# ios7 - Custom UItabbar has a gap in the bottom

Im trying to create a custom UITabbar using images for the selected and unselected states.

this is my code:

if([UIImage instancesRespondToSelector:@selector(imageWithRenderingMode:)]){

tab_01_on_image =[[UIImage imageNamed:@"Tabbar_on_01"] imageWithRenderingMode:UIImageRenderingModeAlwaysOriginal];
tab_01_off_image =[[UIImage imageNamed:@"Tabbar_off_01"] imageWithRenderingMode:UIImageRenderingModeAlwaysOriginal];}else{
tab_01_on_image =[UIImage imageNamed:@"Tabbar_on_01"];
tab_01_off_image =[UIImage imageNamed:N@"Tabbar_off_01"];}[[[self.tabBarController.tabBar items] objectAtIndex:index] setFinishedSelectedImage:tab_01_on_image withFinishedUnselectedImage:tab_01_off_image];

This image shows the problem, the red color is the gap:

EDIT to add the code to create the UITabbar

self.tabBarController =[[BaseTabbarController alloc] init];self.tabBarController.delegate=self;self.tabBarController.viewControllers =@[navControll1, navControll2, navControll3, navControll4, navControll5];self.window.rootViewController =self.tabBarController;

the @2x image is 128x100px I also tried with 128x98px and got the same problem. –  FelipeOliveira Nov 15 at 12:47
Is your view designed with Interface Builder, or do you create it programmatically? –  zbMax Nov 15 at 13:27

Can you edit your question and add the code creating the tabbar please? By the way, follow this guidelines page for your icon dimension : developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/userexperience/… –  zbMaxNov 15 at 13:53

I finally found the solution. Changing the imageInsets of each tabbarItem did the trick.

tabBarItem1.imageInsets =UIEdgeInsetsMake(6,0,-6,0);
tabBarItem2.imageInsets =UIEdgeInsetsMake(6,0,-6,0);
tabBarItem3.imageInsets =UIEdgeInsetsMake(6,0,-6,0);
tabBarItem4.imageInsets =UIEdgeInsetsMake(6,0,-6,0);
tabBarItem5.imageInsets =UIEdgeInsetsMake(6,0,-6,0);
