Icons and Symbols
Astro includes a library of common Icons, Symbols, and Notification Symbols. Persistent use of these will help ensure users are presented with consistent and meaningful information across applications.
Each of these must be easily identifiable by users and also be immediately distinguishable from each other, eliminating confusion and mistakes.
Astro’s icons have been designed to utilize the Astro Status System.
Monitoring Icons must include a label, a title attribute in the HTML and a status indicator. When used in a light theme status indicators must also include a 1 pixel border around the status indicator set to rgba(0,0,0,0.5)
Astro Icon Classes
These icons represent objects, equipment, and concepts that are being administered or monitored. The purpose of these icons is to easily, concisely, and clearly visually communicate their status to users.
An Icon may also include a Label and Sub-Label.
An Icon Label provides the name of the item being represented. An Icon Label should not change.
An Icon Sub-Label provides additional information to the user and may be dynamic. Use Sub-Labels only as needed to avoid unnecessary distraction.
Percentage Monitoring Icons
Percentage Monitoring Icons depict a value between 0 and 100 as an arc and a numeric display. Ranges within the arc may be mapped to the standard Astro Status Colors. In this example the range containing 80% is mapped to Serious.
Action Icons initiate actions or state changes to objects or processes.
Utility Icons represent access to tools used to modify the settings for a component, object, or globally. Utility Icons are also accompanied by a descriptive name.
Events that require some user attention, but no immediate response, may be indicated by changes to a Notification Symbol.
This Notification Symbol shows that ninety-nine events related to a Satellite have occurred. You may hyperlink indicators to reveal a deeper view of relevant Notification information. You may also link to the general Log.
