Mobile Angular UI - Activelinks


Advertisements

To make use of activelinks from mobile angular core module add, mobile-angular-ui.core.activeLinks as a dependency. The example is as follows −

angular.module('myFirstApp', ['mobile-angular-ui.core.activeLinks']);

The class .active is added to the <a> tag whose href matches the current location.For <a> tag with href you should always see the .active class added. It is added/removed when the $locationChangeSuccess or $includeContentLoaded is fired.

For example, consider the following app −

Core Details

The text: Welcome to TutorialsPoint, comes from home/home.html.

<div class="list-group text-center">
   list-group-item-home">
      <h1>{{msg}}</h1>
   </div>
</div>

The details of the variable msg, and also adding home/home.html contents is available in app.js −

'use strict';

//
// Here is how to define your module
// has dependent on mobile-angular-ui
//
var app=angular.module(
   'myFirstApp', [
      'ngRoute',
      'mobile-angular-ui',
      'mobile-angular-ui.gestures',
   ]
);
app.config(function($routeProvider, $locationProvider) {
   $routeProvider
   .when("/", {
      templateUrl : "src/home/home.html"
   });
   $locationProvider.html5Mode({enabled:true, requireBase:false});
});
app.controller('MainController', function($rootScope, $scope, $routeParams) {
   $scope.msg="Welcome to TutorialsPoint!";
});

The templateUrl, is replaced with src/home/home.html when the location starts with /. Inside index.html we have a sidebar where the menu is added −
