Additional Content


          <div class="alert" role="alert" data-color="success">
            <h4 class="alert-heading">Well done!</h4>
            <p>
              Aww yeah, you successfully read this important alert message. This example text is
              going to run a bit longer so that you can see how spacing within an alert works with
              this kind of content.
            </p>
            <hr />
            <p class="mb-0">
              Whenever you need to, be sure to use margin utilities to keep things nice and tidy.
            </p>
          </div>
        

Dismissing

Using the alert JavaScript plugin, it’s possible to dismiss any alert inline. Here’s how:

  • Be sure you’ve loaded the alert plugin, or the compiled Bootstrap JavaScript.
  • Add a close button and the .alert-dismissible class, which adds extra padding to the right of the alert and positions the close button.
  • On the close button, add the data-dismiss="alert" attribute, which triggers the JavaScript functionality. Be sure to use the button element with it for proper behavior across all devices.
  • To animate alerts when dismissing them, be sure to add the .fade and .show classes.

You can see this in action with a live demo:


          <div class="alert alert-dismissible fade show" role="alert" data-color="warning">
            <strong>Holy guacamole!</strong> You should check in on some of those fields below.
            <button
              type="button"
              class="btn-close"
              data-dismiss="alert"
              aria-label="Close"
            ></button>
          </div>
        

Show

You can manually show alert using show() method.


          <div
            class="alert fade"
            id="show-example"
            data-hidden="true"
            role="alert"
            data-color="primary"
          >
            Hidden alert!
          </div>
        

          mdb.Alert.getInstance(document.getElementById('show-example')).show();
        

Hide

You can manually hide alert using hide() method.


          <div class="alert fade show mt-3" id="hide-example" role="alert" data-color="primary">
            Hide me!
          </div>
        

          mdb.Alert.getInstance(document.getElementById('hide-example')).hide();
        

Placement

You can set the position of every alert using the data-position attribute.

Select horizontal / vertical alignment

Current position: top-right

          <div
            class="alert fade show mt-3"
            id="placement-example"
            data-position="top-right"
            data-hidden="true"
            data-width="25%"
            role="alert"
            data-color="primary"
          >
            Show me wherever you want!
          </div>
        

          mdb.Alert.getInstance(document.getElementById('placement-example')).show();
        

Container

You can display an alert anywhere. Just put it in your target element and fill the data-container attribute with id or class of parent.


          <div
            class="alert fade"
            id="container-example"
            role="alert"
            data-container="#parent-container-example"
            data-color="primary"
          >
            Hello from parent element!
          </div>
        

          mdb.Alert.getInstance(document.getElementById('container-example')).show();
        

Offset

You can set offset of your alert using a data-offset tag.


          <div
            class="alert fade"
            id="offset-example"
            data-hidden="true"
            data-offset="100"
            role="alert"
            data-color="primary"
          >
            Offset: 100px
          </div>
        

          mdb.Alert.getInstance(document.getElementById('offset-example')).show();
        

Stacking

You can turn on stacking your alerts using the data-stacking attribute.


          <div
            class="alert fade"
            id="stacking-first-example"
            role="alert"
            data-stacking="true"
            data-color="primary"
          >
            First stacking example
          </div>
          <div
            class="alert fade"
            id="stacking-second-example"
            role="alert"
            data-stacking="true"
            data-color="primary"
          >
            Second stacking example
          </div>
        

          mdb.Alert.getInstance(document.getElementById('stacking-first-example')).show();
          mdb.Alert.getInstance(document.getElementById('stacking-second-example')).show();
