Floating Action Button

A Floating Action Button (FAB) represents the primary action in a Page. But, it’s not limited to only a single action. It can contain any number of sub-actions too. And more importantly, it can also be used inline in your Pages or Layouts.

Note that you don’t need a QLayout to use FABs.

Usage

There are two types of FABs: expandable (has sub-actions) and non-expandable.

TIP

For an exhausting list of options, please read the API cards (at the top of this page).

Non-Expandable

If you want a non-expandable FAB, all you need is a round button – wrapped in QPageSticky if used on a QLayout.




Expandable




Internal labels







When the labels are internal and your QFab opens up vertically (up or down) then you also have the ability to choose how to vertically align the sub-actions:




External labels

By default, when the label is external on the main QFab (not the sub-actions), it gets shown only when QFab is opened. However, you can override that by setting a Boolean value for hide-label prop.










Hide icons

If we hide the icon (through specific prop), we should at least use an internal label:




Padding

The default padding for QFab is “md” and for QFabAction is “sm”. However, you can use padding prop to customize it (accepts CSS units too):




Square style
