Documentation and examples for opt-in styling of tables (given their prevalent use in JavaScript plugins) with Boosted.

Examples

Due to the widespread use of tables across third-party widgets like calendars and date pickers, we’ve designed our tables to be opt-in. Just add the base class .table to any <table>, then extend with custom styles or our various included modifier classes.

Using the most basic table markup, here’s how .table-based tables look in Boosted. All table styles are inherited in Boosted 4, meaning any nested tables will be styled in the same manner as the parent.

# First Last Handle
1 Mark Otto @mdo
2 Jacob Thornton @fat
3 Larry the Bird @twitter
<table class="table">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th scope="col">#</th>
      <th scope="col">First</th>
      <th scope="col">Last</th>
      <th scope="col">Handle</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <th scope="row">1</th>
      <td>Mark</td>
      <td>Otto</td>
      <td>@mdo</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <th scope="row">2</th>
      <td>Jacob</td>
      <td>Thornton</td>
      <td>@fat</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <th scope="row">3</th>
      <td>Larry</td>
      <td>the Bird</td>
      <td>@twitter</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>

You can also invert the colors—with light text on dark backgrounds—with .table-dark.

Hoverable rows

Add .table-hover to enable a hover state on table rows within a <tbody>.

Sizes

Small table

Add .table-sm to make tables more compact by cutting cell padding in half.

Create responsive tables by wrapping any .table with .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl}, making the table scroll horizontally at each max-width breakpoint of up to (but not including) 576px, 768px, 992px, and 1120px, respectively.

Note that since browsers do not currently support range context queries, we work around the limitations of min- and max- prefixes and viewports with fractional widths (which can occur under certain conditions on high-dpi devices, for instance) by using values with higher precision for these comparisons.

Captions

A <caption> functions like a heading for a table. It helps users with screen readers to find a table and understand what it’s about and decide if they want to read it.

Responsive tables

Responsive tables allow tables to be scrolled horizontally with ease. Make any table responsive across all viewports by wrapping a .table with .table-responsive. Or, pick a maximum breakpoint with which to have a responsive table up to by using .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl}.

Vertical clipping/truncation

Responsive tables make use of overflow-y: hidden, which clips off any content that goes beyond the bottom or top edges of the table. In particular, this can clip off dropdown menus and other third-party widgets.

Always responsive

Across every breakpoint, use .table-responsive for horizontally scrolling tables.

# Heading Heading Heading Heading Heading Heading Heading Heading Heading
1 Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell
2 Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell
3 Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell Cell
<div class="table-responsive">
  <table class="table">
    ...
  </table>
</div>

Breakpoint specific

Use .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl} as needed to create responsive tables up to a particular breakpoint. From that breakpoint and up, the table will behave normally and not scroll horizontally.

These tables may appear broken until their responsive styles apply at specific viewport widths.

Rich content tables

Boosted tables may contain icons, thumbnails and checkboxes. To ensure proper layout, avoid using sizes variants in that case: rows' height should automatically match .table-lg ones. Also, when using checkboxes in the first column, add .has-checkbox class to the <table> element to get correct spacing on the first column.

Sortable tables

Boosted bundle includes TableSorter, a jQuery plugin to make data tables sortable.

Then initialize tableSorter by targetting an element, and passing some options. Please refer to TableSorter documentation for more options.

$(document).ready(function () {
  $("#sortable").tablesorter({
    sortList: [[4, 1]],
    onRenderTemplate : function(i, t){
      return '<span>' + t + '</span>';
    }
  });
});
