wrapped bool false Tab labels appear in a single row. They can use a second line if needed.

The ref is forwarded to the root element.

Any other properties supplied will be provided to the root element (ButtonBase).

CSS

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

Name Description
root Styles applied to the root element.
labelIcon Styles applied to the root element if both icon and label are provided.
textColorInherit Styles applied to the root element if the parent Tabs has textColor="inherit".
textColorPrimary Styles applied to the root element if the parent Tabs has textColor="primary".
textColorSecondary Styles applied to the root element if the parent Tabs has textColor="secondary".
selected Pseudo-class applied to the root element if selected={true} (controlled by the Tabs component).
disabled Pseudo-class applied to the root element if disabled={true} (controlled by the Tabs component).
fullWidth Styles applied to the root element if fullWidth={true} (controlled by the Tabs component).
wrapped Styles applied to the root element if wrapped={true}.
wrapper Styles applied to the icon and label's wrapper element.

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

If using the overrides key of the theme, you need to use the following style sheet name: MuiTab.

Inheritance

The properties of the ButtonBase component are also available. You can take advantage of this behavior to target nested components.

Notes

The component can cause issues in StrictMode.
