Introduction

The Groundhog button is a visual block representing an action or link on the page. The button usually holds either text or an icon representing an action. The button can be used to make a link on a webpage more noticeable, or draw attention to an action on the page.

Button versions

The Groundhog button appears in a two versions, each available on light and dark backgrounds:

Including a button

  1. To include a Groundhog button add either an <a> (anchor/link) or an <button> element. Include the necessary text or icon content.
    <a href="#">This is a button</a>
    
  2. Add the necessary Groundhog classes to the elements class attribute.
    <a href="#" class="btn btn--primary">This is a button</a>
    
  3. The button is ready to use

Accessibility

When using a button element, make sure that you at least include the role="button" and type="button" attributes to the element.

Using Icons with Buttons

To use buttons and icons together, you need the icon module as well as the icon component. Groundhog uses svg reference functionality to reduce load duplication of icon content. You can find the code to use an icon within a button here.
