How to create five equal columns in Bootstrap ?
Creating any number of equal columns in a ‘row’ was never as easier as it is now of Bootstrap 4.0+. With the introduction of ‘flexbox’ approach to the grid system, designers don’t have to worry about adding additional CSS to make it work. Here’s how it is done.
- Go to the Bootstrap site and get the latest Bootstrap files onto your computer.
- Write a basic HTML template using these files.
- Once everything is set up, create a simple ‘container’ div inside <body> tag.
- Inside the ‘container’, create another div with class ‘row’ and as the name suggests, we are creating a row for handling columns. Populate the ‘row’ div with 5 divs with class ‘col’. Because Bootstrap 4.0+ grid system has now shifted to Flexbox, the columns will arrange by themselves into five equally sized DOM elements.
To distinguish between the columns, a small margin is added to each of the columns.
