    I need have a RadRibbonBar with four main tabs. I cannot seem to find any documentation about adding images on the tab itself. The RadTabStrip has an ImageURL property. Would I have to use a TemplateControl to achieve this?

    I was unable to figure out how to do this on the server side but I have implemented a client side method of appending images to a tab. The only thing I had to do server side was add an attribute to each tab defining the ImageURL for that tab. Then, on the client iterate through the tabs and append the image. Hope this helps someone else.

    $(document).ready(function ()
        // add the images on the initial page load
        // add the images every partial postback
    function AddTabImages(tabID, imageID)
        var tabs = $('.rrbTab');
        $.each(tabs, function ()
            var tabLabel = $(this).find('.rrbTabText');
            var imageURL = $(this).attr('ImageUrl');
            var image = document.createElement('img');
            image.className = 'rrbTabImage';
            image.src = imageURL;

    Hello Jonathan,

    Thank you for sharing your approach for setting images to the tabs. Indeed the inability to do this by setting an ImageUrl property of the RibbonBarTab currently is a limitation of the RibbonBar. I would suggest logging this as a feature request and voting for it in our Feedback Portal.
