Utility Classes

This site includes a handful of helpful utility classes to add certain behaviors to your elements.


Float Classes

You can change the float behavior of an element by adding .left or .right to an HTML element. To clear floats, add the class .clearfix to the parent element.

HTML

<div class="panel clearfix">
     <a class="button right">Float Right</a>
     <a class="button left">Float Left</a>
</div>

Radius and Rounded

The .radius and .round classes allow you to easily apply a border-radius to a UI-element. Adding the class to a button group will apply the border radius only to the outside corners.

HTML

<div class="alert-box [radius round]" data-alert>Alert<a href="#" class="close">&times;</ a></div>
<div class="progress [radius round]"> < span class="meter" style="width:70%;"></span></div>
<a href="#" class="button [radius round]">Button</a>
<span class="label [radius round]">Label</span>
<span data-tooltip class="[radius round]" title= "Tooltip">Tooltip</span>

Text Align Classes

You can change the text alignment of an element by adding .text-left, .text-right, .text-center or .text-justify to an element.

Adding a size to the front of a text alignment class will cause it to only be applied on that size screen or larger (ex. .medium-text-center will center text for everything except small screens). Adding a size and only will apply the text alignment just for that media query (ex. .medium-only-text-center will center text just for medium screens).

HTML

<p class= "text-left"> <!-- text goes here --> </p>
<p class= "text-right"> <!-- text goes here --> </p>
<p class= "text-center"> <!-- text goes here --> </p>
<p class= "text-justify"> <!-- text goes here --> </p>
