Bootstrap | Close Icon for dismissing content with Examples
  • Last Updated : 15 Jan, 2019

The close icon in bootstrap is a utility, that is used to dismiss any content (e.g., Alerts, Modals, Popovers). It is represented by a generic cross/close icon.

Below is a sample HTML code including a close icon for dismissing content in bootstrap:




<!doctype html>
<html>
    <head>
        <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.0.0/css/bootstrap.min.css" integrity="sha384-Gn5384xqQ1aoWXA+058RXPxPg6fy4IWvTNh0E263XmFcJlSAwiGgFAW/dAiS6JXm" crossorigin="anonymous">        
          
        <!-- Optional JavaScript -->
        <!-- jQuery first, then Popper.js, 
             then Bootstrap JS -->
        <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.slim.min.js" integrity="sha384-q8i/X+965DzO0rT7abK41JStQIAqVgRVzpbzo5smXKp4YfRvH+8abtTE1Pi6jizo" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
        <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/popper.js/1.14.3/umd/popper.min.js" integrity="sha384-ZMP7rVo3mIykV+2+9J3UJ46jBk0WLaUAdn689aCwoqbBJiSnjAK/l8WvCWPIPm49" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
        <script src="https://stackpath.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.1.3/js/bootstrap.min.js" integrity="sha384-ChfqqxuZUCnJSK3+MXmPNIyE6ZbWh2IMqE241rYiqJxyMiZ6OW/JmZQ5stwEULTy" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
        <title>Close Icon!</title>
    </head>
      
    <body class="container mt-5">
          
        <!--Close Icon-->
        <button type="button" class="close">
        <span>×</span>
        </button>
      
    </body>
</html>                    

Note: The data-dismiss attribute can be used with button tag to target the component to dismiss such as a modal or an alert.
