API documentation for the React Tab component. Learn about the available props, and the CSS API.


import Tab from '@material-ui/core/Tab';
// or
import { Tab } from '@material-ui/core';
You can learn about the difference by reading this guide on minimizing bundle size.

Component name

The name MuiTab can be used when providing default props or style overrides in the theme.


childrenunsupportedPropThis prop isn't supported. Use the component prop if you need to change the children structure.
classesobjectOverride or extend the styles applied to the component. See CSS API below for more details.
disabledboolfalseIf true, the component is disabled.
disableFocusRippleboolfalseIf true, the keyboard focus ripple is disabled.
disableRippleboolfalseIf true, the ripple effect is disabled.
⚠️ Without a ripple there is no styling for :focus-visible by default. Be sure to highlight the element by applying separate styles with the .Mui-focusedVisible class.
| string
The icon to display.
labelnodeThe label element.
valueanyYou can provide your own value. Otherwise, we fallback to the child position index.
wrappedboolfalseTab labels appear in a single row. They can use a second line if needed.

The ref is forwarded to the root element.
Any other props supplied will be provided to the root element (ButtonBase).


While not explicitly documented above, the props of the ButtonBase component are also available on Tab. You can take advantage of this to target nested components.
