The button group class/feature in the Bootstrap framework (class="btn-group") is useful.

To be able to use something similar without importing the Bootstrap framework, this is one option of functionality similar to Bootstrap's button set feature:

<!DOCTYPE html>
        /* Button Sets -- Radio Elements */
        .button-set {
            overflow: auto;
            display: inline-flex;
            user-select: none;
        /* Show/Hide Relevant Elements */
        .button-set label input[type=radio] {
            display: none;
        .button-set label span.chk {
            visibility: hidden;
        .button-set label input:checked ~ span.chk {
            visibility: visible;
        /* Fixed Cosmetic */
        .button-set label {
            padding: 0.75em 1.50em;
            font-weight: bold;
            transition: background-color 0.2s;
        .button-set label:first-child {
            border-radius: 8px 0 0 8px;
        .button-set label:last-child {
            border-radius: 0 8px 8px 0;
        .button-set label:hover {
            cursor: pointer;
        /* Variable Cosmetic */
        .button-set {}
        .button-set label {
            background-color: Navy;
            color: white;
        .button-set label:hover {
            background-color: DeepSkyBlue;
        .button-set label span.chk {
            font-size: 1em;
            color: lime;
    <h2>Not Bootstrap Button Set</h2>
    <p>Here's a button set that uses Not Bootstrap.</p>
    <hr />
    <label for="comething">Some Field Name</label>
    <div class="button-set">
            <input type="radio" name="type_id" value="1">
            <span class="chk">✓</span> Option 1
            <input type="radio" name="type_id" value="2">
            <span class="chk">✓</span> Option 2
            <input type="radio" name="type_id" value="3">
            <span class="chk">✓</span> Option 3
            <input type="radio" name="type_id" value="4">
            <span class="chk">✓</span> Option 4
    <hr />
    <p><em>The end.</em></p>
