When and how to use it

This component has two potential usage areas:

  1. Signaling a general error in a form: for example an invalid combination of multiple fields.
  2. Summarising all fields that have occured within a form when trying to submit, including links to the individual fields containning errors.

It's placed close to the submit-button.


Triggered by submit on a form.

Do's and don'ts

  • It should include links to the fields that contain the problems.
  • It should not be used to give general instructions prior to submitting a form.
