Add your own icons in extension of typo3


The API also provides the possibility to include your extension’s icons using either single icons or your own icon sprite.
Using single icons can be done with the following code in your ext_tables.php or ext_localconf.php:

$icons = array(
     'myicon' => t3lib_extMgm::extRelPath('myextension') . 'myicon.gif'
t3lib_SpriteManager::addSingleIcons($icons, 'myextension');

If your extension comes with a larger amount of icons you might want to use your own sprite. This includes your sprite as a image file and a CSS file. The css file should look like this:

.t3-icon-extensions-myextension {  
.t3-icon-extensions-myextension-icon1 { background-position: 0px 0px; }  
.t3-icon-extensions-myextension-icon2 { background-position: 0px -16px; }
