The below example demonstrates the design pattern for alert.
Trigger Alert button causes a message to be inserted into the example alert element.
Similar examples include:
- Alert Dialog Example: A confirmation prompt that demonstrates an alert dialog.
This is just a test. A typical alert is triggered by an event, such as an error, warning condition, or the arrival of information that is important in the context of the user's task.
Because an alert is for critical information, assistive technologies may provide special behaviors designed to help call attention to changes in the text of an alert. For example, screen readers may interrupt all other speech and preface announcement of the new alert text with a special sound or phrase.
No keyboard interaction needed.
