

I have the following XML file:

<?xml version="1.0"?>


[other tabs deleted]

Rather than have the number 1 show on the Tab I want to use a background image I have prepared called tab_home.png which I have designed for tabs which are right aligned.

This is the main html:

    Right TabBar




What do I need to do in order to get the graphic to show as the tab’s background image ?

Many thanks in advance for any help with this matter.

you can change the tabbar images. Please, see details in the following post:

That doesn’t seem to refer to what I want to do which is have a different name showing for each of my 10 tabs. I can’t use plain text to name the tabs as they are right aligned but instead I have created 10 png images which show the names on the tabs and I sort of need them to be set using css background-image ?

You can place html as the tab text. It can be an image:


I’m using an xml file to load the tab details though … can it also be done that way or do I need to abandon the xml file and use javascript addTab instead?

It’s possible to apply the same approach in case of xml loading:


OK, that’s working nicely now.  Many thanks for your help.
