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.

In-context information

When a field needs to be explained in detail


When a field, e.g. in a table, needs to be explained more in detail we add in-context information.

The information can be split up in two different categories depending on whether the user must see the information or not.

  1. Must see. Information the user must see, often due to the requirements should be shown without a user interaction.
  2. Can see. Additional information that is not required to be seen should be hidden behind a user interaction.

For both cases the text should be short, concise and easy to understand. Whenever possible the information should be presented close to its context.
