Usage #

This section includes guidelines for designers and developers about the usage of this component in different contexts.

Do #

  • Use to represent thematic breaks between elements.
  • Use when you need to divide sections of content from each other.
  • Use to separate content into clear groups.
  • Use dividers sparingly, to create groupings or to separate items.

Don’t #

  • Avoid using for presentational purposes only.
  • Don’t use strong colors in dividers.
  • Don’t use dividers for replacing card components.

Additional considerations #

  • Divider uses a role called separator which indicates that the element is a divider that separates and distinguishes sections of content or groups of menu items. The implicit ARIA role of the native thematic break (<hr> element) is a separator.
  • Dividers have an implicit aria-orientation value of horizontal which can be changed using the direction property.
  • For more details, please see ARIA: separator role on MDN.
