NavLink ListItems not Applying activeClassName class when Clicked On – ReactJS React-Router MaterialUI

Hi everyone,

A bit of a hairy issue I ran into today that took a while to track down. I’m using React Router with Material UI to render a Drawer as a sidebar:

The issue was that some links were not applying the expected activeclass:


	
		
	
	<ListItemText primary={
		
			About
		
	} />

After trawling through react-router I eventually found a post on github that mentioned a similar issue: https://github.com/ReactTraining/react-router/issues/4638

The solution turned out to be wrapping all relevant components with withrouter.
