For faster mobile-friendly development, use these utility classes for showing and hiding content by device via media query. Also included are utility classes for toggling content when printed.

Try to use these on a limited basis and avoid creating entirely different versions of the same site. Instead, use them to complement each device’s presentation.

Available classes

Use a single or combination of the available classes for toggling content across viewport breakpoints.

Extra small devicesPhones (<768px) Small devicesTablets (≥768px) Medium devicesDesktops (≥992px) Large devicesDesktops (≥1200px)
.visible-xs-* Visible
.visible-sm-* Visible
.visible-md-* Visible
.visible-lg-* Visible
.hidden-xs Visible Visible Visible
.hidden-sm Visible Visible Visible
.hidden-md Visible Visible Visible
.hidden-lg Visible Visible Visible

As of v3.2.0, the .visible-*-* classes for each breakpoint come in three variations, one for each CSS display property value listed below.

Group of classes CSS display
.visible-*-block display: block;
.visible-*-inline display: inline;
.visible-*-inline-block display: inline-block;

So, for extra small (xs) screens for example, the available .visible-*-* classes are: .visible-xs-block, .visible-xs-inline, and.visible-xs-inline-block.

The classes .visible-xs, .visible-sm, .visible-md, and .visible-lg also exist, but are deprecated as of v3.2.0. They are approximately equivalent to .visible-*-block, except with additional special cases for toggling <table>-related elements.
