Best Practice For Buttons

Caroline Jarrett has written a great piece over on the UX Matters site: http://www.uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2012/05/7-basic-best-practices-for-buttons.php

For those of you with short attention spans here is Caroline’s own summary:

  1. Make buttons look like buttons.
  2. Put buttons where users can find them.
  3. Make the most important button look like it’s the most important one.
  4. Put buttons in a sensible order.
  5. Label buttons with what they do.
  6. If users don’t want to do something, don’t have a button for it.
  7. Make it harder to find destructive buttons.
