Containers in Bootstrap with examples
In bootstrap, the container is used to set the content’s margin. It contains row elements and the row elements are container of columns. This is known as the grid system.
There are two container classes in bootstrap:
Let’s look at each of the above two class in detail with examples:
- .container: The .container class provides a responsive fixed width container.
In the below example, the div with class “container” will have a fixed left and right margin and will not take the complete width of it’s parent or the viewport.
- .container-fluid: The .container-fluid class provides a full-width container which spans the entire width of the viewport.
In the below example, the div with class “container-fluid” will take-up the complete width of the viewport and will expand or shrink when ever the viewport is resized.
