A different thing you can do with Bootstrap 4 buttons in making them display outlined instead of being filled with a color. Use Bootstrap 4’s .btn-outline classes to apply the semantic color to the outline only.
The output of this example looks like below image.
Note that <a> elements do not support the disabled attribute and must, therefore, use the .disabled class to make it visually appear disabled.
#7: Toggle Checkboxes & Radio Buttons
You can apply the Bootstrap 4 button styles to checkboxes and radio buttons to provide a toggle feature. To do this, nest the radio buttons or checkboxes inside a <label> element that has the applicable button class applied. Also, nest the elements inside a .btn-group element that also has data-toggle="buttons" applied.
