Bootstrap 4 Grid - Extra Large


XLarge Grid Example

  Extra small Small Medium Large Extra Large
Class prefix .col- .col-sm- .col-md- .col-lg- .col-xl-
Screen width <576px >=576px >=768px >=992px >=1200px

In the previous chapter, we presented a grid example with classes for small and medium devices. We used two divs (columns) and we gave them a 25%/75% split on small devices, and a 50%/50% split on medium devices and a 33%/66% split on large devices:

<div class="col-sm-3 col-md-6 col-lg-4">....</div>
<div class="col-sm-9 col-md-6 col-lg-8">....</div>

But on xlarge devices the design may be better as a 20%/80% split.

Extra large devices are defined as having a screen width from 1200 pixels and above.

For xlarge devices we will use the .col-xl-* classes:

<div class="col-sm-3 col-md-6 col-lg-4 col-xl-2">....</div>
<div class="col-sm-9 col-md-6 col-lg-8 col-xl-10">....</div>

The following example will result in a 25%/75% split on small devices, a 50%/50% split on medium devices, and a 33%/66% split on large and a 20%/80% split on xlarge devices. On extra small devices, it will automatically stack (100%):

col-sm-3 col-md-6 col-lg-4 col-xl-2
col-sm-9 col-md-6 col-lg-8 col-xl-10

Example

<div class="container-fluid">
  <div class="row">
    <div class="col-sm-3 col-md-6 col-lg-4 col-xl-2">
      <p>Lorem ipsum...</p>
    </div>
    <div class="col-sm-9 col-md-6 col-lg-8 col-xl-10">
      <p>Sed ut perspiciatis...</p>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

Note: Make sure that the sum always adds up to 12.


Using Only XLarge

In the example below, we only specify the .col-xl-6 class (without .col-lg-*, .col-md-* and/or .col-sm-*). This means that xlarge devices will split 50%/50%. However, for large, medium, small AND extra small devices, it will stack vertically (100% width):

Example

<div class="container-fluid">
  <div class="row">
    <div class="col-xl-6">
      <p>Lorem ipsum...</p>
    </div>
    <div class="col-xl-6">
      <p>Sed ut perspiciatis...</p>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

Auto Layout Columns

In Bootstrap 4, there is an easy way to create equal width columns for all devices: just remove the number from .col-xl-* and only use the .col-xl class on a specified number of col elements. Bootstrap will recognize how many columns there are, and each column will get the same width.

If the screen size is less than 1200px, the columns will stack horizontally:

<!-- Two columns: 50% width on xlarge and up-->
<div class="row">
  <div class="col-xl">1 of 2</div>
  <div class="col-xl">2 of 2</div>
</div>

<!-- Four columns: 25% width on xlarge and up -->
<div class="row">
  <div class="col-xl">1 of 4</div>
  <div class="col-xl">2 of 4</div>
  <div class="col-xl">3 of 4</div>
  <div class="col-xl">4 of 4</div>
</div>
1 of 2
2 of 2
1 of 4
2 of 4
3 of 4
4 of 4
