React Bootstrap Display

React Display - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

React Bootstrap display is a property which applies to many elements and specifies the type of rendering box used for an element.

Quickly and responsively toggle the display value of components and more with our display utilities. Includes support for some of the more common values, as well as some extras for controlling display when printing.


How it works

Change the value of the display property with our responsive display utility classes. We purposely support only a subset of all possible values for display. Classes can be combined for various effects as you need.


Notation

Display utility classes that apply to all breakpoints, from xs to xl, have no breakpoint a abbreviation in them. This is because those classes are applied from min-width: 0; and up, and thus are not bound by a media query. The remaining breakpoints, however, do include a breakpoint abbreviation.

As such, the classes are named using the format:

  • .d-{value} for xs
  • .d-{breakpoint}-{value} for sm, md, lg and xl.

Where value is one of:

  • none
  • inline
  • inline-block
  • block
  • table
  • table-cell
  • table-row
  • flex
  • inline-flex

The media queries effect screen widths with the given breakpoint or larger. For example, .d-lg-none sets display: none; on both lg and xl screens.


Examples

Put them to use by applying any of the classes to an element of your choice. For example, here’s how you could use the inline, block, or inline-block utilities (the same applies to the other classes).

              import React from "react";

              const DisplayPage = () => {
              return (
              <>
                <div className="d-inline p-2 m-1 bg-primary text-white">Inline</div>
                <div className="d-inline p-2 m-1 bg-dark  text-white">Inline</div>
              </>
              );
              }

              export default DisplayPage;
          
Block Block


            import React from "react";

            const DisplayPage = () => {
            return (
            <>
              <span className="d-block p-2 bg-primary text-white">Block</span>
              <span className="d-block p-2 bg-dark text-white">Block</span>
            </>
            );
            }

            export default DisplayPage;

            import React from "react";

            const DisplayPage = () => {
            return (
            <>
              <div className="d-inline-block bg-primary text-white">
                <h3>inline-block</h3>
                Boot that strap!
              </div>
              <div className="d-inline-block bg-primary text-white">
                <h3>inline-block</h3>
                Strap that boot!
              </div>
            </>
            );
            }

            export default DisplayPage;

          

Hiding elements

For faster mobile-friendly development, use responsive display classes for showing and hiding elements by device. Avoid creating entirely different versions of the same site, instead hide element responsively for each screen size.

To hide elements simply use the .d-none class or one of the .d-{sm,md,lg,xl}-none classes for any responsive screen variation.

To show an element only on a given interval of screen sizes you can combine one .d-*-none class with a .d-*-* class, for example .d-none .d-md-block .d-xl-none will hide the element for all screen sizes except on medium and large devices.

Screen Size Class
Hidden on all .d-none
Hidden only on xs .d-none .d-sm-block
Hidden only on sm .d-sm-none .d-md-block
Hidden only on md .d-md-none .d-lg-block
Hidden only on lg .d-lg-none .d-xl-block
Hidden only on xl .d-xl-none
Visible on all .d-block
Visible only on xs .d-block .d-sm-none
Visible only on sm .d-none .d-sm-block .d-md-none
Visible only on md d-none .d-md-block .d-lg-none
Visible only on lg .d-none .d-lg-block .d-xl-none
Visible only on xl .d-none .d-xl-block
hide on screens wider than lg
hide on screens smaller than lg


        import React from "react";

        const DisplayPage = () => {
          return (
            <>
              <div className="d-lg-none">hide on screens wider than lg</div>
              <div className="d-none d-lg-block">hide on screens smaller than lg</div>
            </>
          );
        }

        export default DisplayPage;

      

Display in print

Change the display value of elements when printing with our print display utility classes. Includes support for the same display values as our responsive .d-* utilities.

  • .d-print-none
  • .d-print-inline
  • .d-print-inline-block
  • .d-print-block
  • .d-print-table
  • .d-print-table-row
  • .d-print-table-cell
  • .d-print-flex
  • .d-print-inline-flex

The print and display classes can be combined.

Screen Only (Hide on print only)

Print Only (Hide on screen only)

Hide up to large on screen, but always show on print



        import React from "react";

        const DisplayPage = () => {
          return (
            <>
              <div className="d-print-none">Screen Only (Hide on print only)</div>
              <div className="d-none d-print-block">Print Only (Hide on screen only)</div>
              <div className="d-none d-lg-block d-print-block">Hide up to large on screen, but always show on print</div>
            </>
          );
        }

        export default DisplayPage;
