Segmented control

Segmented control is an interface element that allows users to switch between different views or subsets of an application or a webpage. It presents multiple options in a horizontal set, typically highlighting the current selection distinctly.

Segmented controls are best used for exclusive selections that are closely related and compete for the same space in interface. They provide a compact, intuitive way to organize and switch between content or controls, without navigating away from the current context. By enabling easy and quick transitions between different views, the Segmented control component greatly enhances user experience and interaction efficiency.
