Responsive table

Across every breakpoint, use .table-responsive for horizontally scrolling tables. Use .table-responsive{-sm|-md|-lg|-xl|-xxl} as needed to create responsive tables up to a particular breakpoint.

Usage guidelines

Table should be used:

  • When you want to show tabular information, such as statistics.
  • For displaying directories where content of similar nature and structure are grouped together.

Table should not be used:

  • For complex data visualisation, you may want to use inforgraphics or bars and charts.
  • For dashboard displays. Table data should follow a consistant structure with logical headers, rows and columns.

Usability guidelines

Keep tables simple
Tables are useful when displaying data and complex information. Try to use minimal visual styling to surface information easily.

Consider mobile applications
As table rows can be long in nature, do consider if your content requires to be in a table.

Enable sorting
Do enable sorting where applicable as this will help users move through content within the table.
