Table responsive

Bootstrap table responsive

Responsive tables allow tables to be scrolled horizontally with ease. Make any table responsive across all viewports by wrapping a .table with .table-responsive. Or, pick a maximum breakpoint with which to have a responsive table up to by using .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl}.

Vertical clipping/truncation

Responsive tables make use of overflow-y: hidden, which clips off any content that goes beyond the bottom or top edges of the table. In particular, this can clip off dropdown menus and other third-party widgets.


Always responsive

Across every breakpoint, use .table-responsive for horizontally scrolling tables.

Breakpoint specific

Use .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl} as needed to create responsive tables up to a particular breakpoint. From that breakpoint and up, the table will behave normally and not scroll horizontally.

Bootstrap table column width

Use one of the following classes to manipulate the width of the columns.

Table columns with auto width

Add .w-auto class to the table element to set an auto width to the table column.

The width of the columns will automatically adjust to the content of the column. That means it will always take a minimum width required to present its content.

Table columns with minimal width

Use .th-lg or .th-sm class to set a minimal width of a table column. .th-lg class gives 9 rem of the minimal width of the column and .th-sm class gives 6 rem.

You have to add .th-lg or th.sm class to the <th> element within the <thead>.

Resize the browser window to see the effect.

.th-lg - 9 rem minimal width of the column

Map of dependencies of SCSS files in MDBootstrap:


    Legend:

    '-->' means 'required'

    All free and pro files require files from 'core' catalog

    'none' means 'this component doesn't require anything except core files'

    A file wrapped by `< >` means that this file make the base component prettier but it isn't necessary for the proper working

    All PRO components require 'pro/_variables.scss' file
