Icon fonts

Use icons to add images to controls. Pega Platform includes a set of icon fonts in the py-icons CSS text file, which is in the UI Kit ruleset. Many of these fonts are used in the standard user portals and forms.

Icon fonts offer the following advantages over binary image files:

  • Reduction in file size

  • Availability of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) images

  • Ability to apply custom colors, sizes, and styles
