Hi, is there any way to customize the font face for the tab bar? I have an urgent need to customize the footer text to be a specific font face.
The Tab Bar is a native component so the look & feel is enforced by iOS/Android SDK’s.
While it is possible to fork the module and override the system defaults this tends to break between operating system updates so I really can’t recommend it!
Generally, if you need custom versions of native screen elements, my advice would be to implement them in HTML/CSS.
Hi Antoine, what would be the steps needed to update a module with it? This app will only be live for like 2 months so I’m not too concerned with the newer versions.
I tried to fork the tabbar but when I try and run gradle I get task updateModule not found in root…
I haven’t done it myself, but if you dig a bit in StackOverflow for examples of how folk have overridden default styles for the controls you should find a couple examples.
re: gradle issues
I’m not sure how you’re running things on your side, but the workflow for me is:
Import forked module into my project in the Trigger Toolkit
Hit update inspector for iOS & Android
Open module in Android Studio
Develop as per usual inside Android Studio
When it’s time to do a release, either select “updateModule” within Android Studio or drop to the command line and:
Drop me a ping on firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re still not having any luck with getting gradle running.
