Integration

1) Add as a dependency to your ``build.gradle``:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.melnykov:floatingactionbutton:1.3.0'
}

2) Add the ``com.melnykov.fab.FloatingActionButton`` to your layout XML file. The button should be placed in the bottom right corner of the screen. The width and height of the floating action button are hardcoded to 56dp for the normal and 40dp for the mini button as specified in the guidelines.

<FrameLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
             xmlns:fab="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
             android:layout_width="match_parent"
             android:layout_height="match_parent">


&lt;ListView
        android:id="@android:id/list"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent" /&gt;

&lt;com.melnykov.fab.FloatingActionButton
        android:id="@+id/fab"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_gravity="bottom|right"
        android:layout_margin="16dp"
        android:src="@drawable/ic_action_content_new"
        fab:fab_colorNormal="@color/primary"
        fab:fab_colorPressed="@color/primary_pressed"
        fab:fab_colorRipple="@color/ripple" /&gt;
</FrameLayout>

3) Attach the FAB to ``AbsListView``, ``RecyclerView`` or ``ScrollView`` :

ListView listView = (ListView) findViewById(android.R.id.list);
FloatingActionButton fab = (FloatingActionButton) findViewById(R.id.fab);
fab.attachToListView(listView);

Check the sample project to see how to use custom listeners if you need to track scroll events.

4) Add the namespace ``xmlns:fab="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"`` to your layout file.

  • Set the button type (normal or mini) via the ``fab_type`` xml attribute (default is normal):

    fab:fab_type="mini"
    

    or

    fab.setType(FloatingActionButton.TYPE_MINI);
    

  • Set the normal and pressed colors via the xml attributes:

    fab:fab_colorNormal="@color/primary"
    fab:fab_colorPressed="@color/primary_pressed"
    

    or

    fab.setColorNormal(getResources().getColor(R.color.primary));
    fab.setColorPressed(getResources().getColor(R.color.primary_pressed));
    

  • Enable/disable the button shadow with the ``fab_shadow`` xml attribite (it's enabled by default):

    fab:fab_shadow="false"
    

    or

    fab.setShadow(false);
    

  • Show/hide the button expliciltly:

    fab.show();
    fab.hide();
    
    fab.show(false); // Show without an animation
    fab.hide(false); // Hide without an animation
    
  • Specify the ripple color for API 21+:

    fab:fab_colorRipple="@color/ripple"
    

    or

    fab.setColorRipple(getResources().getColor(R.color.ripple));
    

5) Set an icon for the ``FloatingActionButton`` using ``android:src`` xml attribute. Use drawables of size 24dp as specified by guidelines. Icons of desired size can be generated with Android Asset Studio.
