Usage #

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

Do #

  • Use to let a user choose one option from an options menu.
  • Use when you have more than 6 options to choose from.
  • Use when you don’t know how many options there will be.
  • Use hint text and placeholder to provide additional, non-critical instructions.

Don’t #

  • Don't use a select if you have less than 6 options to choose from. Consider using radio components instead, if you have enough space to allow it.

Content guidelines #

Select labels act as a title for the select field. Labels should typically be short and in noun form:

Company name
What is your company name?

When writing select labels, always write them in sentence case, not title case. The first word should be capitalized and the rest lowercase (unless a proper noun):

Company name
Company Name

Do not use colons in select labels:
