Vue Bootstrap Buttons Group

Vue Buttons Group - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

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

Examples of Bootstrap button group use:

  • Group of pricing options
  • Group of licenses you can see on our MDB Pro page

See the following button groups examples:


Basic example


        <template>
          <mdb-btn-group>
            <mdb-btn color="primary">Left</mdb-btn>
            <mdb-btn color="primary">Middle</mdb-btn>
            <mdb-btn color="primary">Right</mdb-btn>
          </mdb-btn-group>
        </template>
      

        <script>
          import { mdbBtn, mdbBtnGroup } from 'mdbvue';
          export default {
            name: 'ButtonsGroup',
            components: {
              mdbBtn,
              mdbBtnGroup
            }
          }
        </script>
      

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.


Button 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.


        <template>
          <mdb-btn-toolbar>
            <mdb-btn-group class="mr-2">
              <mdb-btn>1</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn>2</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn>3</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn>4</mdb-btn>
            </mdb-btn-group>
            <mdb-btn-group class="mr-2">
              <mdb-btn>5</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn>6</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn>7</mdb-btn>
            </mdb-btn-group>
            <mdb-btn-group>
              <mdb-btn>8</mdb-btn>
            </mdb-btn-group>
          </mdb-btn-toolbar>
        </template>
      

        <script>
          import { mdbBtn, mdbBtnGroup, mdbBtnToolbar } from 'mdbvue';
          export default {
            name: 'ButtonsGroup',
            components: {
              mdbBtn,
              mdbBtnGroup,
              mdbBtnToolbar
            }
          }
        </script>
      

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.


        <template>
          <div>
            <mdb-btn-group size="lg">
              <mdb-btn color="unique" size="lg">Left</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="unique" size="lg">Middle</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="unique" size="lg">Right</mdb-btn>
            </mdb-btn-group>
            <br><br>
            <mdb-btn-group>
              <mdb-btn color="unique">Left</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="unique">Middle</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="unique">Right</mdb-btn>
            </mdb-btn-group>
            <br><br>
            <mdb-btn-group size="sm">
              <mdb-btn color="unique" size="sm">Left</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="unique" size="sm">Middle</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="unique" size="sm">Right</mdb-btn>
            </mdb-btn-group>
          </div>
        </template>
      

        <script>
          import { mdbBtn, mdbBtnGroup } from 'mdbvue';
          export default {
            name: 'ButtonsGroup',
            components: {
              mdbBtn,
              mdbBtnGroup
            }
          }
        </script>
      

        <style>
          .btn-group-lg .btn, .btn-group-sm .btn {
            border-radius: 2px;
          }
        </style>
      

Nesting

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


        <template>
          <mdb-btn-group>
            <mdb-btn color="info">1</mdb-btn>
            <mdb-btn color="info">2</mdb-btn>
            <mdb-btn-group>
              <mdb-dropdown>
                <mdb-dropdown-toggle color="info" slot="toggle">Dropdown</mdb-dropdown-toggle>
                <mdb-dropdown-menu color="info">
                  <mdb-dropdown-item>Dropdown link</mdb-dropdown-item>
                  <mdb-dropdown-item>Dropdown link</mdb-dropdown-item>
                </mdb-dropdown-menu>
              </mdb-dropdown>
            </mdb-btn-group>
          </mdb-btn-group>
        </template>
      

        <script>
          import { mdbBtn, mdbBtnGroup, mdbDropdown, mdbDropdownItem, mdbDropdownMenu, mdbDropdownToggle } from 'mdbvue';
          export default {
            name: 'ButtonsGroup',
            components: {
              mdbBtn,
              mdbBtnGroup,
              mdbDropdown,
              mdbDropdownItem,
              mdbDropdownMenu,
              mdbDropdownToggle
            }
          }
        </script>
      

Vertical variation

Make a set of buttons appear vertically stacked rather than horizontally. Split button dropdowns are not supported here.


        <template>
          <div>
            <mdb-btn-group vertical>
              <mdb-btn color="amber" class="mb-0">Button</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="amber" class="mb-0">Button</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="amber" class="mb-0">Button</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="amber" class="mb-0">Button</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="amber" class="mb-0">Button</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="amber">Button</mdb-btn>
            </mdb-btn-group>
            <mdb-btn-group vertical class="ml-5">
              <mdb-btn color="indigo" class="ml-0 mb-0">Button</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn color="indigo" class="ml-0 mb-0">Button</mdb-btn>
              <mdb-btn-group>
                <mdb-dropdown>
                  <mdb-dropdown-toggle color="indigo" slot="toggle">Dropdown</mdb-dropdown-toggle>
                  <mdb-dropdown-menu color="indigo">

                    <mdb-dropdown-item>Dropdown link</mdb-dropdown-item>
                  </mdb-dropdown-menu>
                </mdb-dropdown>
              </mdb-btn-group>
              <mdb-btn-group>
                <mdb-dropdown>
                  <mdb-dropdown-toggle color="indigo" slot="toggle">Dropdown</mdb-dropdown-toggle>
                  <mdb-dropdown-menu color="indigo">

              <mdb-btn color="indigo" class="ml-0">Button</mdb-btn>
            </mdb-btn-group>

        <script>

              mdbDropdown,
              mdbDropdownItem,
              mdbDropdownMenu,
              mdbDropdownToggle
            }
