Bootstrap 4 | Alerts

We often see certain alerts on some websites before or after completing an action. These alert messages are highlighted texts that are important to take in consideration while performing a process. Bootstrap allows showing these alert messages on the website using predefined classes.

The .alert class followed by contextual classes are used to display the alert message on website. The alert classes are: .alert-success, .alert-info, .alert-warning, .alert-danger, .alert-primary, .alert-secondary, .alert-light and .alert-dark.

Syntax:

<div class="alert> Contents... <div>

Example:

filter_none
