Spacing ‚Äč

spacing design tokens are applied in padding and margin properties. They are used to create a consistent spacing within and between components.

spacing-horizontal-button12px - 1px
Foo Bar

Defined in src/components.json

Refers to spacing.75

Refers to border-width.base

Padding should equal 12px of spacing minus the width of the border

spacing-horizontal-button-icon-only6px - 1px
Foo Bar

Defined in src/components.json

Refers to spacing.35

Refers to border-width.base

Padding should equal 6px of spacing minus the width of the border

spacing-horizontal-button-large16px - 1px
Foo Bar

Defined in src/components.json

Refers to spacing.100

Refers to border-width.base

Padding should equal 16px of spacing minus the width of the border

spacing-horizontal-input-text-two-end-iconscalc( 8px * 2 + 1rem )
Foo Bar

Defined in src/components.json

Refers to spacing.50

Refers to size.icon-small

Rely on `calc()` to make token output usable in all formats. When there are two end icons, (i.e. a clear icon and an end icon), we need to double the horizontal padding and account for the size of the extra icon. This token can be used to calculate the horizontal position of the clear icon and the padding-end of the text input.

spacing-start-typeahead-search-figure12px
Foo Bar

Defined in src/components.json

Refers to spacing.75

The amount of space between the TypeaheadSearch figure's parent component and the TypeaheadSearch figure (input icon container, search result thumbnail, and footer icon container). We want this space to be uniform so that the figures vertically line up nicely. We use the same horizontal padding as the MenuItem.

spacing-start-typeahead-search-iconcalc( 12px + ( 40px - 20px ) / 2 )
Foo Bar

Defined in src/components.json

Refers to spacing.start-typeahead-search-figure

Refers to min-size.search-figure

Refers to min-size.icon-medium

The padding required for the icon to center align with the menu item thumbnail. We calculate the difference in size and add it to the expected spacing.

spacing-typeahead-search-focus-additioncalc( ( 12px + 40px ) - ( 20px + 8px ) )
Foo Bar

Defined in src/components.json

Refers to spacing.start-typeahead-search-figure

Refers to min-size.search-figure

Refers to min-size.icon-medium

Refers to spacing.50

The amount the width of the input increases when it is focused to allow for the extra spacing around the search figures. The caret position should remain static. This calculates the padding-left of the input when expanded minus the padding-left of the input when not expanded. (Note that both padding values actually include `@spacing-50` as well, but it was left out of the calculation for simplicity's sake.)
