Display Utilities

Hide or show elements at various screen sizes and more with the following display utilities.

Change the value of the display property with our responsive display utility classes. We purposely support only a subset of all possible values for display. Classes can be combined for various effects as you need.


Display utility classes that apply to all breakpoints, from xs to lg, have no breakpoint abbreviation in them. This is because those classes are applied from min-width: 0; and up, and thus are not bound by a media query. The remaining breakpoints, however, do include a breakpoint abbreviation.

As such, the classes are named using the format:

  • .d-{value} for xs
  • .d-{breakpoint}-{value} for sm, md and lg.

Where value is one of:

  • none
  • inline
  • inline-block
  • block
  • table
  • table-cell
  • table-row
  • flex
  • inline-flex


<div class="d-inline p-2 bg-primary text-white">d-inline</div>
<div class="d-inline p-2 bg-info text-white">d-inline</div>


<div class="d-block p-2 bg-primary text-white">d-block</div>
<div class="d-block p-2 bg-info text-white">d-block</div>

Hiding Elements

For faster mobile-friendly development, use responsive display classes for showing and hiding elements by device. Avoid creating entirely different versions of the same site, instead hide elements responsively for each screen size.

To hide elements simply use the .d-none class or one of the .d-{sm,md,lg}-none classes for any responsive screen variation.

Screen Size Class
Hidden on all .d-none
Hidden only on xs .d-none .d-sm-block
Hidden only on sm .d-sm-none .d-md-block
Hidden only on md .d-md-none .d-lg-block
Hidden only on lg .d-lg-none
Visible on all .d-block
Visible only on xs .d-block .d-sm-none
Visible only on sm .d-none .d-sm-block .d-md-none
Visible only on md .d-none .d-md-block .d-lg-none
Visible only on lg .d-none .d-lg-block
