<AlertDescription>Your Chakra experience may be degraded.</AlertDescription>
<CloseButton position="absolute" right="8px" top="8px" />

Status#

Change the status of the alerts by passing the status prop. This affects the color scheme and icon used. Alert supports error, success, warning, and info statuses.

</Alert>
<Alert status="success">

Composition#

Alert ships with smaller components to allow for flexibility in creating all kinds of layouts. Here's an example of a custom alert style and layout:

<Alert
status="success"
variant="subtle"
flexDirection="column"
alignItems="center"
justifyContent="center"
textAlign="center"
height="200px"
>
<AlertIcon boxSize="40px" mr={0} />
<AlertTitle mt={4} mb={1} fontSize="lg">
Application submitted!
</AlertTitle>
<AlertDescription maxWidth="sm">
Thanks for submitting your application. Our team will get back to you soon.
</AlertDescription>
</Alert>

Alert can also incorporate other Chakra components. Here's an example of an alert with wrapping description text:

<Alert status="success">
<AlertIcon />
<Box flex="1">
<AlertTitle>Success!</AlertTitle>
<AlertDescription display="block">
Your application has been received. We will review your application and
respond within the next 48 hours.
</AlertDescription>
</Box>
<CloseButton position="absolute" right="8px" top="8px" />
</Alert>
