Tables

Documentation and examples for opt-in styling of tables (given their prevelant use in JavaScript plugins) with Bootstrap.

Examples

Due to the widespread use of tables across third-party widgets like calendars and date pickers, we’ve designed our tables to be opt-in. Just add the base class .table to any <table>, then extend with custom styles or our various included modifier classes.

Using the most basic table markup, here’s how .table-based tables look in Bootstrap. All table styles are inherited in Bootstrap 4, meaning any nested tables will be styled in the same manner as the parent.

# First Name Last Name Username
1 Mark Otto @mdo
2 Jacob Thornton @fat
3 Larry the Bird @twitter
<table class="table">
	<thead>
		<tr>
			<th scope="col">#</th>
			<th scope="col">First Name</th>
			<th scope="col">Last Name</th>
			<th scope="col">Username</th>
		</tr>
	</thead>
	<tbody>
		<tr>
			<th scope="row">1</th>
			<td>Mark</td>
			<td>Otto</td>
			<td>@mdo</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<th scope="row">2</th>
			<td>Jacob</td>
			<td>Thornton</td>
			<td>@fat</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<th scope="row">3</th>
			<td>Larry</td>
			<td>the Bird</td>
			<td>@twitter</td>
		</tr>
	</tbody>
</table>

You can also invert the colors—with light text on dark backgrounds—with .table-dark.

# First Name Last Name Username
1 Mark Otto @mdo
2 Jacob Thornton @fat
3 Larry the Bird @twitter
<table class="table table-dark">
	<thead>
		<tr>
			<th scope="col">#</th>
			<th scope="col">First Name</th>
			<th scope="col">Last Name</th>
			<th scope="col">Username</th>
		</tr>
	</thead>
	<tbody>
		<tr>
			<th scope="row">1</th>
			<td>Mark</td>
			<td>Otto</td>
			<td>@mdo</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<th scope="row">2</th>
			<td>Jacob</td>
			<td>Thornton</td>
			<td>@fat</td>
		</tr>
		<tr>
			<th scope="row">3</th>
			<td>Larry</td>
			<td>the Bird</td>
			<td>@twitter</td>
		</tr>
	</tbody>
</table>

Table head options

Similar to tables and dark tables, use the modifier classes .thead-light or .thead-dark to make <thead>s appear light or dark gray.

# First Name Last Name Username
1 Mark Otto @mdo
2 Jacob Thornton @fat
3 Larry the Bird @twitter
# First Name Last Name Username

	</thead>
	<tbody>
		<tr>

Small table

Add .table-sm to make tables more compact by cutting cell padding in half.

Contextual classes

Use contextual classes to color table rows or individual cells.

Type Column heading Column heading Column heading
Active Column content Column content Column content
Default Column content Column content Column content
Primary Column content Column content Column content
Secondary Column content Column content Column content
Success Column content Column content Column content
Danger Column content Column content Column content
Warning Column content Column content Column content
Info Column content Column content Column content
Light Column content Column content Column content
Dark Column content Column content Column content
<!-- On rows -->
<tr class="table-active">...</tr>

<tr class="table-primary">...</tr>
<tr class="table-secondary">...</tr>
<tr class="table-success">...</tr>
<tr class="table-danger">...</tr>
<tr class="table-warning">...</tr>
<tr class="table-info">...</tr>
<tr class="table-light">...</tr>
<tr class="table-dark">...</tr>

<!-- On cells (`td` or `th`) -->
<tr>
	<td class="table-active">...</td>

	<td class="table-primary">...</td>
	<td class="table-secondary">...</td>
	<td class="table-success">...</td>
	<td class="table-danger">...</td>
	<td class="table-warning">...</td>
	<td class="table-info">...</td>
	<td class="table-light">...</td>
	<td class="table-dark">...</td>
</tr>

Regular table background variants are not available with the dark table, however, you may use text or background utilities to achieve similar styles.

# Column heading Column heading Column heading
1 Column content Column content Column content
2 Column content Column content Column content
3 Column content Column content Column content
4 Column content Column content Column content
5 Column content Column content Column content
6 Column content Column content Column content
7 Column content Column content Column content

<!-- On rows -->
<tr class="bg-primary">...</tr>
<tr class="bg-success">...</tr>
<tr class="bg-warning">...</tr>
<tr class="bg-danger">...</tr>
<tr class="bg-info">...</tr>

<!-- On cells (`td` or `th`) -->
<tr>
	<td class="bg-primary">...</td>
	<td class="bg-success">...</td>
	<td class="bg-warning">...</td>
	<td class="bg-danger">...</td>
	<td class="bg-info">...</td>
</tr>

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.

Captions

A <caption> functions like a heading for a table. It helps users with screen readers to find a table and understand what it’s about and decide if they want to read it.

List of users
# First Name Last Name Username

Responsive tables

Responsive tables allow tables to be scrolled horizontally with ease. Make any table responsive across all viewports by adding .table-responsive class on .table. Or, pick a maximum breakpoint with which to have a responsive table up to by adding .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl}.

Vertical clipping/truncation

Responsive tables make use of overflow-y: hidden, which clips off any content that goes beyond the bottom or top edges of the table. In particular, this can clip off dropdown menus and other third-party widgets.

Always responsive

# Table heading Table heading Table heading Table heading Table heading Table heading Table heading Table heading Table heading
1 Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell
2 Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell

3 Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell
<table class="table table-responsive">

</table>

Breakpoint specific

Use .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl} as needed to create responsive tables up to a particular breakpoint. From that breakpoint and up, the table will behave normally and not scroll horizontally.
