Migration Guide


Popover Dependency

Action bar requires Popover, which is nested within Action bar. Action bar background, border, and corner radius are applied to the nested Popover component and can be overriden by Action bar.

Action bar close button

Checkbox has been replaced by Close button.

Item counter

Item counter has replaced the checkbox field label. Item counter is a Field Label component.

New Action button markup

Action button requires .spectrum-ActionButton-icon class on icons nested inside of Action button.

Emphasized Action bar requires .spectrum-ActionButton-staticWhite class on Action button.

New ActionGroup markup

Action bar now uses the new ActionGroup markup. Replace .spectrum-ButtonGroup with .spectrum-ActionGroup and apply .spectrum-ActionGroup-item to each action button. See the Action Group for more information.

Change workflow icon size to medium

If you use icon action button in your markup, please replace .spectrum-Icon--sizeS with .spectrum-Icon--sizeM.
