Make a group of buttons stretch at equal sizes to span the entire width of its parent. Also works with button dropdowns within the button group.

Handling borders

Due to the specific HTML and CSS used to justify buttons (namely display: table-cell), the borders between them are doubled. In regular button groups, margin-left: -1px is used to stack the borders instead of removing them. However, margin doesn't work with display: table-cell. As a result, depending on your customizations to Bootstrap, you may wish to remove or re-color the borders.

IE8 and borders

Internet Explorer 8 doesn't render borders on buttons in a justified button group, whether it's on <a> or <button> elements. To get around that, wrap each button in another .btn-group.

See #12476 for more information.

With <a> elements

Just wrap a series of .btns in .btn-group.btn-group-justified.

<div class="btn-group btn-group-justified" role="group" aria-label="...">
  ...
</div>

Links acting as buttons

If the <a> elements are used to act as buttons – triggering in-page functionality, rather than navigating to another document or section within the current page – they should also be given an appropriate role="button".

With <button> elements

To use justified button groups with <button> elements, you must wrap each button in a button group. Most browsers don't properly apply our CSS for justification to <button> elements, but since we support button dropdowns, we can work around that.

<div class="btn-group btn-group-justified" role="group" aria-label="...">
  <div class="btn-group" role="group">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Left</button>
  </div>
  <div class="btn-group" role="group">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Middle</button>
  </div>
  <div class="btn-group" role="group">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Right</button>
  </div>
</div>
