The HelpText component is a styled copy block with guidance, placed in the context of form components.

Best practices

  • Only use this component in the context of a form, and as corresponding guidance to an input field

Copy considerations

  • Use direct, succinct copy that helps the user to successfully complete the form
  • Do not preface the instructions with introductory text, such as "please"
  • To add additional context, link out to documentation
  • Do not use punctuation
  • Use sentence style caps (in which only the first word of a sentence or term is capitalized)

Example

Enter your first and last name
