Table

Bootstrap table / material design table

Tables allow you to aggregate a huge amount of data and present it in a clear and orderly way.

Bootstrap tables provide additional benefits like responsiveness and the possibility of manipulating the table styles.

You can enhance your tables by adding buttons, checkboxes, panels, and many other additional elements.

You can also use an advanced DataTables options like sort, search or pagination.


If you want to use basic bootstrap tables please take a look at the documentation below.

For more advanced options, please go to the specific documentation pages listed below:


Basic table

Using the most basic table markup, here’s how .table-based tables look in Bootstrap. All table styles are inherited in Bootstrap 4, meaning any nested tables will be styled in the same manner as the parent.

To change a background-color of <thead> (or any other element) use our color classes. If you are going to use a dark background you should also consider white text (to provide a proper contrast) by adding the .text-white class.

Responsive table

Create responsive table by wrapping any .table in .table-responsive to make them scroll horizontally on small devices (under 768px). When viewing on anything larger than 768px wide, you will not see any difference in these tables.

Vertical clipping/truncation

Responsive tables make use of overflow-y: hidden, which clips off any content that goes beyond the bottom or top edges of the table. In particular, this can clip off dropdown menus and other third-party widgets.

Note: For more advanced options of responsive tables have a look at Responsive Tables documentation .
