    <b-container>
      <b-row>
        <b-col md="4">
            <b-list-group>
                <b-list-group-item>SortoutCode</b-list-group-item>

                <b-list-group-item>Infinitbility</b-list-group-item>
                <b-list-group-item>Test</b-list-group-item>
            </b-list-group>
        </b-col>
      </b-row>
    </b-container>
  </div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  name: "FirstComponent",
};
</script>

<template>
  <div class="hello">

In the actionable item, it shows an extra hover effect to BootstrapVue.And on the click, it set it to indicate an active selection on a contextual list group item. let’s see the example of variants to an item from the listing.

<template>
  <div class="hello">
    <b-container>
      <b-row>
        <b-col md="4">
            <b-list-group>
                <b-list-group-item href="#" variant="success">SortoutCode</b-list-group-item>
                <b-list-group-item href="#" variant="success">Aguidehub</b-list-group-item>
                <b-list-group-item href="#" variant="success">Infinitbility</b-list-group-item>
