Bootstrap Button Sizes

Use the .btn-lg class for large buttons or .btn-sm class for small buttons:

<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary btn-lg">Large</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Default</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary btn-sm">Small</button>

Bootstrap Active/Disabled Buttons

A button can be set to an active (appear pressed) or a disabled (unclickable) state:

The class .active makes a button appear pressed, and the disabled the attribute makes a button unclickable. Note that <a> elements do not support the disabled attribute and must therefore use the .disabled class to make it visually appear disabled.

<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary active">Active Primary</button>
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary" disabled>Disabled Primary</button>
<a href="#" class="btn btn-primary disabled">Disabled Link</a>
