The Problem

The DevExtreme library does not include the Floating Action Button (FAB) — a button that performs the primary action of a screen. This button should be displayed in front of all screen content. In a special case, the FAB can open a stack of two to five related actions (speed dial).

The Proposed Solution

Drawing inspiration from Material Design guidelines by Google, we adopted the Speed dial concept and implemented the FAB as a configuration container that automatically collects and contains all SpeedDialAction components defined on a page.

The SpeedDialAction component has the following API:

let speedDialActionOptions = {
    icon: string
    onClick: function

Add a Floating Action Button that performs a custom action

    icon: "add",
    onClick: function(e) {
        // ...

Add a Floating Action Button that opens a stack of related actions

    icon: "edit",
    onClick: function(e) {
        // ...

    icon: "repeat",
    onClick: function(e) {
        // ...

These SpeedDialActions will be collected in a speed dial menu. It can include up to five actions. The FAB in this case opens the menu. You can change the maximum number of actions, as well as the FAB's position and icons in the opened and closed states, via the floatingActionButtonConfig object:

    floatingActionButtonConfig: {
        position: {
            at: "right bottom",
            my: "right bottom",
            offset: "-16 -16"
        icon: "add",
        closeIcon: "close",
        maxSpeedDialActionCount: 5
    // ...

Try It
