Vertical rule

Use the custom vertical rule helper to create vertical dividers like the <hr> element.

How it works

Vertical rules are inspired by the <hr> element, allowing you to create vertical dividers in common layouts. They’re styled just like <hr> elements:

  • They’re 2px wide
  • They have min-height of 1em
  • Their color is set via currentColor and opacity

Customize them with additional styles as needed.


<div class="vr"></div>

Change their color with background utilities:

<div class="vr bg-primary"></div>

Vertical rules scale their height in flex layouts:

<div class="d-flex" style="height: 200px;">
  <div class="vr"></div>

With stacks

They can also be used in stacks:

First item
Second item
Third item
<div class="hstack gap-3">
  <div class="p-2">First item</div>
  <div class="p-2 ms-auto">Second item</div>
  <div class="vr"></div>
  <div class="p-2">Third item</div>


Sass variables

Customize the vertical rule Sass variable to change its width.

$vr-border-width:             2px; // Boosted mod: instead of `var(--#{$prefix}border-width)`
