Chips represent complex entities in small blocks, such as a contact.


Name Type Default Description
avatar element   Avatar element.
children unsupportedProp   This property isn't supported. Use the component property if you need to change the children structure.
classes object   Override or extend the styles applied to the component. See CSS API below for more details.
clickable bool false If true, the chip will appear clickable, and will raise when pressed, even if the onClick property is not defined. This can be used, for example, along with the component property to indicate an anchor Chip is clickable.
component union: string |
 func |
'div' The component used for the root node. Either a string to use a DOM element or a component.
deleteIcon element   Override the default delete icon element. Shown only if onDelete is set.
label node   The content of the label.
onDelete func   Callback function fired when the delete icon is clicked. If set, the delete icon will be shown.

Any other properties supplied will be spread to the root element (native element).


You can override all the class names injected by Material-UI thanks to the classes property. This property accepts the following keys:

  • root
  • clickable
  • deletable
  • avatar
  • avatarChildren
  • label
  • deleteIcon

Have a look at overriding with classes section and the implementation of the component for more detail.

If using the overrides key of the theme as documented here, you need to use the following style sheet name: MuiChip.
