Display property

Quickly and responsively toggle the display value of components and more with our display utilities. Includes support for some of the more common values, as well as some extras for controlling display when printing.

Common display values

The display property accepts a handful of values and we support many of them with utility classes. We purposefully don’t provide every value as a utility, so here’s what we support:

  • .d-none
  • .d-inline
  • .d-inline-block
  • .d-block
  • .d-table
  • .d-table-cell
  • .d-flex
  • .d-inline-flex

Put them to use by applying any of the classes to an element of your choice. For example, here’s how you could use the inline, block, or inline-block utilities (the same applies to the other classes).

<div class="d-inline bg-success">d-inline</div>
<div class="d-inline bg-success">d-inline</div>
<span class="d-block bg-primary">d-block</span>
<div class="d-inline-block bg-warning">d-inline-block</div>
<div class="d-inline-block bg-warning">d-inline-block</div>

Responsive variations also exist for every single utility mentioned above.

  • .d-none
  • .d-inline
  • .d-inline-block
  • .d-block
  • .d-table

Hiding Elements

For faster mobile-friendly development, use responsive display classes for showing and hiding elements by device. Avoid creating entirely different versions of the same site, instead hide element responsively for each screen size.

To hide elements simply use the .d-none class or one of the .d-{sm,md,lg,xl}-none classes for any responsive screen variation.

To show an element only on a given interval of screen sizes you can combine one .d-*-none class with a .d-*-* class, for example .d-none.d-md-block.d-xl-none will hide the element for all screen sizes except on medium and large devices.

Screen Size Class
Hidden on all d-none
Hidden only on xs d-none d-sm-block
Hidden only on sm d-sm-none d-md-block
Hidden only on md d-md-none d-lg-block
Hidden only on lg d-lg-none d-xl-block
Hidden only on xl d-xl-none
Visible on all d-block
Visible only on xs d-block d-sm-none
Visible only on sm d-none d-sm-block d-md-none
Visible only on md d-none d-md-block d-lg-none
Visible only on lg d-none d-lg-block d-xl-none
Visible only on xl d-none d-xl-block
