Tooltips are floating labels that briefly explain the function of a user interface element. They can be triggered when merchants hover, focus, tap, or click.
Use only when necessary to provide an explanation for an interface element.
<Tooltip content="This order has shipping labels."> <Link>Order #1001</Link> </Tooltip>
Put the merchant first by identifying the problem they face and the component that helps them solve it.
Merchants who use Shopify represent a range of levels of experience and familiarity with using software. It can be challenging to build experiences that are clear to all merchants, all the time.
Tooltips can provide additional explanations to merchants who need more information or help without cluttering up the interface.
- Provide useful, additional information or clarification.
- Succinctly describe or expand on the element they point to.
- Be provided for icon-only buttons or a button with an associated keyboard shortcut.
- Not be used to communicate critical information, including errors in forms or other interaction feedback.
- Not contain any links or buttons.
- Be used sparingly. If you’re building something that requires a lot of tooltips, work on clarifying the design and the language in the experience.
- Be written in sentence case
- Be concise and scannable
- Not be used to communicate error messages or important account information
