bootstrap-select demo


You can view a live demo and some examples of how to use the various options here.

Quick start

Bootstrap-select requires jQuery v1.9.1+, Bootstrap’s dropdown.js component, and Bootstrap's CSS. If you're not already using Bootstrap in your project, a precompiled version of the Bootstrap v3.4.1 minimum requirements can be downloaded here. If using bootstrap-select with Bootstrap v4+, you'll also need Popper.js. For all of Bootstrap v4's requirements, see Getting started. A precompiled version of the requirements will be made available in an upcoming release of bootstrap-select.

Several quick start options are available:

  • Download the latest release.
  • Clone the repo:
    git clone
  • Install with npm:
    npm install bootstrap-select
  • Install with yarn:
    yarn add bootstrap-select
  • Install with Composer:
    composer require snapappointments/bootstrap-select
  • Install with NuGet:
    Install-Package bootstrap-select
  • Install with Bower:
    bower install bootstrap-select
  • Install via CDN (cdnjs or jsDelivr):
<!-- Latest compiled and minified CSS --><link rel="stylesheet" href="[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap-select.min.css"><!-- Latest compiled and minified JavaScript --><script src="[email protected]/dist/js/bootstrap-select.min.js"></script><!-- (Optional) Latest compiled and minified JavaScript translation files --><script src="[email protected]/dist/js/i18n/defaults-*.min.js"></script>

The CDN is updated after the release is made public, which means that there is a delay between the publishing of a release and its availability on the CDN.


Bootstrap 4 only works with bootstrap-select v1.13.0+. By default, bootstrap-select automatically detects the version of Bootstrap being used. However, there are some instances where the version detection won't work. See the documentation for more information.




Add the


class to your select elements to auto-initialize bootstrap-select.

html<select class="selectpicker">

Via JavaScript

// To style only selects with the my-select class $('.my-select').selectpicker();


js // To style all selects $('select').selectpicker();

If calling bootstrap-select via JavaScript, you will need to wrap your code in a [


]( block or place it at the bottom of the page (after the last instance of bootstrap-select).

$(function () { $('select').selectpicker(); });

Check out the documentation for further information.
