Custom icons using JToolBarHelper::title

Postby tfuller » Thu Sep 20, 2007 1:38 am

I'm confused by how to use my own icon in an admin menu. It appears that i need to use some CSS but not sure exactly the procedure.

I've got this in my view.html.php:

Code: Select all

$document =& JFactory::getDocument();


Code: Select all

.icon-48-generic {

In my general.css file.

Then back to view.html.php:

Code: Select all

JToolBarHelper::title(   JText::_( 'Books Manager' ), 'generic.png' );

Just shows the generic.png in my admin toolbar.

Any advice?

Try changing generic to something else.  i.e. myspecialicon or openbible.png.  Your style might get overwritten by the Joomla! default, depending on the order it gets loaded.

When I used addStyleSheet, it did not work for some reason.. so I did the following which did work:

$doc =& JFactory::getDocument();
$style = " .icon-48-fb {background-image:url(components/com_formbuilder/fb.gif); no-repeat; }";
$doc->addStyleDeclaration( $style );

JToolBarHelper::title( JText::_( 'Generalized Form Builder     ' ), 'fb.gif' );
