Panel

This component is the most basic and extendable asset to fit content into. You can customize panels to match almost any use cases. Panels are build to fit into our grid system, allowing them to have variable width.

Overview

Panels are based on the gridding and can contain text, images and other components. As panels have no content default defined, the panel component usage guidance is purposefully high-level. It focuses specifically on the panel itself, not the structure of the information or interactive elements that the panel contains.

A simple default panel to enclose your content. Panels have always 4 rounded corners. You can customize background (color or images) as well as content inside. Panels offer 2 sizes of gutters in case you need more or less space around the content.

  1. Default panel
  2. Big panel
    With bigger gutters

Functionalities

Panel can be extended with several functionalities:

  • Non-clickable
    A simple default panel to enclose your content.
  • Clickable
    This option allows your panels to be fully clickable, working as navigational element to drive user to another page.
  • Expandable
    Expandable panel is used to hide/show larger amount of content.
  • Selectable
    Selectable panel are called selectable boxes and allow the user to select unique or multiple options. More info about selectable boxes

These variations of panels are flexible enough to support a variety of different use cases.


Non-clickable

A panel can contain many different components, but the most common are headings, texts, prices, lists,... A panel can also include one or more links. If the panel contains several links, then you can interact with each link separately and the panel stay non-clickable, but if the panel contains only one link then the whole panel is clickable to that destination, see the clickable panel.


Clickable

Clickable panel allows your panels to be fully clickable, working as navigational element to drive user to another page. Clickable panel cannot contain multiple navigation elements inside. Behaviour is limited to one destination.

The single link can be visible by using a clickable element as a button or a default link, but you have also the possibility to add a link to your panel without a clickable element.

States

The hover effect is applied following this rule:

  1. Containing a clickable element
    The full panel is clickable, and the hover effect is applied on the clickable element (button, link,...) only.
  2. Without a clickable element
    The full panel is clickable, and an hover effect is applied on the panel itself: the panel move to the top of 10px

Expandable

Expandable panels are useful when hiding/showing larger amount of content is needed. When expanded, another panel appears underneath the panel with an arrow pointing to it. This new panel can also be customized.

Best practises
  • Don't use to present critical information or request required input needed to complete a workflow.
  • Content inside expandable panel should be informative content with image, text, headings, list items.
  • Don't put expand/collapse behavior inside of a panel expand item. That's not a best UX practice.

States

  1. Default state
  2. Hover
  3. Opened
    State visible when clicked. The panel expand opens, allowing the content inside to be displayed. Only one panel can be expand at a time. If a new expand is opened, the previous one is closed.

Anatomy

  1. Panel container
    Container background can be customized whether by choosing a color, a gradient or an image.
  2. Panel title
    Title give some context about the panel itself, depending on the use of the panel, the title is an optional content. It can be combined with an image or an icon. Though its size and place is always the same.
  3. Panel content
  4. Expand action panel
    Toggle a panel underneath it when clicked on. A single accordion is used within the expand action panel to show the expandable function to the user.
  5. Expand panel container
    This container appears when the expand action is triggered, similar to the panel, this one has a pointing arrow towerds the panel it expands.

  6. Expanded panel content
  7. Close button
    Closes the expanded panel when clicked on. Refer to close action link for more info.


Composition

Composition of panels is set to the grid. We can have maximum 4 columns per row in desktop and we recommend one panel per row on mobile.

The height of the boxes is based on the highest box of the row.

Do
The height of the boxes is based on the highest box of the row.

Don't
The height of the boxes is based on each box content.

Resizing panels with flexbox (boxes only, not contents inside)

To align panels height on a same row, the first easiest way is to use flexbox as long as elements inside of the panels should not be aligned (otherwise a resizer withtout flexbox will be needed).
A <div class="rs-panel-flex-cell"> should be added inside of the <div class="rs-panel-flex"> . Flexbox gridding is of course required to work properly.

Big flex panel

To have a big flex panel, rs-panel-flex-cell-big should be used instead of rs-panel-flex-cell .

Background on flex panel

The background should be added on same div as rs-panel-flex-cell

Panel clickable

To have a panel full clickable, jsrs-clickable and rs-panel-clickable should be added to the <div> containing the panel . Always put at least one <a> in the panel .

Accessibility
  • Make sure <a></a> contains an explicit text and an href to make people understand what's the content of the link and where they go if they click on it.

Panel clickable with arrow

In order to highlight the "link" side of this element, it is possible to add an arrow whose style is similar to the "entrypoint". For that adapt your gridding and use a span with the class rs-panel-clickable-arrow .

Accessibility

Make sure <span> has a aria-hidden attribute set to true.

Panel clickable with target blank

If the link opens in a new tab, then this should be indicated to the user from a visual and screen reader point of view. The arrow therefore becomes rs-panel-clickable-arrow-blank or rs-panel-clickable-arrow-blank-neg .

A <span> with show-for-sr needs to be added inside your <a> with the mention New window.

Accessibility
  • data-expand-panel on the button must call up the id of the content that will be displayed
  • aria-expanded attribute must be applied to the button that controls the foldout panel.
  • aria-controls attribute creates a cause and effect relationship. It identifies the element(s) that are controlled by the current element
  • aria-labelledby artribute is used to indicate the IDs of the elements that label the object. It is used to establish a relationship between the components. You must therefore link the content with the button by adding its id.
