How to Use Bootstrap Alert with icon :

1. To start using Bootstrap alert plugin , first of all load the jQuery and Bootstrap 4 framework into your HTML document.

<!-- jQuery -->
<script src=""></script>

<!-- Bootstrap CSS -->
<link href="" rel="stylesheet" integrity="sha384-ggOyR0iXCbMQv3Xipma34MD+dH/1fQ784/j6cY/iJTQUOhcWr7x9JvoRxT2MZw1T" crossorigin="anonymous">

<!-- Bootstrap JS -->
<script src="" integrity="sha384-JjSmVgyd0p3pXB1rRibZUAYoIIy6OrQ6VrjIEaFf/nJGzIxFDsf4x0xIM+B07jRM" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

3. After that, include the bootstrap-msg‘s CSS and JavaScript file in your website project.

<!-- Bootstrap Msg CSS -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/css/bootstrap-msg.css">

<!-- Bootsrap Msg Js -->
<script src="dist/js/bootstrap-msg.js"></script>

3. Also load the iconic font library that we’ll use in alert messages. In the example below we are going to use Font Awesome 4 icons. (You can also use other icons libraries mentioned on the demo page).

<!-- Font Awesome 4-->
<link href="" rel="stylesheet" integrity="sha384-wvfXpqpZZVQGK6TAh5PVlGOfQNHSoD2xbE+QkPxCAFlNEevoEH3Sl0sibVcOQVnN" crossorigin="anonymous">

4. Create HTML structure like below for basic use of alert messages.

        <div class="container" id="example" data-icon="fa">
            <div class="row">
                <div class="col-md-offset-3 col-md-6 col-sm-offset-2 col-sm-8">
                    <div class="page-header">
                        <h3>Show message with FontAwesome Icon</h3>
                    <div class="row">
                        <div class="col-sm-6">
                            <button class="btn btn-block btn-info" type="button"><i class="fa fa-info-circle"></i> Info</button>
                        <div class="col-sm-6">
                            <button class="btn btn-block btn-success" type="button"><i class="fa fa-check-circle"></i> Success</button>
                        <div class="col-sm-6">
                            <button class="btn btn-block btn-warning" type="button"><i class="fa fa-exclamation-circle"></i> Warning</button>
                        <div class="col-sm-6">
                            <button class="btn btn-block btn-danger" type="button"><i class="fa fa-times-circle"></i> Error</button>

4. Finally call the plugin in anonymous function (or in jQuery document ready function) with the following syntax.

$(function () {
	var example = $('#example');
	switch (example.attr('data-icon')) {
		case 'fa':
			Msg.icon = Msg.ICONS.FONTAWESOME;
		case 'bs':
			Msg.icon = Msg.ICONS.BOOTSTRAP;
			Msg.icon = {
				info: 'fa fa-bath',
				success: 'fa fa-anchor',
				warning: 'fa fa-bell-o',
				danger: 'fa fa-bolt'
	$('.btn').each(function () {
		var btn = $(this);
		var typeAlert = btn.attr('class').replace('btn btn-block btn-', '');
		var msgStr = 'This is ' + typeAlert + ' alert content';
		var iconMode = btn.closest('fieldset').attr('data-icon');

		btn.on('click', function (e) {

			Msg.iconMode = iconMode;
