Offcanvas

Offcanvas is similar to modals (hidden by default and shown when activated), except that is often used as a sidebar navigation menu.

  </div>
  <div class="offcanvas-body">

Example Explained

The .offcanvas class creates the offcanvas sidebar.

The .offcanvas-start class positions the offcanvas, and makes it 400px wide. See examples below for more positioning classes.

The .offcanvas-title class ensures proper margins and line-height.

Then, add your content inside the .offcanvas-body class.

To open the offcanvas sidebar, you must use a <button> or an <a> element that points to the id of the .offcanvas container (#demo in our example).

To open the offcanvas sidebar with an <a> element, you can point to #demo with the href attribute, instead of data-bs-target attribute.



Offcanvas Position

Use the .offcanvas-start|end|top|bottom to position the offcanvas to the left, right, top or bottom:

<div class="offcanvas offcanvas-end" id="demo">

Dark OffCanvas Menu

Use the .text-bg-dark class to create a dark offcanvas menu.

Tip: We have also added the .btn-close-white class to .btn-close, to create a white close button that looks nice with the dark background:

Example

<div class="offcanvas offcanvas-end" id="demo">
<button type="button" class="btn-close btn-close-white" data-bs-dismiss="offcanvas"></button>
