Vue Bootstrap Alerts

Vue Alerts - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

Bootstrap alerts are feedback messages which are displayed after specific actions preceded by the user. Length of the text is not limited.

With the right use of colors, they add some emotional weight to our information, ranging from a simple warning to critical system failure or from an operation success to a neutral information.

Basic examples

Alerts are available for any length of text, as well as an optional dismiss button. For proper styling, use one of the eight contextual props (e.g., color="success"). For inline dismissal, use the dismiss prop.


        <mdb-container>
          <mdb-alert color="primary">
            This is a primary alert—check it out!
          </mdb-alert>
          <mdb-alert color="secondary">
            This is a secondary alert—check it out!
          </mdb-alert>
          <mdb-alert color="success">
            This is a success alert—check it out!
          </mdb-alert>
          <mdb-alert color="danger">
            This is a danger alert—check it out!
          </mdb-alert>
          <mdb-alert color="warning">
            This is a warning alert—check it out!
          </mdb-alert>
          <mdb-alert color="info">
            This is a info alert—check it out!
          </mdb-alert>
          <mdb-alert color="light">
            This is a light alert—check it out!
          </mdb-alert>
          <mdb-alert color="dark">
            This is a dark alert—check it out!
          </mdb-alert>
        </mdb-container>
      

        import { mdbContainer, mdbAlert } from 'mdbvue';
        export default {
          name: 'AlertPage',
          components: {
            mdbContainer, 
            mdbAlert
          },
        }
      

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.



Additional content

Alerts can also contain additional HTML elements like headings, paragraphs and dividers.


              <mdb-alert 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>
              </mdb-alert>
          

            import { mdbAlert } from 'mdbvue';
            export default {
              name: 'AlertPage',
              components: {
                mdbAlert
              },
            }
          

Dismissing

Using the Vue Alert component, it’s possible to dismiss any alert inline. You can see this in action with a live demo:


          <mdb-alert color="warning"
              v-if="p1"
             @closeAlert="p1=false"
             dismiss>
            <strong>Holy guacamole!</strong> You should check in on some of those fields below.
          </mdb-alert>
          

            import { mdbAlert } from 'mdbvue';
            export default {
              name: 'AlertPage',
              components: {
                mdbAlert
              },
              data() {
                return {
                  p1: true,
                };
              },
            }
