Button group

Button group - Bootstrap 5 & Material Design 2.0 components

Group a series of buttons together on a single line with the button group.


Basic example

Wrap a series of buttons with .btn in .btn-group.


          <div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="Basic example">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Left</button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Middle</button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Right</button>
          </div>
        

Ensure correct role and provide a label:
In order for assistive technologies (such as screen readers) to convey that a series of buttons is grouped, an appropriate role attribute needs to be provided. For button groups, this would be role="group", while toolbars should have a role="toolbar".
In addition, groups and toolbars should be given an explicit label, as most assistive technologies will otherwise not announce them, despite the presence of the correct role attribute. In the examples provided here, we use aria-label, but alternatives such as aria-labelledby can also be used.

These classes can also be added to links. Use the .active class to highlight a link.


          <div class="btn-group">
            <a href="#!" class="btn btn-primary active">Active link</a>
            <a href="#!" class="btn btn-primary">Link</a>
            <a href="#!" class="btn btn-primary">Link</a>
          </div>
        

Outlined styles


          <div class="btn-group shadow-0" role="group" aria-label="Basic example">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-outline-secondary" data-color="dark">
              Left
            </button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-outline-secondary" data-color="dark">
              Middle
            </button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-outline-secondary" data-color="dark">
              Right
            </button>
          </div>
        

Toolbar

Combine sets of button groups into button toolbars for more complex components. Use utility classes as needed to space out groups, buttons, and more.


          <div class="btn-toolbar" role="toolbar" aria-label="Toolbar with button groups">
            <div class="btn-group mr-2" role="group" aria-label="First group">
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">1</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">2</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">3</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">4</button>
            </div>
            <div class="btn-group mr-2" role="group" aria-label="Second group">
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">5</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">6</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">7</button>
            </div>
            <div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="Third group">
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">8</button>
            </div>
          </div>
        

Feel free to mix input groups with button groups in your toolbars. Similar to the example above, you’ll likely need some utilities though to space things properly.


          <div class="btn-toolbar mb-3" role="toolbar" aria-label="Toolbar with button groups">
            <div class="btn-group mr-2" role="group" aria-label="First group">
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">1</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">2</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">3</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">4</button>
            </div>
            <div class="input-group">
              <div class="input-group-text" id="btnGroupAddon">@</div>
              <input
                type="text"
                class="form-control"
                placeholder="Input group example"
                aria-label="Input group example"
                aria-describedby="btnGroupAddon"
              />
            </div>
          </div>

          <div
            class="btn-toolbar justify-content-between"
            role="toolbar"
            aria-label="Toolbar with button groups"
          >
            <div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="First group">
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">1</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">2</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">3</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">4</button>
            </div>
            <div class="input-group">
              <div class="input-group-text" id="btnGroupAddon2">@</div>
              <input
                type="text"
                class="form-control"
                placeholder="Input group example"
                aria-label="Input group example"
                aria-describedby="btnGroupAddon2"
              />
            </div>
          </div>
        

Sizing

Instead of applying button sizing classes to every button in a group, just add .btn-group-* to each .btn-group, including each one when nesting multiple groups.






          <!-- Large -->
          <div class="btn-group btn-group-lg" role="group" aria-label="Basic example">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Left</button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Middle</button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Right</button>
          </div>

          <!-- Standard -->
          <div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="Basic example">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Left</button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Middle</button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Right</button>
          </div>

          <!-- Small -->
          <div class="btn-group btn-group-sm" role="group" aria-label="Basic example">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Left</button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Middle</button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Right</button>
          </div>
        

Nesting

Place a .btn-group within another .btn-group when you want dropdown menus mixed with a series of buttons.


          <div class="btn-group" role="group" aria-label="Button group with nested dropdown">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">1</button>
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">2</button>

            <div class="btn-group" role="group">
              <button
                id="btnGroupDrop1"
                type="button"
                class="btn btn-primary dropdown-toggle"
                data-toggle="dropdown"
                aria-expanded="false"
              >
                Dropdown
              </button>
              <ul class="dropdown-menu" aria-labelledby="btnGroupDrop1">
                <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Dropdown link</a></li>
                <li><a class="dropdown-item" href="#">Dropdown link</a></li>
              </ul>
            </div>
          </div>
        

Vertical variation


            <div class="btn-group-vertical" role="group" aria-label="Vertical button group">
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Button</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Button</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Button</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Button</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Button</button>
              <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Button</button>
            </div>
          


            <div class="btn-group-vertical" role="group" aria-label="Vertical button group">

              <div class="btn-group" role="group">
                <button
                  id="btnGroupVerticalDrop1"
                  type="button"
                  class="btn btn-primary dropdown-toggle"
                  data-toggle="dropdown"
