Avatar

Adds additional visual information about a user.

When to use

  • When you want to show a user's image along contextual information.
  • When you want to attribute an action to a user.

Accessibility

  • Top level name prop will be set on the <img> element as its alt attribute.
  • If src fails to load, applies aria-label with provided name and role with 'img' to root div element.

Overrides

Additionally, you can fully customize any part of the Avatar through the overrides prop. The Avatar consists of multiple subcomponents that are listed bellow and you can override each one of them. To help you identify the names of these subcomponents, you can highlight them through this selector:

user name #1
user

Note: You should always use longhand CSS properties. Mixing shorthands and longhands will lead into strange behaviors!
