SidebarNavHelper.isActive should check child items for dropdowns

See original GitHub issue


I have a case when urls of child items do not start with the same path as parent’s url. In this scenario item selection is not working as expected. So, is it possible to change SidebarNavHelper.isActive to something like this:

public isActive(router, item) {
    const url = item.url;
    if (this.itemType(item) === 'dropdown') {
      if (url === '' || url === '#') {
        return item.children.some((childItem: any) => this.isActive(router, childItem));
      } else {
        return router.isActive(url, false);
    } else {
      return router.isActive(url, true);

v2.7.4 adds SidebarNavHelper to the public-api surface, you can safely:

  • import
import { SidebarNavHelper } from '@coreui/angular';
  • extend
export class AppSidebarNavHelper extends SidebarNavHelper {

This feature will be available as an option in the upcoming CoreUI v3 for Angular.
