Basic use for Compose


Add the SpeedDial() Composable to the floatingActionButton of your Scaffold:

var speedDialState by rememberSaveable { mutableStateOf(SpeedDialState.Collapsed) }
var overlayVisible: Boolean by rememberSaveable { mutableStateOf(speedDialState.isExpanded()) }
    floatingActionButton = {
            state = speedDialState,
            onFabClick = { expanded ->
                overlayVisible = !expanded
                speedDialState = SpeedDialState(!expanded)
        ) {

) {
        visible = overlayVisible,
        onClick = {
            overlayVisible = false
            speedDialState = speedDialState.toggle()

Action items

Add the FabWithLabel items to the SpeedDial:

    state = speedDialState,
    onFabClick = { expanded ->
        overlayVisible = !expanded
        speedDialState = SpeedDialState(!expanded)
) {
    item {
            onClick = { showToast(context, "Item 1 clicked!") },
            labelContent = { Text(text = "Item 1") },
        ) {
            Icon(Icons.Default.Share, null)
    item {
            onClick = { showToast(context, "Item 2 clicked!") },
            labelContent = { Text(text = "Item 2") },
        ) {
            Icon(Icons.Default.Share, null)

Basic use for Classic View


Add the SpeedDialView to your layout:

<com.leinardi.android.speeddial.SpeedDialView android:id="@+id/speedDial" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:layout_gravity="bottom|end" app:sdMainFabClosedSrc="@drawable/ic_add_white_24dp" />

Action items

Add the items to the SpeedDialView:

val speedDialView = findViewById<SpeedDialView>(R.id.speedDial)
    SpeedDialActionItem.Builder(R.id.fab_no_label, R.drawable.ic_link_white_24dp)

If the color customization is not requested, it is also possible to inflate the Action items form a Menu Resource:


Only the attributes android:id, android:icon and android:title are supported.

Click listeners

Add the click listeners:

speedDialView.setOnActionSelectedListener(SpeedDialView.OnActionSelectedListener { actionItem ->
    when (actionItem.id) {
        R.id.fab_no_label -> {
            showToast("No label action clicked!\nClosing with animation")
            speedDialView.close() // To close the Speed Dial with animation
            return@OnActionSelectedListener true // false will close it without animation

Optional steps

Add the main action click listener

speedDialView.setOnChangeListener(object : SpeedDialView.OnChangeListener {
    override fun onMainActionSelected(): Boolean {
        showToast("Main action clicked!")
        return false // True to keep the Speed Dial open

    override fun onToggleChanged(isOpen: Boolean) {
        Log.d(TAG, "Speed dial toggle state changed. Open = $isOpen")

Customizing the items

The SpeedDialActionItem.Builder provides several setters to customize the aspect of one item:

    SpeedDialActionItem.Builder(R.id.fab_custom_color, drawable)
        .setFabBackgroundColor(ResourcesCompat.getColor(getResources(), R.color.material_white_1000, getTheme()))
        .setFabImageTintColor(ResourcesCompat.getColor(getResources(), R.color.inbox_primary, getTheme()))
        .setLabelBackgroundColor(ResourcesCompat.getColor(getResources(), R.color.inbox_primary, getTheme()))

Is is also possible to specify a theme to easily change the FAB background and ripple effect color:

    SpeedDialActionItem.Builder(R.id.fab_custom_theme, R.drawable.ic_theme_white_24dp)

<style name="AppTheme.Purple" parent="AppTheme">
    <item name="colorPrimary">@color/material_purple_500</item>
    <item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/material_purple_700</item>
    <item name="colorAccent">@color/material_purple_a700</item>
    <item name="colorControlHighlight">@color/material_purple_200</item>

Adding an overlay/touch guard when the menu is open (like Inbox by Gmail)

You simply need to add the SpeedDialOverlayLayout to your layout:

<com.leinardi.android.speeddial.SpeedDialOverlayLayout android:id="@+id/overlay" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" />

and then provide the instance of that layout to the SpeedDialView:

<com.leinardi.android.speeddial.SpeedDialView android:id="@+id/speedDial" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" app:sdMainFabClosedSrc="@drawable/ic_add_white_24dp" app:sdOverlayLayout="@id/overlay" />


val overlayLayout = findViewById<SpeedDialOverlayLayout>(R.id.overlay)

Hiding the FAB when scrolling a RecyclerView or a NestedScrollView

Just apply the ScrollingViewSnackbarBehavior to the SpeedDialView. This can be done via XML using the convenience string resource @string/speeddial_scrolling_view_snackbar_behavior:

<com.leinardi.android.speeddial.SpeedDialView android:id="@+id/speedDial" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content" app:layout_behavior="@string/speeddial_scrolling_view_snackbar_behavior" />

Or programmatically:

val params = speedDialView.layoutParams as CoordinatorLayout.LayoutParams
params.behavior = SpeedDialView.ScrollingViewSnackbarBehavior()

NB: for the behaviors to work, SpeedDialView needs to be a direct child of CoordinatorLayout

Disabling SnackbarBehavior

Since the SnackbarBehavior is enabled by default and, afaik, it is not possible to remove a Behavior, simply use apply the SpeedDialView.NoBehavior instead:

val params = speedDialView.layoutParams as CoordinatorLayout.LayoutParams
params.behavior = SpeedDialView.NoBehavior()

Sample project

A fully working example is available here.




Sample app

Get it on the Play Store


API 27, API 16, bottom and left expansion


How can I create a new resource ID, required by the SpeedDialActionItem.Builder?

It can be done in XML using the <item type="id" />:

    <item name="fab_action1" type="id" />
    <item name="fab_action2" type="id" />
    <item name="fab_action3" type="id" />
    <item name="fab_action4" type="id" />

How can I change the maximum length of the label?

You can set a different value for the max length of the label overriding sd_label_max_width:

<dimen name="sd_label_max_width">240dp</dimen>

More info here.

How can I change the color of the overlay / touch guard layout?

The color of the SpeedDialOverlayLayout can be changed simply using the android:background attribute or, programmatically, using the equivalent setter like any other view.

How can I prevent the overlay / touch guard layout from going over the Toolbar inside a CoordinatorLayout?

It can be done using the attribute app:layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior":

<com.leinardi.android.speeddial.SpeedDialOverlayLayout android:id="@+id/overlay" android:layout_width="match_parent" android:layout_height="match_parent" app:layout_behavior="@string/appbar_scrolling_view_behavior" />
