I can't figure it out how to add links dynamically to customer navigation.

this is my xml:

<referenceBlock name="customer_account_navigation">
   <block class="Vendor\Module\Block\Custom\Link\" name="block">
       <action method="addCustomLink">
        <!--  HERE DYNAMICALLY NEEDS TO ADD ARGUMENTS e.g label, path etc..-->


class Link extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Link\Current
  public function addCustomLink() 
    $parent = $this->getParentBlock();

                'Dynamic Label goes here',
                'Dynamic Url goes here',
                'Dynamic title goes here'

This is giving me error: Invalid method Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Navigation::addLink .

Anybody have any suggestion how could one do this?

Thanks in advance.

In app/code/VENDOR/MODULE/view/frontend/layout/customer_account.xml you can add following line:

<referenceBlock name="customer_account_navigation">
            <block class="Vendor\Module\Block\Custom\Link"
                    <argument name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">DYNAMIC TEXT NED TO DISPLAY</argument>
                    <argument name="path" xsi:type="string">DYNAMIC YOUR_PATH_URL(like: customer/account ) </argument>
                    <argument name="sortOrder" xsi:type="number">240</argument>



namespace Vendor\Module\Block\Custom;

class Link extends \Magento\Customer\Block\Account\Link
    public function setPath($path)

    public function setLabel($label)
 * you can directly change href also like this;
 * if you use getHref() then setPath() will be ignored
 * @return string
 public function getHref()
    return 'https://www.google.com/';


It should work.
