React Bootstrap Tags, Labels & Badges

React Tags, Labels & Badges - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

React Bootstrap tags are components which separate content placed in the same wrapper, but in the separate pane. Only one pane can be displayed at the time.

Their main goal is to provide your visitors with an intuitive way of getting what they want. Just consider, how convenient it is to find all the articles related to web development just by using web development tag.


Basic example

Badges scale to match the size of the immediate parent element by using relative font sizing and em units.

Example heading New
Example heading New
Example heading New
Example heading New
Example heading New
Example heading New


        import React from "react";
        import { MDBBadge, MDBContainer } from "mdbreact";

        const BadgePage = props => {
        return (
        <MDBContainer>
          <h1>This is the first heading <MDBBadge color="primary">New</MDBBadge>
          </h1>
          <h2>This is the second heading <MDBBadge color="primary">New</MDBBadge>
          </h2>
          <h3>This is the third heading <MDBBadge color="primary">New</MDBBadge>
          </h3>
          <h4>This is the fourth heading <MDBBadge color="primary">New</MDBBadge>
          </h4>
          <h5>This is the fifth heading <MDBBadge color="primary">New</MDBBadge>
          </h5>
          <h6>This is the sixth heading <MDBBadge color="primary">New</MDBBadge>
          </h6>
        </MDBContainer>
        );
        };

        export default BadgePage;
      

Badges can be used as part of links or buttons to provide a counter.


        import React from "react";
        import { MDBBadge, MDBContainer, MDBBtn } from "mdbreact";

        const BadgePage = props => {
          return (
            <MDBContainer>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">
                Notifications <MDBBadge color="danger" className="ml-2">4</MDBBadge>
              </MDBBtn>
            </MDBContainer>
          );
        };

        export default BadgePage;
      

Note that depending on how they are used, badges may be confusing for users of screen readers and similar assistive technologies. While the styling of badges provides a visual cue as to their purpose, these users will simply be presented with the content of the badge. Depending on the specific situation, these badges may seem like random additional words or numbers at the end of a sentence, link, or button.

Unless the context is clear (as with the “Notifications” example, where it is understood that the “4” is the number of notifications), consider including additional context with a visually hidden piece of additional text.


        import React from "react";
        import { MDBBadge, MDBContainer, MDBBtn } from "mdbreact";

        const BadgePage = props => {
          return (
            <MDBContainer>
              <MDBBtn color="primary">
                Profile <MDBBadge color="danger" className="ml-2">9</MDBBadge>
                <span className="sr-only">unread messages</span>
              </MDBBtn>
            </MDBContainer>
          );
        };

        export default BadgePage;
      

Contextual variations

Add any of the below mentioned modifier classes to change the appearance of a badge.

Default Primary Secondary Success Danger Warning Info Light Dark

        import React from "react";
        import { MDBBadge, MDBContainer } from "mdbreact";

        const BadgePage = props => {
          return (
            <MDBContainer>
              <MDBBadge color="default">Default</MDBBadge>
              <MDBBadge color="primary">Primary</MDBBadge>
              <MDBBadge color="success">Success</MDBBadge>
              <MDBBadge color="info">Info</MDBBadge>
              <MDBBadge color="warning">Warning</MDBBadge>
              <MDBBadge color="danger">Danger</MDBBadge>
              <MDBBadge color="light">Light</MDBBadge>
              <MDBBadge color="dark">Dark</MDBBadge>
            </MDBContainer>
          );
        };

        export default BadgePage;
      

Conveying meaning to assistive technologies

Using color to add meaning only provides a visual indication, which will not be conveyed to users of assistive technologies – such as screen readers. Ensure that information denoted by the color is either obvious from the content itself (e.g. the visible text), or is included through alternative means, such as additional text hidden with the .sr-only class.


Pill badges

Use the pill prop to make badges more rounded (with a larger border-radius and additional horizontal padding).

        import React from "react";
        import { MDBBadge, MDBContainer } from "mdbreact";

        const BadgePage = props => {
          return (
            <MDBContainer>
              <MDBBadge pill color="default">Default</MDBBadge>

Chip input MDB Pro component

Adding tags

Chip input is a component that helps to style and render collections of strings. It accepts placeholder String prop, that gets replaced with secondaryPlaceholder, if present after there is a chip in already. Try adding tags by hitting Enter and deleting them by pressing X.


          import React from "react";
          import { MDBChipsInput } from "mdbreact";

          class ChipsInputPage extends React.Component {


          render() {
            return (
              <div>
                <MDBChipsInput placeholder="+Tag" secondaryPlaceholder="Enter a tag" />
              </div>
              )
            }
          }

          export default ChipsInputPage;
        

Setting initial tags

Chip input can use chips Array prop to render predefined tags.


          import React from "react";
          import { MDBChipsInput } from "mdbreact";

          class ChipsInputPage extends React.Component {


          render() {
            return (
              <div>
                <MDBChipsInput chips={["Tag 1", "Tag 2" , "Tag 3" ]} />
              </div>
              )
            }
          }

          export default ChipsInputPage;
