Topic: How I can select a specific tab according to page url in MDB5 standard?

Otabek Sadiridinov free asked 3 years ago

Expected behavior: Open a tab according to the hash comes after page address url.

For instance: And it just should open the tab with v-how-to-tab id.

Actual behavior: Now it just opens the first or the .active class tab.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.): Just, I have no any screenshots....

By default, this option is not supported. You need to add extra js code to handle this. Use window.location.hash for this purpose. You can do it like this:

if (location.hash === "#my-hash") {
  const triggerEl = document.querySelector('a[href="#my-hash"]');

  if (triggerEl) {
    let instance = mdb.Tab.getInstance(triggerEl)

    if (!instance) {
      instance = new mdb.Tab(triggerEl);

Please insert min. 20 characters.
