Button group

Vue Bootstrap 5 Button group component

Group a series of buttons together on a single line with the Vue button group.

Note: Read the API tab to find all available options and advanced customization


Basic example

Wrap a series of buttons with MDBBtn in MDBBtnGroup.


          <template>
            <MDBBtnGroup aria-label="Basic example">
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Left</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Middle</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Right</MDBBtn>
            </MDBBtnGroup>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtnGroup, MDBBtn } from 'mdb-vue-ui-kit';

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBBtnGroup,
                MDBBtn,
              },
            };
          </script>
        

Ensure correct role and provide a label:
In order for assistive technologies (such as screen readers) to convey that a series of buttons is grouped, an appropriate role attribute needs to be provided. For button groups, this would be role="group", while toolbars should have a role="toolbar".
In addition, groups and toolbars should be given an explicit label, as most assistive technologies will otherwise not announce them, despite the presence of the correct role attribute. In the examples provided here, we use aria-label, but alternatives such as aria-labelledby can also be used.

These classes can also be added to links. Use the .active class to highlight a link.


          <template>
            <MDBBtnGroup aria-label="Basic example">
              <MDBBtn tag="a" href="#!" color="primary" class="active">Active link</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn tag="a" href="#!" color="primary">Link</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn tag="a" href="#!" color="primary">Link</MDBBtn>
            </MDBBtnGroup>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtnGroup, MDBBtn } from 'mdb-vue-ui-kit';

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBBtnGroup,
                MDBBtn,
              },
            };
          </script>
        

Outlined styles


          <template>
            <MDBBtnGroup class="shadow-0">
              <MDBBtn outline="secondary">Left</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn outline="secondary">Middle</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn outline="secondary">Right</MDBBtn>
            </MDBBtnGroup>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtnGroup, MDBBtn } from 'mdb-vue-ui-kit';

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBBtnGroup,
                MDBBtn,
              },
            };
          </script>
        

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.


          <template>
            <div class="btn-toolbar" role="toolbar" aria-label="Toolbar with button groups">
              <MDBBtnGroup class="me-2" aria-label="First group">
                <MDBBtn color="primary">1</MDBBtn>
                <MDBBtn color="primary">2</MDBBtn>
                <MDBBtn color="primary">3</MDBBtn>
                <MDBBtn color="primary">4</MDBBtn>
              </MDBBtnGroup>
              <MDBBtnGroup class="me-2" aria-label="Second group">
                <MDBBtn color="primary">5</MDBBtn>
                <MDBBtn color="primary">6</MDBBtn>
                <MDBBtn color="primary">7</MDBBtn>
              </MDBBtnGroup>
              <MDBBtnGroup aria-label="Third group">
                <MDBBtn color="primary">8</MDBBtn>
              </MDBBtnGroup>
            </div>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtnGroup, MDBBtn } from 'mdb-vue-ui-kit';

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBBtnGroup,
                MDBBtn,
              },
            };
          </script>
        

Sizing

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






          <template>
            <!-- Large -->
            <MDBBtnGroup size="lg" aria-label="Basic example">
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Left</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Middle</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Right</MDBBtn>
            </MDBBtnGroup>

            <br />
            <br />

            <!-- Standard -->
            <MDBBtnGroup aria-label="Basic example">
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Left</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Middle</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Right</MDBBtn>
            </MDBBtnGroup>

            <br />
            <br />

            <!-- Small -->
            <MDBBtnGroup size="sm" aria-label="Basic example">
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Left</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Middle</MDBBtn>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">Right</MDBBtn>
            </MDBBtnGroup>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtnGroup, MDBBtn } from 'mdb-vue-ui-kit';

            export default {
              components: {
                MDBBtnGroup,
                MDBBtn,
              },
            };
          </script>
