Internet Explorer is not supported by Design Library

The last version of Internet Explorer, version 11, was released on October 17, 2013. This is a very long time ago when taking into account the rapid development of web technologies. These days it is often difficult and time consuming to get modern technologies to work well in this old browser. More and more frameworks are dropping support, and even Microsoft themselves has announced that they will fully drop support for IE in their own services in 2021.

Consequently, we have decided to not include support for IE in the Design Library website.

Luckily, there are modern options in active development. Please use Firefox, Edge or Chrome instead.

Contextual alert

Use a contextual alert to highlight a piece of information, often a deviation, with a contrasting background.


Short description

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 alert colours to convey the right attention, see Alert ribbons.
  • Don't over-use! Should only highlight very special situations.
  • Don't highlight too large areas as the colour is quite sharp.
