When a single value in a large table or text needs to be highlighted as a deviation the contextual alert can be used.
When and how to use it
Use a tooltip to give the user a description of the deviation.
Do's and don'ts
- Follow the whisper/talk/shout-rules when selecting colour.
- Don't over-use! Should only highlight very special situations.
- Don't highlight too large areas as the colour is quite sharp.
- Pattern: System alerts
- Component: Tooltip
