Micro Interactions Using Interactive Components In Figma

Hi, everyone in this video, we're going to do the most basic of micro interactions. Basically, it's so basic. I is this even a micro interaction? A hover. OK. They're called interactive components inside a fig A. This one is a hover as you can see. And this one here is just click on and off. Up until now. We've had to choose a variant to start with and we haven't had this kind of like lovely interaction. But now we do uh let me show you how to make it. Hi everyone. Uh First thing is, is that this feature that I'm showing you here is new for FIG A actually hasn't come out yet. It's still in beta. OK. Uh Depending on how long in the future you're watching this. Um It'll either just work flawlessly. OK? Or you might have to turn it on if you, if you know, if some of the features aren't around, just go to fig A and, or do Google search for, you're looking for something called Interactive components beta and asked to be part of the program. It takes about a week and then they seem to be lea...

ding any old person in. They let me in. OK? But in the future this might just work. So we're gonna kind of start with that. So I'm gonna undo and we'll get started for real. OK? So what I wanna do is just do a really bare bones version just so I can show you how it works and then we'll do some more detailed things as we go. So I've just got a blank document cos other ones getting messy. Uh And I call it micro interactions. And I'm just gonna start with a rectangle. We're gonna do that button thing you saw at the beginning and I'm really just gonna do bare bones. So we'll start with a button that is gray. OK? And we will turn it into a component. So we're gonna rely on some of the stuff we already know. OK. So a button needs to be a component. How do you do a variable? That's what we need to start with. Cos interactive components is just a way of switching variables. So to make a variable, we have to start with a component. That component has to be turned into a variable. OK? And there needs to be two variants or a minimum of two. OK? This one here, I'm just gonna double click and change the color of OK? So I've got two, OK? Two colors. And this is kind of where we got up to before that is a variant and what we were able to do up until recently is only we could go, here's my component, I can pick whether it is this variant or this variant. We had to kind of just do it. There was no interactivity between the two which is weird. Huh like this new feature feels like it, I don't know, very important part of our prototypes. But anyway, so uh what we need to do now is to make that actually interactive. OK? For this interactive component, what we do is we go inside of here, OK. This is my component set and the dots are on the outside. We go to prototype, go inside my component set. OK? And these are the two versions, you can see these dots appearing well up until now. We can only go to other frames. OK? But now we can go to other components and use things like that are on tap while hovering. If you can't see while hovering, it means you are not part of the beta. OK? And you might have to go and ask for access if you want to do this, otherwise wait around, it'll be out soon and they might change the naming of it here. So just look in here. Some of them's gonna say something to do with hovering. OK? It might not say while hovering, but they reserve the right to change it in beta. OK? So while hovering, I am going to change to variant two and that's it. OK, let's give it a go. So let's preview this one. I say it's gonna work, it's not gonna work. OK? Or it does. OK? If yours doesn't work. Look at that, I'm hovering, I'm not doing anything. That's the sweet new Sigma um thing called interactive components. Super helpful. Long time coming. OK? If you can't see yours, it's because you only have this there. I have this version of it while I was explaining to you drag one out. So you might only have this first kind of component set. You might have to drag out from your assets panel, the actual button and you should really be on its own page. OK? So let's go to this one. Now, there we go while hovering. Let's do another simple one. OK? It's going to be whilst clicking or at least on tap. So I'm gonna go and steal something from my last document. OK? I went and stole this check box from one of the, I think I originally stole it from Microsoft's kind of community one. Anyway, it is just let's go look at the layers. It is just a rectangle and a tick box. OK? Currently, they're inside of a frame, but that doesn't really matter. I'm gonna select both of them, make sure it's a component. OK? Make sure there's two variants of it. The second variant, I'm going to double click to delete the tick and that's kind of what we did before, right. We made this little thing and we get to decide whether it's ticked on or ticked off. So to add the interactivity just like we did before switch to prototype option nine. OK? Or alt nine and say you, I've double clicked to go inside the component set to say you go there. When do you go there on tap? It's done it already. OK? On tap. Change to variant two instantly. Yeah. Why not dissolve is not gonna be that exciting? OK. But let's give it a preview. So I'm gonna drag out an instance. OK. So I've already got one there and let's preview it. My preview should be already open and watch. Oh Look how cool that is. Why doesn't that go back then? OK. So it went one way if I reset it for ah OK, it goes off but not back on. How do we do that? Basically if you want it to toggle, OK, go back and forth. You basically just go to this. So we've got one dragging from here to here. Let's just get one going back to this way and it will remember the last thing you've done. So it's gonna remember on tap change two and it's going to go to this new one. So hopefully it just works. Let's go toggle, toggle, toggle, toggle, toggle. Hey, super basic micro interactions really. This is just interactive components. This is as basic as it gets, we'll do some more uh more micro interaction bits in the next video. But that is interactive components inside of FIG A.
