So I have a widget that displays some info. In some cases - you should be able to click on it and it redirects you to the X Module In other cases - the X Module is disabled and when the user clicks on the widget, I want to notify with a toast "X Module is disabled"

What color should I choose? Red or Yellow?

    Please make sure you back this up with some other visual so that it's not purely based on colour - circles or octagons are associated with "stop" actions - Relying on colour alone poses big accessibility issues for people with colour blindness as well as some other visual, cognitive, and situational requirements Nov 24, 2022 at 14:09
  • A related question that you should reference not just for colour choice but other aspects of the notification design as well: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/14386/…
