William, perhaps we could add the text "OK" or "ALERT" along with the color change?

#3 Updated by William Grzybowski almost 3 years ago

Add the text where? Do you mean below where its currently written "Alert"?

#4 Avatar?id=14398&size=24x24 Updated by Kris Moore almost 3 years ago

Well, right now it always says "Alert" whether the colored button is red or green. Could we change that text to instead change based upon the status of the button above? Status: OK or Status: Alert or something of the like? I'm not picky to the particular text. Ash, did you have something in mind?

#5 Updated by Ash Gokhale almost 3 years ago

A textual indication would suit the intent nicely. Perhaps there is wording in the guide that describes the colors concisely.

#6 Updated by Ash Gokhale almost 3 years ago

The guide uses ok, warning and critical.

William, thoughts? Would renaming "Alert" text to "OK/warning/critical" to match the color of the alert graphic up top work? I have empathy for this one, almost all the men in my family are color blind and can't see the difference between the red/green icon without some text prompting ;)

Works for me.
