Grouped buttons

To created grouped buttons wrap them in an element, or use a list, given the class uibutton-group.

<div class="uibutton-group">
<a class="uibutton" href="#">Dashboard</a>
<a class="uibutton" href="#">Inbox</a>
<a class="uibutton" href="#">Account</a>
<a class="uibutton" href="#">Logout</a>
</div>
<ul class="uibutton-group">
<li><a class="uibutton" href="#">Dashboard</a></li>
<li><a class="uibutton" href="#">Inbox</a></li>
<li><a class="uibutton" href="#">Account</a></li>
<li><a class="uibutton" href="#">Logout</a></li>
</ul>

Mixed groups

To display a toolbar of buttons and grouped buttons, use a wrapping element given the class uibutton-toolbar.

<div class="uibutton-toolbar">
<a class="uibutton" href="#">Mark as unread</a>
<div class="uibutton-group">
<a class="uibutton" href="#">Report spam</a>
<a class="uibutton" href="#">Delete</a>
</div>
<a class="uibutton" href="#">Unsubscribe</a>
</div>
