Switch

Bootstrap switch

Bootstrap switch is a simple component used for activating one of two predefined options. Commonly used as an on/off button.

It's mostly used in a number of various forms since they are dead simple to use and cut the time one needs to fill all the inputs.

Examples of Bootstrap switch use:

  • Forms
  • On/Off Functionality
  • Preference choice

Material Design styling for Bootstrap Switch component



            <!-- Material switch -->
            <div class="switch">
              <label>
                Off
                <input type="checkbox">
                <span class="lever"></span> On
              </label>
            </div>

          

Checked state

Add checked attribute to the <input> element to pre-select switch when the page loads.

The checked attribute is a boolean attribute.

Default switch



            <!-- Default checked -->
            <label class="bs-switch">
              <input type="checkbox" checked>
              <span class="slider round"></span>
            </label>

          

Material switch MDB Pro component



            <!-- Material checked -->
            <div class="switch">
              <label>
                Off
                <input type="checkbox" checked>
                <span class="lever"></span> On
              </label>
            </div>

          

Disabled state

Add the disabled boolean attribute to the <input> and the custom indicator and label description will be automatically styled and blocked.

A disabled <input> element is unusable and un-clickable.

Default switch



            <!-- Default disabled -->
            <label class="bs-switch">
              <input type="checkbox" disabled>
              <span class="slider round"></span>
            </label>

    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
