jQuery Mobile - Basic Buttons in grids


Margin gap is there on the left and right side of the button. Margin is not applied directly to the elements when the width is 100%, wrap the button inside the div tag to get the margin space as of the other button.


Following example demonstrates the use of basic button grid in the jQuery Mobile.

<!DOCTYPE html>
      <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = device-width, initial-scale = 1">
      <link rel = "stylesheet" href = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.css">
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
      <script src = "https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script>
      <h2>Basic Button Grid Example</h2>
      <div class = "ui-grid-b">
         <div class = "ui-block-a">
            <a class = "ui-btn ui-corner-all ui-shadow ui-btn-b">Using Anchor Tag</a>
         <div class = "ui-block-b">
            <button class = "ui-btn ui-corner-all ui-shadow ui-btn-a">Using Button</button>
         <div class = "ui-block-c">
            <input type = "button" value = "Using Input Tag" />

      <div class = "ui-grid-b">
         <div class = "ui-block-a">
            <label for = "grid-select-1" class = "ui-hidden-accessible">Select</label>
            <select id = "grid-select-1">
               <option value = "1">First Option</option>
               <option value = "2">Second Option</option>
               <option value = "3">Third Option</option>
         <div class = "ui-block-b">
            <label for = "grid-checkbox-1">Checkbox</label>
            <input type = "checkbox" id = "grid-checkbox-1">
         <div class = "ui-block-c">
            <label for = "grid-radio-1">Radio</label>
            <input type = "radio" id = "grid-radio-1" />
