Tables

Tables are a useful interface element that allows to visualise data and arrange it in a clear way. Thanks to that, users can browse a lot of information at once and a good table design will help you take care of its clarity.

Basic Table

The basic table design has light padding and the presented data is separated wih horizontal dividers. It helps provide users with all the necessary information, without overwheling them with visuals.

The .table class adds basic styling to a table:

<div class="table-responsive">
  <table class="table table-vcenter">
    <thead>
      <tr>
        <th>Name</th>
        <th>Title</th>
        <th>Email</th>
        <th>Role</th>
        <th class="w-1"></th>
      </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
      <tr>
        <td>Paweł Kuna</td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          UI Designer, Training
        </td>
        <td class="text-secondary"><a href="#" class="text-reset">paweluna@howstuffworks.com</a></td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          User
        </td>
        <td>
          <a href="#">Edit</a>
        </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Jeffie Lewzey</td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          Chemical Engineer, Support
        </td>
        <td class="text-secondary"><a href="#" class="text-reset">jlewzey1@seesaa.net</a></td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          Admin
        </td>
        <td>
          <a href="#">Edit</a>
        </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Mallory Hulme</td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          Geologist IV, Support
        </td>
        <td class="text-secondary"><a href="#" class="text-reset">mhulme2@domainmarket.com</a></td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          User
        </td>
        <td>
          <a href="#">Edit</a>
        </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Dunn Slane</td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          Research Nurse, Sales
        </td>
        <td class="text-secondary"><a href="#" class="text-reset">dslane3@epa.gov</a></td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          Owner
        </td>
        <td>
          <a href="#">Edit</a>
        </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td>Emmy Levet</td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          VP Product Management, Accounting
        </td>
        <td class="text-secondary"><a href="#" class="text-reset">elevet4@senate.gov</a></td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          Admin
        </td>
        <td>
          <a href="#">Edit</a>
        </td>
      </tr>
    </tbody>
  </table>
</div>

Responsive tables

Use the .table-responsive class across each breakpoint for horizontal scrolling tables. If you want to create responsive tables up to a specific breakpoint, use .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl}. From that breakpoint and up, the table will behave normally, rather than scroll horizontally.

<table class="table table-responsive">
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>#</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 1</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 2</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 3</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 4</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 5</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 6</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 7</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 8</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 9</th>
      <th class="text-nowrap">Heading 10</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <th>1</th>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <th>2</th>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
      <td>Cell</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>

No wrap

If you don’t want the table cell content to wrap to another line, use the table-nowrap class.

<div class="table-responsive">
  <table
		class="table table-vcenter table-nowrap">
    <thead>
      <tr>
        <th>Name</th>
        <th>Title</th>
        <th>Email</th>
        <th>Role</th>
        <th></th>
        <th class="w-1"></th>
      </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
      <tr>
        <td>Paweł Kuna</td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
          UI Designer, Training
        </td>
        <td class="text-secondary"><a href="#" class="text-reset">paweluna@howstuffworks.com</a></td>
        <td class="text-secondary">
