Alert API

The API documentation of the Alert React component. Learn more about the props and the CSS customization points.

Import

import Alert from '@material-ui/lab/Alert';
// or
import { Alert } from '@material-ui/lab';

You can learn more about the difference by reading this guide.

Props

Name Type Default Description
action node The action to display. It renders after the message, at the end of the alert.
children node The content of the component.
classes object Override or extend the styles applied to the component. See CSS API below for more details.
closeText string 'Close' Override the default label for the close popup icon button.
For localization purposes, you can use the provided translations.
color 'error'
| 'info'
| 'success'
| 'warning'
The main color for the alert. Unless provided, the value is taken from the severity prop.
icon node Override the icon displayed before the children. Unless provided, the icon is mapped to the value of the severity prop.
iconMapping { error?: node, info?: node, success?: node, warning?: node } The component maps the severity prop to a range of different icons, for instance success to <SuccessOutlined>. If you wish to change this mapping, you can provide your own. Alternatively, you can use the icon prop to override the icon displayed.
onClose func Callback fired when the component requests to be closed. When provided and no action prop is set, a close icon button is displayed that triggers the callback when clicked.

Signature:
function(event: object) => void
event: The event source of the callback.
role string 'alert' The ARIA role attribute of the element.
severity 'error'
| 'info'
| 'success'
| 'warning'
'success' The severity of the alert. This defines the color and icon used.
variant 'filled'
| 'outlined'
| 'standard'
'standard' The variant to use.

The ref is forwarded to the root element.

Any other props supplied will be provided to the root element (Paper).
