View/Tab - The Toolbar And href

I have the index.html and two other views. In the tabbar I have 3 a hrefs - and these work.
When I use a route in the < a href - it does navigate to the view – but – the tab indicator does not move.

When I switch from using a route - and use <a href= ‘#MyView’ - the tab indicator does highlight the selected tab/view.

How can I geT the tab indicator to highlight the correct tab when using a route in the tabbar?
