Usage

The icon for the FAB can be a local image in your app or an image/icon from the App_Resources.

Plain NativeScript

<Page xmlns="http://schemas.nativescript.org/tns.xsd" loaded="pageLoaded"
xmlns:FAB="@nstudio/nativescript-floatingactionbutton">

<ActionBar title="Native FAB" />
<grid-layout rows="auto, *">
<list-view row="1" items="{{ users }}">
<list-view.itemTemplate>
<label text="{{ name }}" />
</list-view.itemTemplate>
</list-view>
<FAB:fab tap="fabTap"
row="1"
icon="'~/assets/ic_add_white.png'"
rippleColor="#f1f1f1"
class="fab-button" />

</grid-layout>
</Page>

NativeScript Angular

import { registerElement } from 'nativescript-angular/element-registry';
registerElement(
'Fab',
() => require('@nstudio/nativescript-floatingactionbutton').Fab
);

HTML

<StackLayout>
<FAB (tap)="fabTap()" icon="'~/assets/ic_add_white.png'" rippleColor="#f1f1f1" class="fab-button"></FAB>
</StackLayout>

NativeScript Vue

import Vue from 'nativescript-vue';

Vue.registerElement(
'Fab',
() => require('@nstudio/nativescript-floatingactionbutton').Fab
);

Template

<template>
<page>
<grid-layout rows="auto, *">
<list-view row="1" items="{{ users }}">
<list-view.itemTemplate>
<label text="{{ name }}" textWrap="true" />
</list-view.itemTemplate>
</list-view>
<fab
@tap="fabTap"
row="1"
icon="res://ic_add_white"
rippleColor="#f1f1f1"
class="fab-button"
>
</fab>
</grid-layout>
</page>
</template>

CSS

Recommended CSS styles.

.fab-button {
height: 70;
width: 70; /// this is required on iOS - Android does not require width so you might need to adjust styles
margin: 15;
background-color: #ff4081;
horizontal-align: right;
vertical-align: bottom;
}

Use Icon Fonts

First you need to setup icon fonts as described in NativeScript documentation.

After this, you can use icon fonts on FAB by specifiying the unicode as text and add the fas/far class:

<FAB:fab text="&#xf02a;" class="fab-button fas" />
