A list is a record of information that makes finding items easy using bullets. 

There are 3 types of lists supported by Bootstrap are:

  • Unordered Lists: In Unordered lists, items are marked with bullets.
  • Ordered Lists: In Ordered lists items are marked with numerical bullets such as 1,2, i, ii, etc.
  • Definition Lists: In Definition lists, items are defined with its description.

Let’s see the implementation of the above list.

Example 1: In this example, we will use Unordered lists. In Unordered lists items are marked with bullets. Unordered lists is created using <ul> tag and then items are listed using <li> tag. 

HTML




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content=
        "width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  
    <title>Bootstrap 4 Unstyled List</title>
  
    <link rel="stylesheet" href=
    </script>
    <script src=
    </script>
</head>
  
<body>
    <h2 class="mb-3">Unordered List</h2>
    <ul>
        <li>Chocolates</li>
        <li>Biscuits</li>
        <ul>
            <li>Jim-Jam</li>
            <li>Oreo</li>
        </ul>
        <li>Fruits</li>
        <li>Gifts</li>
    </ul>
</body>
  
</html>


 



Output:

Explanation: In above example, unordered list is created and items are marked with bullets. The items with small black circles(Disc bullets) are items of unordered list and items with circles are items of Biscuits. Hence, we can also create list in list.

Example 2: In this example, we will use Ordered lists. In Ordered lists items are marked with numerical bullets such as 1, 2, i, ii. Ordered lists is created using <ol> tag and list items are started with<li> tag.

</head>
  
<body>
    <h2 class="mb-3">Ordered List</h2>
    <ol>
        <li>Chocolates</li>
        <li>Biscuits</li>
        <ol type="i">
            <li>Jim-Jam</li>
            <li>Oreo</li>
        </ol>

</html>
