# What is the specific name of this UI component? [duplicate]

Is there a specific name for this kind of ui component? Sometimes it only renders a symbol (without text) so using name like TextComponent is imo not very fitting.

• Generally attributed to window UI structures, modal may be similar. Not sure if there is an exact name for just smaller UI elements though. – lozzajp Nov 18 '16 at 13:35
• @lozzajp, modal is not relevant because the element does not represents a UI window. – Kevin Law Nov 18 '16 at 15:07
• @KevinLaw windowless modal window with text? I think they are just called floating text, I had a google around for Final Fantasy terms and that seems to be the norm (or floating damage numbers etc.). – lozzajp Nov 18 '16 at 15:12
