Button toolbar

Combine sets of button groups into button toolbars for more complex components. Use utility classes as needed to space out groups, buttons, and more.

<div class="btn-toolbar" role="toolbar" aria-label="Toolbar with button groups">
  <div class="btn-group mr-2" role="group" aria-label="First group">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">1</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">2</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">3</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">4</button>
  </div>
  <div class="btn-group mr-2" role="group" aria-label="Second group">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">5</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">6</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">7</button>
  </div>
  <div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="Third group">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">8</button>
  </div>
</div>

Feel free to mix input groups with button groups in your toolbars. Similar to the example above, you’ll likely need some utilities though to space things properly.

<div class="btn-toolbar mb-3" role="toolbar" aria-label="Toolbar with button groups">
  <div class="btn-group mr-2" role="group" aria-label="First group">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">1</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">2</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">3</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">4</button>
  </div>
  <div class="input-group">
    <div class="input-group-prepend">
      <div class="input-group-text" id="btnGroupAddon">@</div>
    </div>
    <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Input group example" aria-label="Input group example" aria-describedby="btnGroupAddon">
  </div>
</div>

<div class="btn-toolbar justify-content-between" role="toolbar" aria-label="Toolbar with button groups">
  <div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="First group">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">1</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">2</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">3</button>
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">4</button>
  </div>
  <div class="input-group">
    <div class="input-group-prepend">
      <div class="input-group-text" id="btnGroupAddon2">@</div>
    </div>
    <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Input group example" aria-label="Input group example" aria-describedby="btnGroupAddon2">
  </div>
</div>

Sizing

Instead of applying button sizing classes to every button in a group, just add .btn-group-* to each .btn-group, including each one when nesting multiple groups.



<div class="btn-group btn-group-lg" role="group" aria-label="...">...</div>
<div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="...">...</div>
<div class="btn-group btn-group-sm" role="group" aria-label="...">...</div>

Nesting

Place a .btn-group within another .btn-group when you want dropdown menus mixed with a series of buttons.

<div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="Button group with nested dropdown">
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">1</button>
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-dark">2</button>

  <div class="btn-group" role="group">
    <button id="btnGroupDrop1" type="button" class="btn btn-dark dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">
      Dropdown
    </button>
    <div class="dropdown-menu" aria-labelledby="btnGroupDrop1">
      <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Dropdown link</a>
      <a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Dropdown link</a>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

Vertical variation

Make a set of buttons appear vertically stacked rather than horizontally. Split button dropdowns are not supported here.

<div class="btn-group-vertical">
  ...
</div>
