I am working on card which has a clickable link/ clickable options but the card itself is not clickable. I want to add a shadow to the card when someone is hovering on/ clicking on the link. I have read in many posts that only when something is clickable, we should put a hover action on. Does it seem like a good interaction pattern? No Hover and Hoverable Card

1 Answer 1


Certainly seems misleading to me. We highlight the interactive element when hovered by a pointer to provide visual feedback as to what the user is trying to interact with. Highlighting the entire card seems to imply the entire card will be activated as a single element.
