Cosmos offers built-in interactions that reflect proven UI best practices, accessibility, and user feedback. These interaction patterns are supported out-of-the-box to support common user expectations and build an intuitive user interface.

Below are examples of built-in interactions within Cosmos:

  • Mouse — Single clicks are used to select / activate items. Hovering can reveal more information. Pressing can activate, pan, or drag some items. Releasing can stop panning or drop items being dragged.
  • Voice — Pega's omni-channel application allows users to participate in business processes via any channel. We support voice commands through third parties such as Amazon Alexa, but do not rely on voice commands for any specific interaction today.
  • Touch and gestures — In the Pega design system, a touch is handled like a mouse click. As for gestures, we support swiping on toggles and tab pages.
