Aww yeah, Material-UI v4 is here!

MenuItem API

The API documentation of the MenuItem React component. Learn more about the properties and the CSS customization points.

import MenuItem from '@material-ui/core/MenuItem';


Name Type Default Description
children node Menu item contents.
classes object Override or extend the styles applied to the component. See CSS API below for more details.
component Component 'li' The component used for the root node. Either a string to use a DOM element or a component.
disableGutters bool false If true, the left and right padding is removed.

Any other properties supplied will be spread to the root element (ListItem).


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.
gutters Styles applied to the root element if disableGutters={false}.
selected Styles applied to the root element if selected={true}.

Have a look at overriding 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: MuiMenuItem.


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