Adding an asterisk to required fields in Bootstrap

bootstrap

This is pretty useful in giving a visual indication to the user when a form field is required.

The CSS:

.form-group.required .control-label:after {
  content:"*";
  color:red;
}

Then in your HTML:

<form>
  <div class="form-group required">
    <label class="control-label">Required Field</label>
    ...
  </div>
</form>

There will now be a nice little “*” after the label for “Required Field”.
