Bootstrap Responsive utilities


Advertisements


Bootstrap provides some handful helper classes, for faster mobile-friendly development. These can be used for showing and hiding content by device via media query, combined with large, small, and medium devices.

Use these sparingly and avoid creating entirely different versions of the same site. Responsive utilities are currently only available for block and table toggling.

Classes Devices
.visible-xs Extra small (less than 768px) visible
.visible-sm Small (up to 768 px) visible
.visible-md Medium (768 px to 991 px) visible
.visible-lg Larger (992 px and above) visible
.hidden-xs Extra small (less than 768px) hidden
.hidden-sm Small (up to 768 px) hidden
.hidden-md Medium (768 px to 991 px) hidden
.hidden-lg Larger (992 px and above) hidden
