StatusLight

Status lights are used to color code categories and labels commonly found in data visualization. When status lights have a semantic meaning, they should use semantic variant colors.

Example#


<StatusLight variant="positive">Ready</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="positive">Ready</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="positive">
  Ready
</StatusLight>

Content#


A visible label can be provided by passing children. To indicate status, use the variant prop.

<StatusLight variant="positive">Semantic color</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="yellow">Label color</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="positive">
  Semantic color
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="yellow">Label color</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="positive">
  Semantic color
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="yellow">
  Label color
</StatusLight>

Accessibility#

If a visible label isn't specified, an aria-label must be provided for accessibility. If the StatusLight is labeled by a separate element, an aria-labelledby prop must be provided using the id of the labeling element instead.

In cases where the status changes at runtime, it may be appropriate to add role="status" so that the status change will be announced politely by assistive technology.

Internationalization#

To internationalize a StatusLight, a localized string should be set as the child content of the StatusLight. For languages that are read right-to-left (e.g. Hebrew and Arabic), the StatusLight is automatically flipped.

When status lights have a semantic meaning, they should use semantic colors. Use the appropriate color to indicate status as follows.

<StatusLight variant="neutral">
  Gray: Archived, Deleted, Paused, Draft, Not Started, Ended
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="positive">
  Green: Approved, Complete, Success, New, Purchased, Licensed
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="notice">
  Orange: Needs Approval, Pending, Scheduled, Syncing, Indexing, Processing
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="negative">
  Red: Error, Alert, Rejected, Failed
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="info">
  Blue: Active, In Use, Live, Published
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="neutral">

</StatusLight>

When status lights are used to color code categories and labels commonly found in data visualization, they use label colors. The ideal usage for these is when there are 8 or fewer categories or labels being color coded. Use them in the following order to ensure the greatest possible color differences for multiple forms of color blindness:

<StatusLight variant="indigo">Indigo</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="celery">Celery</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="magenta">Magenta</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="yellow">Yellow</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="fuchsia">Fuchsia</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="seafoam">Seafoam</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="chartreuse">Chartreuse</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="purple">Purple</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="indigo">Indigo</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="celery">Celery</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="magenta">Magenta</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="yellow">Yellow</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="fuchsia">Fuchsia</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="seafoam">Seafoam</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="chartreuse">Chartreuse</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="purple">Purple</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="indigo">
  Indigo
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="celery">
  Celery
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="magenta">

</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="yellow">

</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="fuchsia">
  Fuchsia
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="seafoam">
  Seafoam
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="chartreuse">
  Chartreuse
</StatusLight>

</StatusLight>

Disabled#

Use the isDisabled prop to match the state of a containing element. Note that the isDisabled prop alters the visual style of the StatusLight, but does not convey any state information to assistive technology.

<StatusLight variant="yellow" isDisabled>
  Yellow
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight variant="yellow" isDisabled>
  Yellow
</StatusLight>
<StatusLight
