Basic example

Wrap a series of buttons with Button component in ButtonGroup component.

warning
Ensure correct role and provide a label

In order for assistive technologies (such as screen readers) to convey that a series of buttons is grouped, an appropriate role attribute needs to be provided. For button groups, this would be role="group", while toolbars should have a role="toolbar".

In addition, groups and toolbars should be given an explicit label, as most assistive technologies will otherwise not announce them, despite the presence of the correct role attribute. In the examples provided here, we use aria-label, but alternatives such as aria-labelledby can also be used.

These classes can also be added to groups of links, as an alternative to the nav navigation components .

vue

Checkbox and radio button groups

Combine button-like checkbox and radio toggle buttons into a seamless looking button group.

vue

Button toolbar

Combine sets of button groups into button toolbars for more complex components. Use utility attributes as needed to space out groups, buttons, and more.

vue

Feel free to mix input groups with button groups in your toolbars. Similar to the example above, you'll likely need some attributes though to space things properly.

vue

Sizing

Instead of applying button sizing classes to every button in a group, just add .btn-group-* to each .btn-group, including each one when nesting multiple groups.
