Use in-page alerts to attract the user's attention. Alerts are often displayed following a user interaction or system event. The level of attention is dependent on the importance of the alert.
In-page alerts come in standard and compact. The standard variant can be used to deliver an alert for a section or overall context. The compact variant can be used for in-line alerts or where the alert needs to be isolated, such as in forms where it relates to just one field.
In-page alert are styled according to their purpose:
Designed to be less intrusive or interruptive than other levels of alert:
The family of alerts is designed with a consistent layout to aid comprehension of what they are and how they work.
They are designed to look 'not always present', to draw the user's attention.
The type and urgency of the alert is communicated through colour and the icon used.
The icons used are industry standard, with the exception of the warning and critical icons which are somewhat interchangeable. Both the warning and critical icons are perceived as more important to aid the user's comprehension.
The alerts are not dismissible.
All components are responsive and meet WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility guidelines.
