Bootstrap provides us with various classes for creating different styles of the spinner to indicate the loading state. We can also modify the appearance, size, and placement of the spinners with the classes provided by Bootstrap.

Buttons with border spinner: We can place the border spinner within the button by using the spinner-border class within a <span> tag which is in turn nested inside a <button> tag having Bootstrap Button classes as given below.

HTML

<head>
    <!-- Bootstrap CSS -->

        crossorigin="anonymous">
    <title>Bootstrap | Spinner</title>
    <style>
        h1 {
            color: green;
            text-align: center;
        }
        div {
            margin-top: 10px;
        }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
    <div class="container">
        <h1>GeeksForGeeks</h1>
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-secondary" disabled>
            <span class="spinner-border spinner-border-sm"
                role="status" aria-hidden="true"></span>
            <span class="sr-only">Loading</span>
        </button>
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" disabled>
            <span class="spinner-border spinner-border-sm"
                role="status" aria-hidden="true"></span>
            Processing...
        </button>
    </div>
</body>
</html>

Note: We have placed “disabled” attribute within the <button> tag to deactivate it and used “role” and “aria-hidden” attributes within <span> tag for accessibility purposes.

Output:

button-spinner-border

Buttons with growing spinner: We can place the growing spinner within the button by using the spinner-grow class within a <span> tag which is in turn nested inside a <button> tag having Bootstrap Button classes as given below.
