Box

React Bootstrap 5 Box

React Bootstrap 5 boxes are layout components that assist in the development of CSS utility components.

Depending on the value of the 'tag' prop, the React Bootstrap 5 Box component can become any element from 'React.ElementType' such as 'div','span', 'image', 'video', and so on. A 'div' element is the default.

Importing the React Bootstrap 5 Box component

You begin by importing 'CDBBox' into your project to use the React Bootstrap 5 Box component.

js
import { CDBBox } from 'cdbreact';

The 'tag' prop accepts a value that represents the HTML element that the 'CDBBox' component is trying to replicate.

js
import React from 'react';
import { CDBBox, CDBContainer } from 'cdbreact';
export const Box = () => {
return (
<CDBContainer>
<CDBBox tag="span">Span</CDBBox>
<CDBBox tag="div">Div</CDBBox>
<CDBBox tag="p">Paragraph</CDBBox>
<CDBBox tag="section">Section</CDBBox>
</CDBContainer>
);
};

Display

You can use any display CSS style from Bootstrap 4 to the 'CDBox' component with the React Bootstrap 5 component, such as 'd-none', 'd-flex', and so on.

Display FLex
Display Block
Display Inline
js
import React from 'react';
import { CDBBox, CDBContainer } from 'cdbreact';
export const Box = () => {
return (
<CDBContainer>
<CDBBox display="flex">Display Flex</CDBBox>
<CDBBox display="block">Display Block</CDBBox>
<CDBBox display="none">Dislpay None</CDBBox>
<CDBBox display="inline">Display Inline</CDBBox>
</CDBContainer>
);
};

Flex

With React Bootstrap, we can apply CSS flexbox styles. To accomplish this, we adjust the 'display' prop on the 'CDBBox' component.

Just like in ordinary CSS Flex, we can utilize props like 'justifyContent', 'flex', 'alignItems', 'alignContent', and 'alignSelf'.
