Tooltip

    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.

    Examples

    Down Arrow

    Use only when necessary to provide an explanation for an interface element.


    Best practices

    Tooltips should:

    • 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.
