Badge is a new UI element. It provides users with a visual clue to help them discover additional relevant content.

Table of contents

  • Includes bootstrap view
  • Includes bootstrap library
  • Includes css in html page
  • Define its class name

This article will guide you to adding badge with glyphicon in Bootstrap with example.

Step 1: Includes bootstrap view

To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head>.

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

Step 2: Includes bootstrap library

First of all, load the Bootstrap framework CSS into the head tag of your webpage.

<!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css">
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

Step 3: Define its class name

After that, create the badge with glyphicon with a class name .badge glyphicon glyphicon-time.

  <div class="container">
     <h3>Bootstrap badge with glyphicon example</h3>
    <span class="badge">13434 <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-time"></span></span>
  </div>

Step 4: Includes css in html page

Here we will use css to get the badge glyphicon color to the right place.

      <style>
.badge > .glyphicon {
  background: red;
  padding: 5px;
  border-radius:50%;
}
    </style>

Example.

Let’s look at the following example to understand how it basically works:

 <!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css">
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

  <style>

.badge > .glyphicon {
  background: red;
  padding: 5px;
  border-radius:50%;
}
  </style>
</head>

<body>
  <div class="container">
     <h3>Bootstrap badge with glyphicon example</h3>
    <span class="badge">13434 <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-time"></span></span>
  </div>
</body>

</html> 

Check the output of the above code example.
