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.


There are several types of feedback depending on the context, but the common purpose of all types of feedback is to communicate some kind of status or information to make the user feel confident in what they are doing – or should be doing if something is wrong.


Feedback can be triggered by something the user does, or show what is going on in a system. When you choosing among types of feedback, ask yourself what triggers the feedback, is it crucial or can it be disregarded, and if you want the user to take any action.

1. User action feedback

These types of feedback are triggered by something the user does. The Errors in forms makes the user aware that something is wrong with what they have written or chosen, or they have forgotten something. The toast notifications can be used for communicating the outcome of for example new settings, statuses, connections or transactions.


2. Status

These components communicates the status in the system, and can be triggered by the system itself or by a user action that changes the status of the system. They can communicate anything from friendly messages about new opening hours or the download status of a file, to important information, such as you have a contract to sign or there is a technical error.


3. Loader components

These components gives the feedback to the user that “we are working on it” but we don’t know how long it will take to load the content. If we are sure that something will always take a certain amount of time, it can be combined with informative messages in a modal.
