Text

Text inputs enable the user to interact with conversational AI engines (bots, assistants) and input content and data. This component can be used for long and short-form entries.

Example

Here’s an example of a text component.

Why to use?

The core component of conversational UI is text, you need display to users both short and long form content. In almost all of the use cases in designing the chatborts we are using the text component. There are some cases when you can display only table or chart without the using text as a separate component.

Guidance


Make text short


Use text component only for short messages. If you need to provide the user with longer text information, please use the HTML component.

Random text

You can specify different variations of the output message, and they will be displayed in a random sequence. This can make your chatbot look more "intelligently." Instead of showing the user the same message repeatedly, you can create 5 other options for that message and display them.



Display random replies to the users.

Format your text

Use HTML formatting options for the text to make it bold, add the heading paragraph, add the list, etc. All of these efforts will increase the readability of your message. Again, if you need many formatting options, please use the Markdown component.



Format the text before sending it to the users.
