Button with icon#

You can add left and right icons to the Button component using the leftIcon and rightIcon props respectively.

Note: The leftIcon and rightIcon prop values should be react elements NOT strings.

<Stack direction='row' spacing={4}>
<Button leftIcon={<EmailIcon />} colorScheme='teal' variant='solid'>
Email
</Button>
<Button rightIcon={<ArrowForwardIcon />} colorScheme='teal' variant='outline'>
Call us
</Button>
</Stack>

You can also use icons from popular libraries like react-icons and pass it into the button.

// import { MdBuild , MdCall } from "react-icons/md"
<Stack direction='row' spacing={4}>
<Button leftIcon={<MdBuild />} colorScheme='pink' variant='solid'>
Settings
</Button>
<Button rightIcon={<MdCall />} colorScheme='blue' variant='outline'>
Call us
</Button>
</Stack>

Button loading state#

Pass the isLoading prop to show its loading state. By default, the button will show a spinner and leave the button's width unchanged.

You can also pass the loadingText prop to show a spinner and the loading text.

<Stack direction='row' spacing={4}>
<Button isLoading colorScheme='teal' variant='solid'>
Email
</Button>
<Button
isLoading
loadingText='Submitting'
colorScheme='teal'
variant='outline'
>
Submit
</Button>
</Stack>

You can change the spinner element to use custom loaders as per your design requirements. Pass the spinner prop and set it to a custom react element.

<Button
isLoading
colorScheme='blue'
spinner={<BeatLoader size={8} color='white' />}
>
Click me
</Button>

When a loadingText is present, you can change the placement of the spinner element to either start or end. It is start by default.

<Stack direction='row' spacing={4} align='center'>
<Button
isLoading
loadingText='Loading'
colorScheme='teal'
variant='outline'
spinnerPlacement='start'
>
Submit
</Button>
<Button
isLoading
loadingText='Loading'
colorScheme='teal'
variant='outline'
spinnerPlacement='end'
>
Continue
</Button>
</Stack>

Social Buttons#

We've included the colors for common social media platforms, and you can simply use their buttons via the colorScheme prop.

<HStack>
<Button colorScheme='facebook' leftIcon={<FaFacebook />}>
Facebook
</Button>
<Button colorScheme='twitter' leftIcon={<FaTwitter />}>
Twitter
</Button>
</HStack>

The Facebook and Twitter icons in the above example are available from react-icons as FaFacebook and FaTwitter, found in the react-icons/fa import.

Grouping Buttons#

You can use the Stack or ButtonGroup component to group buttons. When you use the ButtonGroup component, it allows you to:

  • Set the size and variant of all buttons within it.
  • Add spacing between the buttons.
  • Flush the buttons together by removing the border radius of their children as needed.
<ButtonGroup variant='outline' spacing='6'>
<Button colorScheme='blue'>Save</Button>
<Button>Cancel</Button>
</ButtonGroup>

To flush the buttons, pass the isAttached prop.

<ButtonGroup size='sm' isAttached variant='outline'>
<Button>Save</Button>
<IconButton aria-label='Add to friends' icon={<AddIcon />} />
</ButtonGroup>

Accessibility#

  • Button has role of button.
  • When Button has focus, Space or Enter activates it.

Composition#

All props you pass (variant, colorScheme, etc.) are converted to style props. This means you can override any style of the Button via props.

// The size prop affects the height of the button
// It can still be overridden by passing a custom height
<Button
size='md'
height='48px'
width='200px'
border='2px'
borderColor='green.500'
>
Button
</Button>

Custom Button#

In the event that you need to make your own custom button, you can leverage the Box component. It provides the hover, focus, active and disabled style props to style the button.

// Button from facebook.com
<Box
as='button'
height='24px'
lineHeight='1.2'
transition='all 0.2s cubic-bezier(.08,.52,.52,1)'
border='1px'
px='8px'
borderRadius='2px'
fontSize='14px'
fontWeight='semibold'
bg='#f5f6f7'
borderColor='#ccd0d5'
color='#4b4f56'
_hover={{ bg: '#ebedf0' }}
_active={{
bg: '#dddfe2',
transform: 'scale(0.98)',
borderColor: '#bec3c9',
}}
_focus={{
boxShadow:
'0 0 1px 2px rgba(88, 144, 255, .75), 0 1px 1px rgba(0, 0, 0, .15)',
}}
