Writing for user interfaces - Service Manual - GOV.UK

make your service inclusive for people who struggle with reading or have limited English

A question designers often wonder when designing dialog boxes is where to place their ‘Ok’ and ‘Cancel’ buttons. The ‘Ok’ button is the primary button that completes the action the user initiated. The ‘Cancel’ button is the secondary button that takes users back to their original screen without completing the action. Based on their functions, what is the best order to place them?
