While not always necessary, sometimes you need to put your DOM in a box. For those situations, try the panel component.

Basic example

By default, all the .panel does is apply some basic border and padding to contain some content.

Basic panel example
<div class="panel panel-default">
  <div class="panel-body">
	Basic panel example
  </div>
</div>

			

Panel with heading

Easily add a heading container to your panel with .panel-heading. You may also include any <h1>-<h6> with a .panel-title class to add a pre-styled heading.

Panel content
<div class="panel panel-default">
  <div class="panel-heading">Panel heading without title</div>
  <div class="panel-body">
	Panel content
  </div>
</div>

<div class="panel panel-default">
  <div class="panel-heading">
	<h3 class="panel-title">Panel title</h3>
  </div>
  <div class="panel-body">
	Panel content
  </div>
</div>

			

Wrap buttons or secondary text in .panel-footer. Note that panel footers do not inherit colors and borders when using contextual variations as they are not meant to be in the foreground.

Panel content
<div class="panel panel-default">
  <div class="panel-body">
	Panel content
  </div>
  <div class="panel-footer">Panel footer</div>
</div>

			

Contextual alternatives

Like other components, easily make a panel more meaningful to a particular context by adding any of the contextual state classes.

<div class="panel panel-warning">...</div>
<div class="panel panel-danger">...</div>

			

With tables

Add any non-bordered .table within a panel for a seamless design. If there is a .panel-body, we add an extra border to the top of the table for separation.

Panel heading

Some default panel content here. Nulla vitae elit libero, a pharetra augue. Aenean lacinia bibendum nulla sed consectetur. Aenean eu leo quam. Pellentesque ornare sem lacinia quam venenatis vestibulum. Nullam id dolor id nibh ultricies vehicula ut id elit.

<div class="panel panel-default">
  <!-- Default panel contents -->
  <div class="panel-heading">Panel heading</div>
  <div class="panel-body">
	<p>...</p>
  </div>

  <!-- Table -->
  <table class="table">
	...
  </table>
</div>

			

If there is no panel body, the component moves from panel header to table without interruption.

With list groups

Easily include full-width list groups within any panel.

  • Cras justo odio
  • Dapibus ac facilisis in
  • Morbi leo risus
  • Porta ac consectetur ac
  • Vestibulum at eros
<div class="panel panel-default">
  <!-- Default panel contents -->
  <div class="panel-heading">Panel heading</div>
  <div class="panel-body">
	<p>...</p>
  </div>

  <!-- List group -->
  <ul class="list-group">
	<li class="list-group-item">Cras justo odio</li>
	<li class="list-group-item">Dapibus ac facilisis in</li>
	<li class="list-group-item">Morbi leo risus</li>
	<li class="list-group-item">Porta ac consectetur ac</li>
	<li class="list-group-item">Vestibulum at eros</li>
  </ul>
</div>
