Define the data for props tabs, currentTab, and method for onClick callback

export default {
  components: {
    Tabs,
  },
  data: () => ({
    tabs: [
      { title: 'Tab 1', value: 'tab1' },
      { title: 'Tab 2', value: 'tab2' },
      { title: 'Tab 3', value: 'tab3', }
    ],
    currentTab: 'tab1',
  }),
  methods: {
    handleClick(newTab) {
      this.currentTab = newTab;
    },
  },
}
</script>

here's the HTML structure generated from the data entered:

  <nav class="tabs">
    <button class="tabs__item tabs__item_active"> Tab 1 </button> <!-- active tab -->
    <button class="tabs__item"> Tab 2 </button>
    <button class="tabs__item"> Tab 3 </button>

    <div class="tabs__active-line"></div>
  </nav>

Finally, add some styles for component elements:

  • .tabs - component wrapper
  • .tabs__item - button
  • .tabs__item_active - active button
  • .tabs__active-line - bottom line

Be sure to add position: relative; for .tabs class

and position: absolute; with bottom, left, height, background-color properties for .tabs__active-line class
