Alert group


Static alert group

These alerts appear on page load and are discoverable from within the normal page content flow, and will not be announced individually/explicitly to assistive technology.

  • Success alert:Success alert

  • Info alert:Info alert

Toast alert group

Alerts asynchronously appended into dynamic AlertGroups with isLiveRegion will be announced to assistive technology at the moment the change happens, following the strategy used for aria-atomic, which defaults to false. This means only changes of type "addition" will be announced.

Singular dynamic alert group

This alert will appear in the page, most likely in response to a user action.

    Multiple dynamic alert group

    These alerts will appear in the page, most likely in response to a user action.

    Async alert group

    This shows how an alert could be triggered by an asynchronous event in the application. Note how you can customize how the alert will be announced to assistive technology. See the alert group accessibility tab for more information.
