Usage

Feel free to mix input groups and dropdowns with button groups in your toolbars. Similar to the example above, you’ll likely need some utility classes though to space things properly.

Sizing

Note, if you want smaller or larger buttons or controls, set the size prop directly on the <b-button-group>, <b-input-group>, and <b-dropdown> components.

Justify

Make the toolbar span the maximum available width, by increasing spacing between the button groups, input groups and dropdowns, by setting the prop justify.

Keyboard Navigation

Enable optional keyboard navigation by setting the prop key-nav.

Keypress Action
LEFT or UP Move to the previous non-disabled item in the toolbar
RIGHT or DOWN Move to the next non-disabled item in the toolbar
SHIFT+LEFT or SHIFT+UP Move to the first non-disabled item in the toolbar
SHIFT+RIGHT or SHIFT+DOWN Move to the last non-disabled item in the toolbar
TAB Move to the next control on the page
SHIFT+TAB Move to the previous control on the page

Caution: If you have text or text-like inputs in your toolbar, leave keyboard navigation off, as it is not possible to use key presses to jump out of a text (or test-like) inputs.
