Icon buttons

There are a lot of benefits of using icon buttons. Icons accompanied by labels make information easier to find and scan. Only icon buttons can be compact enough to allow toolbars, tables amongst other elements, using many icon buttons in a relatively small space.

Buttons with icon

Using icons in buttons can help to enhance the user experience. Buttons with icons should have a corresponding label.

Place the icons before label in order for users to see them first.

Add EOS-icons icon inside any style of button to create a button with an icon.


Only icon buttons

Use the .btn-icon class, in addition to the default button classes, when you need nothing but an icon inside a button.
Icon buttons require the use of tooltips to provide users with a short explanation.
