Leading dots with right indent tab in InDesign TOC


Question

I have a table of content that currently looks like this:

However, I am trying to add leading dots between the title and the corresponding page number. Here's what my Table of Contents... dialog looks like:

But I'm not sure where to define that leading dot. I tried adding a dot in the Between Entry and Page Number field but it didn't help. Any idea?

Update: On Scott's recommendation below, I tried adding the "dot" character to the Tabs dialog of the Paragraph Style option but it didn't yield any difference. This is what I did:

Add the leaders to the tabs Not in the TOC dialog, in the Style dialog.

In the table of contents set-up, you've got ^y instead of ^t in the "Between Entry and Number" field. I don't know if this is your only problem, but the Indesign Reference Manual (updated as of June 15, 2015) suggests this.
