Glossary » alert box

alert box

a dialog box, generally modal, that appears to alert the user to important information.

3 categories of alert boxes are common:

  • “errors” are typically actions which can’t be continued
  • “warnings” suggest that a problem might occur
  • “notes” provide information to a user, but don’t suggest that anything critical is occurring
