List Group

List groups are a flexible and powerful component for displaying a series of content. List group items can be modified and extended to support just about any content within. They can also be used as navigation with the right modifier class.

Contents

Basic Example

The most basic list group is an unordered list with list items, and the proper classes. Build upon it with the options that follow, or with your own CSS as needed.

  • Cras justo odio
  • Dapibus ac facilisis in
  • Morbi leo risus
  • Porta ac consectetur ac
  • Vestibulum at eros
<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item">Cras justo odio</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Dapibus ac facilisis in</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Morbi leo risus</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Porta ac consectetur ac</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Vestibulum at eros</li>
</ul>

Active Items

Add .active to a .list-group-item to indicate the current active selection.

  • Cras justo odio
  • Dapibus ac facilisis in
  • Morbi leo risus
  • Porta ac consectetur ac
  • Vestibulum at eros
<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item active">
    Cras justo odio
  </li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Dapibus ac facilisis in</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Morbi leo risus</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Porta ac consectetur ac</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Vestibulum at eros</li>
</ul>

Disabled Items

Add .disabled to a .list-group-item to make it out to appear disabled. Note that some elements with .disabled will also require custom JavaScript to fully disable their click events (e.g., links).

Disabling Anchors

Please refer to the Accessiblity notes about disabled anchors.

  • Cras justo odio
  • Dapibus ac facilisis in
  • Morbi leo risus
  • Porta ac consectetur ac
  • Vestibulum at eros
<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item disabled">
    Cras justo odio
  </li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Dapibus ac facilisis in</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Morbi leo risus</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Porta ac consectetur ac</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Vestibulum at eros</li>
</ul>

Use <a>s or <button>s to create actionable list group items with hover, disabled, and active states by adding .list-group-item-action. We separate these pseudo-classes to ensure list groups made of non-interactive elements (like <li>s or <div>s) don’t provide a click or tap affordance.

Be sure to not use the standard .btn classes here.

<div class="list-group">
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action active">
    Cras justo odio
  </a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">Dapibus ac facilisis in</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">Morbi leo risus</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">Porta ac consectetur ac</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action disabled" tabindex="-1">Vestibulum at eros</a>
</div>

With <button>s, you can also make use of the disabled attribute instead of the .disabled class. Sadly, <a>s don’t support the disabled attribute.

<div class="list-group">
  <button type="button" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action active">
    Cras justo odio
  </button>
  <button type="button" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">Dapibus ac facilisis in</button>
  <button type="button" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">Morbi leo risus</button>
  <button type="button" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">Porta ac consectetur ac</button>
  <button type="button" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action disabled">Vestibulum at eros</button>
</div>

Contextual Classes

Use contextual classes to style list items with a stateful background and color.

Conveying Meaning to Assistive Technologies

Please refer to the Accessiblity notes about conveying meaning with color.

  • Cras justo odio
  • Dapibus ac facilisis in
  • Cras sit amet nibh libero
  • Porta ac consectetur ac
  • Vestibulum at eros
<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item">Cras justo odio</li>
  <li class="list-group-item list-group-item-success">Dapibus ac facilisis in</li>
  <li class="list-group-item list-group-item-info">Cras sit amet nibh libero</li>
  <li class="list-group-item list-group-item-warning">Porta ac consectetur ac</li>
  <li class="list-group-item list-group-item-danger">Vestibulum at eros</li>
</ul>

Contextual classes also work with .list-group-item-action. Note the addition of the hover styles here not present in the previous example. Also supported is the .active state; apply it to indicate an active selection on a contextual list group item.

<div class="list-group">
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">Cras justo odio</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action list-group-item-success">Dapibus ac facilisis in</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action list-group-item-info">Cras sit amet nibh libero</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action list-group-item-warning">Porta ac consectetur ac</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action list-group-item-danger">Vestibulum at eros</a>
</div>

Adding Badges

Add badges to any list group item to show unread counts, activity, and more with the help of some flexbox utility classes.

  • Cras justo odio 14
  • Dapibus ac facilisis in 2
  • Morbi leo risus 1
<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item d-flex flex-between flex-items-center">
    Cras justo odio
    <span class="badge badge-pill">14</span>
  </li>
  <li class="list-group-item d-flex flex-between flex-items-center">
    Dapibus ac facilisis in
    <span class="badge badge-pill">2</span>
  </li>
  <li class="list-group-item d-flex flex-between flex-items-center">
    Morbi leo risus
    <span class="badge badge-pill">1</span>
  </li>
</ul>

Custom Content

Add nearly any HTML within, even for linked list groups like the one below, using flexbox utilities for layout.

<div class="list-group">
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action flex-column flex-start active">
    <div class="d-flex w-100 flex-between">
      <h5>List group item heading</h5>
      <small>3 days ago</small>
    </div>
    <p class="mb-0_25">Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus. Maecenas sed diam eget risus varius blandit.</p>
    <small>Donec id elit non mi porta.</small>
  </a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action flex-column flex-start">
    <div class="d-flex w-100 flex-between">
      <h5>List group item heading</h5>
      <small class="text-muted">3 days ago</small>
    </div>
    <p class="mb-0_25">Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus. Maecenas sed diam eget risus varius blandit.</p>
    <small class="text-muted">Donec id elit non mi porta.</small>
  </a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action flex-column flex-start">
    <div class="d-flex w-100 flex-between">
      <h5>List group item heading</h5>
      <small class="text-muted">3 days ago</small>
    </div>
    <p class="mb-0_25">Donec id elit non mi porta gravida at eget metus. Maecenas sed diam eget risus varius blandit.</p>
    <small class="text-muted">Donec id elit non mi porta.</small>
  </a>
</div>
