Ripple

Vue Bootstrap 5 Ripple

The ripple directive provides a radial action in the form of a visual ripple expanding outward from the user’s touch. Ripple is a visual form of feedback for touch events providing users a clear signal that an element is being touched.

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


Basic example

By default, ripple is added to every MDBBtn component and it does not require any additional classes or attributes.


          <template>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg">Primary</MDBBtn>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtn } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";

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

A directive can be added to any element. Thanks to this you can use it to apply the ripple effect to the given clickable element - for example to the image wrapped in <a> element.

example

          <template>
            <a v-mdb-ripple>
              <img alt="example" class="img-fluid rounded" src="https://mdbootstrap.com/img/new/standard/city/043.jpg" />
            </a>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { mdbRipple } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";

            export default {
              directives: {
                mdbRipple
              }
            };
          </script>
        

Colors

By using color key you can change the color of the ripple.

You can use the colors from basic MDB palette, for example color: "primary" or color: "danger".


          <template>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'primary' }">Primary</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'secondary' }">Secondary</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'success' }">Success</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'danger' }">Danger</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'warning' }">Warning</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'info' }">Info</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="dark" :ripple="{ color: 'light' }">Light</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'dark' }">Dark</MDBBtn>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtn } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";

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

You can also use any CSS color name:


          <template>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'red' }">Red</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'green' }">Green</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'blue' }">Blue</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'yellow' }">Yellow</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'orange' }">Orange</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'purple' }">Purple</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: 'aqua' }">Aqua</MDBBtn>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtn } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";

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

Or simply use the hex color code:


          <template>
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: '#c953d6' }"
              >#c953d6</MDBBtn
            >
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: '#44c6e3' }"
              >#44c6e3</MDBBtn
            >
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: '#fcc834' }"
              >#fcc834</MDBBtn
            >
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: '#386f06' }"
              >#386f06</MDBBtn
            >
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: '#c1303a' }"
              >#c1303a</MDBBtn
            >
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: '#a57c3e' }"
              >#a57c3e</MDBBtn
            >
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: '#192ced' }"
              >#192ced</MDBBtn
            >
            <MDBBtn color="light" :ripple="{ color: '#525740' }"
              >#525740</MDBBtn
            >
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtn } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";

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

Duration

By using duration key you can modify the duration of the ripple (in milliseconds).


          <template>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg">Default (500ms)</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg" :ripple="{ duration: 1000 }">Duration 1s</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg" :ripple="{ duration: 3000 }">Duration 3s</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg" :ripple="{ duration: 5000 }">Duration 5s</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg" :ripple="{ duration: 10000 }">Duration 10s</MDBBtn>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtn } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";

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

Centered

If you set centered key to true, the ripple will always start in the middle of an element.


          <template>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg" :ripple="{ centered: true }">Centered ripple</MDBBtn>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtn } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";

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

Unbound

If you set unbound key to true, the ripple won't be bonded to the given element and it will exceed its borders.


          <template>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" :ripple="{ unbound: true, color: 'dark' }">Unbound</MDBBtn>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtn } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";

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

Radius

By using radius key you can modify the radius of the ripple. The numeric value is expressed in pixels, for example: radius: 10.


          <template>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg">Default</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg" :ripple="{ radius: 10 }">10</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg" :ripple="{ radius: 25 }">25</MDBBtn>
            <MDBBtn color="primary" size="lg" :ripple="{ radius: 50 }">50</MDBBtn>
          </template>
        

          <script>
            import { MDBBtn } from "mdb-vue-ui-kit";

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

Examples

You can apply the ripple directive to any element. Options can be passed as an object, for example: v-mdb-ripple="{ color: 'secondary', centered: true }".
