You have to use ZK7, not lower. This is a new feature from ZK7.

Hi grzesiek,

Its Very Easy if you are using zk 7.

<button label="Login" iconSclass="z-icon-sign-in"/>

Go to --> FontAwesome

Here You have to Mention iconSclass="z-icon-xxx" for the Component.

Be careful in giving the Name..

EX: in FontAwesome site you'll find fa-xxx, here you have to use only the name avoiding fa.

have Fun..

M Varun.

ZK doesn't use the latest version (4.3.0).
Instead it uses some 4.x version that is between 3.2.1 and 4.3.0. So you need to guess correct combination for the supported icons between these two docs:

Not really guessing, just reading is enough :


As you can see there :

ZK 7.0.0 integrate FontAwesome 4.0.1 with prefix z-icon. To use it, just add iconSclass attribute.

Greetz chill.
