Example Alerts

Add dismiss functionality to all alert messages with this plugin.

When using a .close button, it must be the first child of the .alert-dismissible and no text content may come before it in the markup.


Just add data-dismiss="alert" to your close button to automatically give an alert close functionality. Closing an alert removes it from the DOM.

<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-label="Close">
  <span aria-hidden="true">&times;</span>

To have your alerts use animation when closing, make sure they have the .fade and .in classes already applied to them.



Makes an alert listen for click events on descendant elements which have the data-dismiss="alert" attribute. (Not necessary when using the data-api's auto-initialization.)


Closes an alert by removing it from the DOM. If the .fade and .in classes are present on the element, the alert will fade out before it is removed.


Bootstrap's alert plugin exposes a few events for hooking into alert functionality.

Event Type Description This event fires immediately when the close instance method is called. This event is fired when the alert has been closed (will wait for CSS transitions to complete).
$('#myAlert').on('', function () {
