Bootstrap Alert Tutorial


The alerts are from all these components you even really don't think about until you really get to require them. They are used for presenting prompt in time comment for the user interacting with the website hopefully directing his or hers focus to a specific direction or evoking special actions.

The alerts are most commonly used together with forms to give the user a recommendation if a area has been filled in improperly, which is the proper format expected or which is the status of the submission just after the submit button has been pressed.

As most of the elements in the Bootstrap framework the alerts also do have a well-kept predefined visual aspect and semantic classes that are used according the particular scenario in which the Bootstrap Alert has been shown on display. As it's an alert notification it is very important to obtain user's interest but however leave him in the zone of comfort nevertheless it might even be an error report. ( check this out)

This gets fulfilled by the use of delicate pale colors each being intuitively attached to the semantic of the message information like green for Success, Light Blue for regular details, Light yellow seeking for user's interest and Mild red mentioning there is in fact something wrong.

Bootstrap alert  some examples

  <strong>Heads up!</strong> This alert needs your attention, but it's not super important.
<div class="alert alert-warning" role="alert">
  <strong>Warning!</strong> Better check yourself, you're not looking too good.
<div class="alert alert-danger" role="alert">

Colour of the url

It really might actually not be noticed at a look but the font color also is in fact following this color design as well-- just the color tones are much much darker so get intuitively seen as black but the truth is it's not exactly so.

Exact same works not only for the alert message itself but as well for the links incorporated in it-- there are link classes taking away the outline and painting the anchor elements in the correct color so they fit the overall alert message look.

Additional information and facts for alerts

A factor to note-- the colors offer their clear interpretation only for those who actually get to notice them. It's a good thing to either make sure the visible text itself carries the meaning of the alert well enough or to eventually add some additional descriptions to only be seen by the screen readers in order to grant the page's accessibility.

As well as links and simple HTML tags like strong for example the alert elements in Bootstrap 4 can also contain Headings and paragraphs for the circumstances when you want to display a bit longer web content ( read here).

  <p>Aww yeah, you successfully read this important alert message. This example text is going to run a bit longer so that you can see how spacing within an alert works with this kind of content.</p>
  <p class="mb-0">Whenever you need to, be sure to use margin utilities to keep things nice and tidy.</p>
