A button group is a wrapper for related buttons; useful if you want to display multiple, related actions together.


Add the correct role attribute to the button group: e.g. role="group" or role="toolbar", to communicate that the buttons are grouped to users of assistive technologies.

Usage guidelines

  • Use consistent rules for the order of buttons across different button groups. One possible rule is to keep primary actions (e.g. submitting a form) on the right and secondary actions (e.g. cancel, go back) on the left.
