Display property

Bootstrap display property

Note: This documentation is for an older version of Bootstrap (v.4). A newer version is available for Bootstrap 5. We recommend migrating to the latest version of our product - Material Design for Bootstrap 5.
Go to docs v.5

Quickly and responsively toggle the display value of components and more with our display utilities. They include support for some of the more common values, as well as some extras for controlling display when printing.

How it works

Simply change the value of the display property with our responsive display utility classes. We purposely support only a subset of all possible values for display. Classes can be combined for various effects as you need.


Display utility classes that apply to all breakpoints, from xs to xl, have no breakpoint or an abbreviation in them. This is because those classes are applied from min-width: 0; and up, and thus are not bound by a media query. The remaining breakpoints, however, do include a breakpoint abbreviation.

As such, the classes are named using the format:

  • .d-{value} for xs
  • .d-{breakpoint}-{value} for sm, md, lg and xl.

Where the value is one of:

  • none
  • inline
  • inline-block
  • block
  • table
  • table-cell
  • table-row
  • flex
  • inline-flex

The media queries effect screen widths with the given breakpoint or larger. For example, .d-lg-none sets display: none; on both lg and xl screens.


Put the above to use by applying any of the classes to an element of your choice. For example, here’s how you could use the inline, block, or inline-block utilities (the same applies to the other classes).


            <div class="d-inline p-2 bg-primary text-white">Inline</div>
            <div class="d-inline p-2 bg-dark  text-white">Inline</div>


            <span class="d-block p-2 bg-primary text-white">Block</span>
            <span class="d-block p-2 bg-dark text-white">Block</span>

              Strap that boot!


Responsive templates

The most common usages of hidden utilities in the responsive web design.

Hidden on the screens smaller than
sm down (<576px) .d-none .d-sm-block
md down (<768p) .d-none .d-md-block
lg down (<992p) .d-none .d-lg-block
xl down (<1200px) .d-none .d-xl-block
Hidden on the screens wider than
sm up (>576px) .d-block .d-sm-none
md up (>768p) .d-block .d-md-none
lg up (>992p) .d-block .d-lg-none
xl up (>1200px) .d-block .d-xl-none

Hiding elements

For faster mobile-friendly development, you may use responsive display classes for showing and hiding elements by device. Avoid creating entirely different versions of the same site, but instead hide each element responsively for each screen size.

To hide elements simply use the .d-none class or one of the .d-{sm,md,lg,xl}-none classes for any responsive screen variation.

To show an element only on a given interval of screen sizes you can combine one .d-*-none class with a .d-*-* class. For example, .d-none .d-md-block .d-xl-none will hide the element for all screen sizes except on medium and large devices.

Screen Size Class
Hidden on all .d-none
Hidden only on xs .d-none .d-sm-block
Hidden only on sm .d-sm-none .d-md-block
Hidden only on md .d-md-none .d-lg-block
Hidden only on lg .d-lg-none .d-xl-block
Hidden only on xl .d-xl-none
Visible on all .d-block
Visible only on xs .d-block .d-sm-none
Visible only on sm .d-none .d-sm-block .d-md-none
Visible only on md d-none .d-md-block .d-lg-none
Visible only on lg .d-none .d-lg-block .d-xl-none
Visible only on xl .d-none .d-xl-block
hide on screens wider than lg
hide on screens smaller than lg

        <div class="d-lg-none">hide on screens wider than lg</div>
        <div class="d-none d-lg-block">hide on screens smaller than lg</div>


Display in print

You can change the display value of elements when printing with our print display utility classes. They include support for the same display values as our responsive .d-* utilities.

  • .d-print-none
  • .d-print-inline
  • .d-print-inline-block
  • .d-print-block
  • .d-print-table
  • .d-print-table-row
  • .d-print-table-cell
  • .d-print-flex
  • .d-print-inline-flex

The print and display classes can be combined.

Screen Only (Hide on print only)
Print Only (Hide on screen only)
Hide up to large on screen, but always show on print

        <div class="d-print-none">Screen Only (Hide on print only)</div>
        <div class="d-none d-print-block">Print Only (Hide on screen only)</div>
        <div class="d-none d-lg-block d-print-block">Hide up to large on screen, but always show on print</div>
