I have a long text "view/hide basic specifications" and I don't want to provide a button as that doesn't look good at the required location how can I give user that function without a button so that it looks good and fulfills the purpose.

  • Maybe a switch would work ? Change text to View base specs? – Cristian Negraia Oct 14 '19 at 13:25
  • You can add a little eye icon with the text next to it, underlined and in blue. – J_D Oct 14 '19 at 15:05
  • There's no correct answer to this. It's more of a discussion topic or something you'd get the team around a whiteboard to brainstorm the best idea. The measurable criteria for an answer here is just 'it looks good / bad' which doesn't really fit with how this site works as it's entirely subjective. And it also is written with the result that it encourages icon suggestions (which is off-topic for this site). – JonW Oct 14 '19 at 15:52

If long text buttons is not an option for you then your can opt for other options. Instead of button you can go with plain hyper link or an alternative to text can be an Icon image, but at times icons does not looks self explanatory, to tackle that problem you can add a tool-tip to the icon.
