Dialogs inform users about a specific task and may contain critical information, require decisions, or involve multiple tasks.

Dialogs contain text and UI controls. They retain focus until dismissed or a required action has been taken.

Use dialogs sparingly because they are interruptive.

Dialogs should never be obscured, either by other elements or the screen edge.

Some dialog types include:

  • Alerts are urgent interruptions that inform about a situation and require acknowledgement.
  • Simple menus display options for list items, whereas simple dialogs can provide details or actions about a list item.
  • Confirmation dialogs require users to explicitly confirm a choice.
