Grid examples

Bootstrap grid examples

Here are some basic grid layouts to get you familiar with building with the Bootstrap grid system.


Five grid tiers

There are five tiers to the Bootstrap grid system, one for each range of devices we support. Each tier starts at a minimum viewport size and automatically applies to the larger devices unless overridden.

        </div>

          <div class="col-sm-4">.col-sm-4</div>
          <div class="col-sm-4">.col-sm-4</div>
          <div class="col-sm-4">.col-sm-4</div>
        </div>

        <div class="row">
          <div class="col-md-4">.col-md-4</div>
          <div class="col-md-4">.col-md-4</div>
          <div class="col-md-4">.col-md-4</div>
        </div>

        <div class="row">
          <div class="col-lg-4">.col-lg-4</div>
          <div class="col-lg-4">.col-lg-4</div>
          <div class="col-lg-4">.col-lg-4</div>
        </div>

        <div class="row">
          <div class="col-xl-4">.col-xl-4</div>
          <div class="col-xl-4">.col-xl-4</div>
          <div class="col-xl-4">.col-xl-4</div>
        </div>
      </div>
      

Three equal columns

You can have three equal-width columns starting at desktops and scaling to large desktops. On mobile devices, tablets and smaller, the columns will automatically stack.

.col-md-4
.col-md-4
.col-md-4

        <div class="container">
          <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-4">.col-md-4</div>
            <div class="col-md-4">.col-md-4</div>
            <div class="col-md-4">.col-md-4</div>
          </div>
        </div>
      

Three unequal columns

You can also have three columns starting at desktops and scaling to large desktops of various widths. Remember, grid columns should add up to twelve for a single horizontal block. More than that — then columns start stacking no matter the viewport.

.col-md-3
.col-md-6
.col-md-3

        <div class="container">
          <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-3">.col-md-3</div>
            <div class="col-md-6">.col-md-6</div>
            <div class="col-md-3">.col-md-3</div>
          </div>
        </div>
      

Two columns

Get two columns starting at desktops and scaling to large desktops.

.col-md-8
.col-md-4

        <div class="container">
          <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-8">.col-md-8</div>
            <div class="col-md-4">.col-md-4</div>
          </div>
        </div>
      

Full width, single column

No grid classes are necessary for full-width elements.

Two columns with two nested columns

As in the documentation, nesting is easy — just put a row of columns within an existing column. This gives you two columns starting at desktops and scaling to large desktops, with another two (equal widths) within the larger column.

At mobile device sizes, tablets and down, these columns and their nested columns will stack.
.col-md-8
.col-md-6
.col-md-6
.col-md-4

        <div class="container">
          <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-8">
              .col-md-8
              <div class="row">
                <div class="col-md-6">.col-md-6</div>
                <div class="col-md-6">.col-md-6</div>
              </div>
            </div>
            <div class="col-md-4">.col-md-4</div>
          </div>
        </div>
      

Mixed: mobile and desktop

The Bootstrap v4 grid system has five tiers of classes: xs (extra small), sm (small), md (medium), lg (large), and xl (extra large). You can use nearly any combination of these classes to create more dynamic and flexible layouts.

Each tier of classes scales up, meaning if you plan on setting the same widths for xs and sm, you only need to specify xs.

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
