Topic: MDB react pro Side Menu: SideMenuItem

LRuan free asked 4 years ago


I am trying to implement the SideNav in my application and I am trying to add a non-collapsing side nav menu like the one in the library home page (see attached picture). But I don't see that component anywhere because the <SideNavItem/> component doesn't accept icons as a prop (according to the source code). Please advise.


Another question is, do I have to customize the active css nav item myself? It seems that the <SideNavItem/> doesn't take a prop called "active".

I figured out the answer. For anyone who may have the same encounter now or the future. Thanks! <SideNavItem><i className='fa fa-circle'>&nbsp;</i>Item 1</SideNavItem>

You can also use: "<SideNavItem href="/test-menu"><Fa icon="circle"/>Test Menu</SideNavItem>" instead.

Hi Mikolaj, I am using Pro version under my company's account. I have access to the private GitLab repository. I have already sent you an email with the Order Number and an email that proves I have access to the MDB Pro Components. Referencing back to my original post, This is the component I am working with: I am checking the PropTypes for SideMenuItem from the PRO component. As you can see, it does't accept a prop called "icon" like the SideNavCat component. This is how the side menu looks like with the code: Can you please advise? I wanted to make sure that non-caret side menu item (with icon) is actually is not in the PRO/free component or that I am missing something here? Thanks
