navbar highlights

hi, ive gotten adding tabs to my navbar working using

however im not sure how to go about making the tab stay highlighted when its the active tab.

class XenForo_myCustoms_myTabs

    public static function addNavbarTab(array &$extraTabs, $selectedTabId)
        $extraTabs['irc'] = array(
            'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('myNavBar_irc_title'),
            'href'  => XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('pages/irc'),
        'selected'  =>  ($selectedTabId == 'irc'),
            'linksTemplate' => 'myNavBar_irc_title',    
            'position'  =>  'middle'
thats my class

ive made a new listener which works fine also, the tabs all work, its just they dont stay highlighted when i click them
