Bootstrap 4 List Groups


Basic List Groups

The most basic list group is an unordered list with list items:

  • First item
  • Second item
  • Third item

To create a basic list group, use an <ul> element with class .list-group, and <li> elements with class .list-group-item:

Example

<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item">First item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Second item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Third item</li>
</ul>

Active State

  • Active item
  • Second item
  • Third item

Use the .active class to highlight the current item:

Example

<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item active">Active item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Second item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Third item</li>
</ul>

List Group With Linked Items

To create a list group with linked items, use <div> instead of <ul> and <a> instead of <li>. Optionally, add the .list-group-item-action class if you want a grey background color on hover:

Example

<div class="list-group">
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">First item</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">Second item</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">Third item</a>
</div>

Disabled Item

The .disabled class adds a lighter text color to the disabled item. And when used on links, it will remove the hover effect:

Example

<div class="list-group">
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item disabled">Disabled item</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item disabled">Disabled item</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item">Third item</a>
</div>

Flush / Remove Borders

Use the .list-group-flush class to remove some borders and rounded corners:

  • First item
  • Second item
  • Third item
  • Fourth item

Example

<ul class="list-group list-group-flush">
  <li class="list-group-item">First item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Second item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Third item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Fourth item</li>
</ul>

Horizontal List Groups

If you want the list items to display horizontally instead of vertically (side by side instead of on top of each other), add the .list-group-horizontal class to .list-group:

  • First item
  • Second item
  • Third item
  • Fourth item

Example

<ul class="list-group list-group-horizontal">
  <li class="list-group-item">First item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Second item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Third item</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Fourth item</li>
</ul>

Contextual classes can be used to color list items:

  • Success item
  • Secondary item

The classes for coloring list-items are: .list-group-item-success, list-group-item-secondary, list-group-item-info, list-group-item-warning, .list-group-item-danger, .list-group-item-primary, list-group-item-dark and list-group-item-light,:
