Active or Disabled List Group Item

To make a list group item active add class .active to the list group item.

To make a list group item disabled add class .disabled to the list group item.

In the example below 'Home' is active and 'Mails' is disabled.

  1. Home
  2. Mails
  3. Calls
  4. Text Messages

Code:

Example

<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item active">Home</li>

Links And Buttons in List Group

List group can also contain links and buttons.

It is not necessary to use a list element to create a list group but it is recommended to use a list element for better styling. You can use the div tag as well with the .list-group class.

To create actionable list group item add .list-group-item-action class to the <a> tag or <button> tag.

Note: Do not use the .btn class with buttons in the list group.

In the example below the list, items are clickable where 'Bootstrap' is an active item.

Code:

Example

<div class="list-group">
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">HTML</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action active">Bootstrap</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">CSS</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item list-group-item-action">JavaScript</a>
</div>

List group can be used to show any product detail or can be used as a webpage sidebar to show related links.


List Items With Badges

List group with badges is a very useful and powerful component of bootstrap.

You can add badges to the list group item to show a number of unread counts.

To create a badge apply .badge class on <span> element.

</ul>
