There are two main classes in ZATabBar:

  2. ZATabBar - Represents view for tabbar.

Preparation of data for the controller tabs

ViewController *vc1 = [[ViewController alloc] init];
vc1.title = @"controller 1";
vc1.view.backgroundColor = [UIColor yellowColor];
UINavigationController *nc1 = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:vc1];

ViewController *vc2 = [[ViewController alloc] init];
vc2.title = @"controller 2";
vc2.view.backgroundColor = [UIColor greenColor];
UINavigationController *nc2 = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:vc2];

ViewController *vc3 = [[ViewController alloc] init];
vc3.title = @"controller 3";
vc3.view.backgroundColor = [UIColor whiteColor];
UINavigationController *nc3 = [[UINavigationController alloc] initWithRootViewController:vc3];

NSArray *tabVCArray = @[vc1, vc2, vc3];

NSDictionary *imgDict1 = @{
    @"Normal":  [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabBarAR"],
    @"Active":  [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabBarARActive"]

NSDictionary *imgDict2 = @{
    @"Normal":  [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabBarGuide"],
    @"Active":  [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabBarGuideActive"]

NSDictionary *imgDict3 = @{
    @"Normal":  [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabBarInfo"],
    @"Active":  [UIImage imageNamed:@"tabBarInfoActive"]

NSArray *tabImgArray = @[imgDict1, imgDict2, imgDict3];

ZATabBarController *tabBarController = [[ZATabBarController alloc] initWithViewControllers:tabVCArray imageArray:tabImgArray];

Initialization and setting params:

ZATabBarController *tabBarController = [[ZATabBarController alloc] init];
[tabBarController setViewControllers:tabVCArray imageArray:tabImgArray];

Customizing tabbar

Setting the width of tabs:

tabBarController.tabBar.buttonItemWidth = 80.0f;

Setting background color:
