Popovers are floating, dismissible containers for small to medium amounts of content and interactions.
Popover is useful for providing non-critical interactions in space restrained workflows, which float over other elements in the z-axis. Avoid putting large amounts of content and using scrollbars in Popovers. Popover positioning can be automatic or set manually by using the
overlay properties respectfully.
It is recommended to place Popovers shallowly in the DOM.
- Secondary workflow support that can be invoked from an action
- Descriptions of content
- A few contextual actions or inputs to modify an element
- Clicking an element to show date, author, or other relevant details
Below are important guidelines on using the Popover component.
|Moves focus to next focusable element. If the current focus is the last element and |
|Moves focus to previous focusable element. If the current focus is the first element and |
|Closes the component.|
Popover text should be short and to the point, supporting the content where it was invoked from. For complex or crucial content, please consider Modal.
- Recommended character maximum: 450
