A ''command link'' is an area containing icon and text that is used to initiate an action.
 
 
 
It is primarily designed to streamline Wizard-like interfaces and to select from a set of mutually exclusive, related choices. Complementary to command buttons, command links are used for navigation to other places. Links behave similar to buttons but have always a clean, lightweight appearance without stimulative nature.
 
== Example ==
 
== Guidelines ==
 
=== Is this the right control ===
 
* Use command links for a set of mutually exclusive responses like navigation from hub to spoke pages.
 
* Do not present single command links.
 
* Consider to use a [[KDE_Visual_Design_Group/HIG/Buttons|push button]] for single commands or if the action does not contain navigation.
 
=== Behavior ===
 
* Provide feedback when result is not aware to user or not available instantaneous. Display a busy pointer or present a progress bar to users.
 
* Do not mix command links and command buttons at one place.
 
===  Appearance ===
 
* Command links are flat.
 
* Use standard theme color for links.
 
* Always apply an icon to command links.
 
* Icons should have a size of 48x48 pixels.
 
* Choose a concise, self-explanatory label that clearly communicates and differentiates what the command link does.
 
* Do not use ellipsis.
 
== Implementation ==
