Stretched link

Bootstrap Stretched link

Make any VUE component or HTML element clickable by “stretching” a nested link via CSS.


Card with stretched link

Use mdb-stretched-link and make its containing block clickable. In most cases, this means that an element with position: relative; that contains a mdb-stretched-link will be clickable.

Cards have position: relative; by default, so in this case you can safely nest the mdb-stretched-link without any other changes.

Multiple stretched links and tap targets within the same containing block are not recommended.

Some quick example text to build on the card title and make up the bulk of the card's content.

                <mdb-card-text>Some quick example text to build on the card title and make up the bulk of the card's content.</mdb-card-text>

            </mdb-card>
          </mdb-col>
        </mdb-container>
      

        <script>
          import { mdbContainer, mdbCard, mdbCardImage, mdbCardBody, mdbCardTitle, mdbCardText, mdbStretchedLink, mdbCol } from 'mdbvue';
          export default {
            name: 'StretchedLinkPage',
            components: {
              mdbContainer,
              mdbCol,
              mdbCard,
              mdbCardImage,
              mdbCardBody,
              mdbCardTitle,
              mdbCardText,
              mdbStretchedLink
            }
          };
        </script>
      

Media with stretched link

Media objects do not have position: relative by default, so we need to add the .position-relative here to prevent the link from stretching outside the media object.

            <mdb-stretched-link href="#!" class="stretched-link">Go somewhere</mdb-stretched-link>
          </mdb-media>
        </template>
      

        <script>
          import { mdbStretchedLink, mdbMedia, mdbMediaImage, mdbMediaBody } from 'mdbvue';
          export default {
            name: 'StretchedLinkPage',
            components: {
              mdbStretchedLink,
              mdbMedia,
              mdbMediaImage,
              mdbMediaBody, 
              mdbIcon
            }
          };
        </script>
      

Columns with stretched link

Columns' position is "relative" by default, so to make a column clickable, it's enough to nest mdb-stretched-link within. However, stretching a link over an entire .row would require .position-static on the column and .position-relative on the row.

          import { mdbStretchedLink, mdbCol, mdbRow } from 'mdbvue';
          export default {
            name: 'StretchedLinkPage',
            components: {
              mdbCol,
              mdbRow,
              mdbStretchedLink,
            }
          };
        </script>
      

Identifying the containing block

If the stretched link doesn’t seem to work, the containing block will probably be the cause. The following CSS properties will make an element the containing block:

  • A position value other than static
  • A transform or perspective value other than none
  • A will-change value of transform or perspective
  • A filter value other than none or a will-change value of filter (only works on Firefox)
