Choosing the Right Toggle Style

February 16, 2023 by No Comments


Togle is a button that controls the state of something — for example, an on or off switch. In most cases, toggles help users manage the state of content or a view by providing direct labels and standard visual design.

When used as a user-interface component, toggles can have a significant impact on the experience of using your app or site. They can also help you meet specific design and usability goals, as long as you use them properly.

Choosing the Right Toggle Style

Toggles allow users to choose between two opposing states, like on and off. They provide a visual signal for these changes, and can be used on all platforms.

Color is an important part of toggle design; designers should select colors that make it easy for users to know which state they’re in. Those colors should contrast with the content or other elements of the toggle.

In addition to color, it’s also helpful to have an interface icon that clearly communicates the toggle’s purpose. This makes it easier for users to understand what they’re doing with the toggle and avoid confusion.

Toggle Groups

The toggle-group property lets you add multiple toggles to a button, each with their own appearance. This is useful when you need to indicate multiple toggles that are mutually exclusive, similar to the way a radio button works on an HTML page.

Experiment Toggles

These are commonly used for A/B testing or to perform multivariate analysis. Each user of the system is placed into a cohort and at runtime the Toggle Router sends them down one codepath or the other, depending on their underlying behavior.
