A footer is a section that displays a description, label, or buttons. There are four types of footer variations.
A. Persistent Footer with Buttons
Indicate the Primary Action
When one or more actions are presented, indicate the primary action by placing it in a contained button. The secondary action should be shown as a text button
- Primary action: Contained button
- Secondary action: Text button

Separate Opposing Actions
When using two buttons that give opposite options to users, the two buttons are placed on the left and right of the footer to emphasize the different opposite actions, for example “Agree” and “Disagree”.
