Borders: Borders are generally used to display an outline around a box or table cell or any other HTML element. In Bootstrap, there are different classes available to add or remove borders.

  • .border : This class adds a border all around the element.
  • .border-top : This class adds a border on the top edge of the element.
  • .border-left : This class adds a border on the left edge of the element.
  • .border-right : This class adds a border on the right of the element.
  • .border-bottom : This class adds a border on the bottom of the element.

Subtractive Border Classes
 

  • .border-0 : This class removes border from all around the element if exists.
  • .border-top-0 : This class removes the border from the top edge of the element if exists.
  • .border-left-0 : This class removes the border from the left edge of the element if exists.
