May I ask if somebody knows what is the name of the pop-up menu when the user clicks on the profile? There are many interface techniques and I would like to improve the interface for the existing project I am working on.
there is really no agreed general semantic term for this interface component.
Shopify regards it as a Popover menu in their Polaris Design system.
IBM regards to it as an Overflow menu in their Carbon Design system
The Ant Design system refers to it as a Popover menu.
Bootstrap refers to it as a Dropdown menu.
I personally think it's an Enhanced Popover.
At its essence, It's a card that contains user profile info. Its called a User Card or User Profile Card presented in a popover and triggered by mouse hover/touch/click.
Many designers and Design Systems consider it a variation of the card component.
There is a lack of naming standards. Since there is no consensus, there are many fancy names out there. Some of them are:
- UXSE calls it a Flair and User Card Popup on Mouse Hover
- Hero Image Card by Hubspot Canvas
- Raised Card by Semantic UI
- Cards by BBC Gel
