Usage #

This section includes guidelines for designers and developers about the usage of this component in different contexts.

When to use #

  • To give a status update on a piece of information or action.
  • Marking something as “recommended” or “requiring attention.”
  • When you want to highlight that an object has been recently added.
  • When you want to highlight e.g. offers.

Variations #

This section describes the different component variations, their purpose, and when to use each variation.

Name Purpose
default Used to convey general information that isn’t critical. For example, you might show a status that tells that an item is “recommended.”
success Used to convey success states. For example, you might show a success status to indicate that changes were saved or something was completed.
danger Used to communicate problems that have to be resolved so that user can continue forward. This variation should be always used for e.g. highlighting errors.
warning Used to display badges that needs user’s attention and may require further steps.
subtle Usage similar to default, with de-emphasized appearance for situations, where default could create visual clutter or incorrectly give clicking affordance.
