Alerts

Examples

Provide contextual feedback messages for typical user actions with the handful of available and flexible alert messages. For inline dismissal, use the alerts jQuery plugin.

Wrap any text and an optional dismiss button in .alert and one of the four contextual classes (e.g., .alert-success) for basic alert messages.

No default class

Alerts don't have default classes, only base and modifier classes. A default gray alert doesn't make too much sense, so you're required to specify a type via contextual class. Choose from success, info, warning, or danger.

Well done! You successfully read this important alert message.
Heads up! This alert needs your attention, but it's not super important.
Warning! Best check yo self, you're not looking too good.
Oh snap! Change a few things up and try submitting again.
<div class="alert alert-success">...</div>
<div class="alert alert-info">...</div>
<div class="alert alert-warning">...</div>
<div class="alert alert-danger">...</div>

Dismissable alerts

Build on any alert by adding an optional .alert-dismissable and close button.

Warning! Best check yo self, you're not looking too good.
<div class="alert alert-warning alert-dismissable">
  <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button>
  <strong>Warning!</strong> Best check yo self, you're not looking too good.
</div>

Ensure proper behavior across all devices

Be sure to use the <button> element with the data-dismiss="alert" data attribute.

Use the .alert-link utility class to quickly provide matching colored links within any alert.

Well done! You successfully read this important alert message.
Heads up! This alert needs your attention, but it's not super important.
Warning! Best check yo self, you're not looking too good.

Alert messages alert.js

Example alerts

Add dismiss functionality to all alert messages with this plugin.

Holy guacamole! Best check yo self, you're not looking too good.

Oh snap! You got an error!

Change this and that and try again. Duis mollis, est non commodo luctus, nisi erat porttitor ligula, eget lacinia odio sem nec elit. Cras mattis consectetur purus sit amet fermentum.

Usage

Enable dismissal of an alert via JavaScript:

$(".alert").alert()

Markup

Just add data-dismiss="alert" to your close button to automatically give an alert close functionality.

<a class="close" data-dismiss="alert" href="#" aria-hidden="true">&times;</a>

Methods

$().alert()

Wraps all alerts with close functionality. To have your alerts animate out when closed, make sure they have the .fade and .in class already applied to them.

.alert('close')

Closes an alert.

$(".alert").alert('close')

Events

Bootstrap's alert class exposes a few events for hooking into alert functionality.

Event Type Description
close.bs.alert This event fires immediately when the close instance method is called.
closed.bs.alert This event is fired when the alert has been closed (will wait for CSS transitions to complete).
$('#my-alert').bind('closed.bs.alert', function () {
  // do something…
})
