Bootstrap Grid System Example: Medium and Large Device

Advertisements


We have seen the basic grid system in Example: Stacked-to-horizontal. Here we had used 2 divs and gave them the 50%/50% split at the medium viewport width:

<div class="col-md-6">....</div>
<div class="col-md-6">....</div>

But at large your design could really be better as a 33%/66%. So what we’re going to do is set it up to change the column widths at the breakpoint:

<div class="col-md-6 col-lg-4">....</div>
<div class="col-md-6 col-lg-4">....</div>

Now Bootstrap is going to say “at the medium size, I look at classes with md in them and use those. At the large size, I look at classes with the word lg in them and use those. In this case, our 2 divs will go from a 50%/50% split and then up to a 33%/66%. Check it out in the following example. (Here styling for each column is used. You can avoid it.)

<div class="container">
   <h1>Hello, world!</h1>

   <div class="row">

      <div class="col-md-6 col-lg-4"  style="background-color: #dedef8; 
         box-shadow: inset 1px -1px 1px #444, inset -1px 1px 1px #444;">

      </div>

      <div class="col-md-6 col-lg-8"" style="background-color: #dedef8;

   </div>
