Hello, I am trying to automatically highlight parent menu item defined with route name.
My ability to explain problem verbally is bad, so I attach my code for better understanding.

My routes:

      path: '/parent',
      name: 'parent',
      component: Parent,
      children: [
          path: '/child',
          name: 'parent.child',
          component: Child

My router link in menu:

<router-link :to="{ name: 'parent' }">Parent</router-link>

Is it possible to highlight this menu item when the current route is parent.child? For example: <router-link :to="{ name: 'parent*' }">Parent</router-link> does not work and item will not be highlighted at all.

I would rather not write route paths because I will be adding localised routes later on and it will stop working for another languages. Thanks
