In your custom module add below code in layout xml file

<adminhtml_customer_edit>
    <reference name="customer_edit_tabs">
        <action method="addTab"><name>customtab_name</name><block>modulename/adminhtml_customer_tab</block></action>
    </reference>
</adminhtml_customer_edit>

Create block file in your custom module

<?php
class Namespace_Modulename_Block_Adminhtml_Customer_Tab
extends Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Template
implements Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Widget_Tab_Interface {
   /**
     * Set the template for the block
     *
     */
    public function _construct()
    {
        parent::_construct();
       $this->setTemplate('template path here');
    }
   /**
     * Retrieve the label used for the tab relating to this block
     *
     * @return string
     */
    public function getTabLabel()
    {
        return $this->__('My Custom Tab');
    }
   /**
     * Retrieve the title used by this tab
     *
     * @return string
     */
    public function getTabTitle()
    {
        return $this->__('Click here to view your custom tab content');
    }
   /**
     * Determines whether to display the tab
     * Add logic here to decide whether you want the tab to display
     *
     * @return bool
     */
    public function canShowTab()
    {
        return true;
    }
    /**
     * Stops the tab being hidden
     *
     * @return bool
     */
    public function isHidden()
    {
        return false;
    }
}

EDIT

add below code in file Customtab_Customeraccount.xml at app/etc/modules/Customtab_Customeraccount.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config>
    <modules>
        <Customtab_CustomerAccount>
            <active>true</active>
            <codePool>local</codePool>
            <depends />
        </Customtab_CustomerAccount>
    </modules>
</config>

You need to change your Action.php below code

public function canShowTab()
        {
            $customer = Mage::registry('current_customer');
            return (bool)$customer->getId();
        }

to:

public function canShowTab()
        {

            return true;
        }

  • The Path is right but Miss to mention : <config> and <module> in Customtab_Customeraccount.xml <br/> Now Tab appears but only when I edit any customer not in add new customer, I want the tab in both.
