Button is used for actions, like in forms, while Link is used for destinations, or moving from one page to another.

In special cases where you'd like to use a <a> styled like a Button, use <Button as='a'> and provide an href.

To create a button group, wrap Button elements in the ButtonGroup element. ButtonGroup gets the same props as Box.

Examples

Kitchen sink
