Set default tab

yorkmyers priority asked 2 weeks ago

Is it possible to set the default tab to not be the first one, using standard (vanilla) JavaScript?

I found this page, but it's only for Angular

I'm able to programmatically change the tab upon page load with this code:

<script type="text/javascript">     
    $(function() {
        const triggerEl = document.querySelector('#mytabs a[href="#specific-tab"]');
        mdb.Tab.getInstance(triggerEl).show(); // Select tab by name
    });
</script>

However the screen briefly flashes the contents of the first tab.

I also tried changing the placement of the "active" class in the LI, but that only changes the tab selected and not the contents.

Thank you!

You need to change the active state for the tab and for content. Example snippet: https://mdbootstrap.com/snippets/standard/kpienkowska/4221547
