Buttons

Anatomy

Button anatomy

Anatomy: icon + label + indicator
Icon: a visual associated with the button label and it is optional
Indicator: a symbol that represents the behaviour of the button, such as navigation, download, expand, collapse, and more

Types

Buttons submit data from a user input. You commonly find buttons at the bottom of forms or simple field box groups, such as a search function. You may also use a button as a call-to-action or as navigation links.

Primary versus secondary. When buttons appear side-by-side, a decision must be made about which is the primary and secondary action.

  

Variations

Few exceptions exist where the size of a button changes.
