  • Automatic and manual control over when the image renders.
  • Fallback part accepts any children.
  • Optionally delay fallback rendering to avoid content flashing.

Install the component from your command line.

npm install @radix-ui/react-avatar

Import all parts and piece them together.

import * as Avatar from '@radix-ui/react-avatar';
export default () => (
<Avatar.Image />
<Avatar.Fallback />

Contains all the parts of an avatar.


The image to render. By default it will only render when it has loaded. You can use the onLoadingStatusChange handler if you need more control.

onLoadingStatusChangefunctionNo default value

An element that renders when the image hasn't loaded. This means whilst it's loading, or if there was an error. If you notice a flash during loading, you can provide a delayMs prop to delay its rendering so it only renders for those with slower connections. For more control, use the onLoadingStatusChange handler on Avatar.Image.

delayMsnumberNo default value

You can compose the Avatar with a Tooltip to display extra information.

import * as Avatar from '@radix-ui/react-avatar';
import * as Tooltip from '@radix-ui/react-tooltip';
export default () => (
<Tooltip.Content side="top">
Tooltip content
<Tooltip.Arrow />
