Component name

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


Props of the ButtonBase component are also available.

This prop isn't supported. Use the component prop if you need to change the children structure.
Override or extend the styles applied to the component. See CSS API below for more details.
If true, the component is disabled.
If true, the keyboard focus ripple is disabled.
If 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-focusVisible class.
| string
The icon to display.
| 'end'
| 'start'
| 'top'
The position of the icon relative to the label.
The label element.
| object
The system prop that allows defining system overrides as well as additional CSS styles. See the `sx` page for more details.
You can provide your own value. Otherwise, we fallback to the child position index.
Tab labels appear in a single row. They can use a second line if needed.

The ref is forwarded to the root element.


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.
