There is a working example below - but in order to use those functionalities you need to update your MDB Vue version - watcher for active prop has been added quite recently. Best regards, Magdalena


      @activeTab="active = $event"
      :links="[{ text: 'Home' }, { text: 'Profile' }, { text: 'Contact' }]"

Hey Magdelena,I have tried to switch the current tab index as it described in the API and it is still not working. I have added some code:

      <mdb-tabs  :active="active"
          { text: 'Active' },
          { text: 'Dropdown', dropdown: true, dropdownItems: [{ text: 'Action' }, { text: 'Another action' }, { text: 'Something else here' }, { divider: true }, { text: 'Separeted link'}]},
          { text: 'Link' },
          { text: 'Disabled', disabled: true } ]"
<button @click="prevTab()">prev</button>
<button @click="nextTab()">next</button>
        active = 0; 
        prevTab() {

         nextTab() { 

once I click the prev/next the tab is not changed.This is a blocker for our development. can you help me?

Magdalena Dembna staff answered 4 years ago Everything is described in the API tab - you can control the active tab with active property and each time the value is been changed by user, the @activeTab event is emitted with the current value. Kind regards, Magdalena
