    Touch Target

    Touch targets are the parts of the screen that respond to user input. They extend beyond the visual bounds of an element. For example, a button may appear to be 48 x 36 px, but the padding surrounding it comprises the full 48 x 48 px touch target.

    Material Design spec states that touch targets should be at least 48 x 48 px. The MDC Web library provides mixins and guidance on adding an increased touch target for the following components:

    • Button
    • Chips
    • Checkbox
    • Radio
    • Mini FAB

    Design & API Documentation


    npm install @material/touch-target

    Basic Usage

    HTML Structure

    For a given button component:

    <button class="mdc-button">
      <div class="mdc-button__ripple"></div>
      <span class="mdc-button__label">My Inaccessible Button</span>

    You would add an increased touch target as follows:

    <div class="mdc-touch-target-wrapper">
      <button class="mdc-button mdc-button--touch">
        <div class="mdc-button__ripple"></div>
        <div class="mdc-button__touch"></div>
        <span class="mdc-button__label">My Accessible Button</span>

    Note that the outer mdc-touch-target-wrapper element is only necessary if you want to avoid potentially overlapping touch targets on adjacent elements (due to collapsing margins).


    @use "@material/touch-target/mdc-touch-target";
