draggable_floating_button #

We all like the Floating Action Button Widget, but how can it be better?

Well, we made a Draggable Floating Action Button!

You can use it to make the user interact in crazy and unexpected ways with your application.

How Can I Get This Widget? #

  1. Add draggable_floating_button to your pubspec.yaml file
  2. When the notification bar pops up in Android Studio prompting you to get Packages, do so

Get Packages

  1. Add an import statement in your Dart code like so, import 'package:draggable_floating_button/draggable_floating_button.dart';
  2. You are ready to create draggable floating actions buttons

Usage #

          offset: new Offset(200, 200),
          backgroundColor: Theme.of(context).accentColor,
          child: new Icon(
               color: lightDfabColor,
          onPressed: () => foo(),
          appContext: context,
          appBar: appBar,
          data: 'your_data',

The Draggable Floating Action Button (or DFAB), can be created just like the Floating Action Button, but it has a few features in addition:

  • You need to pass in an Offset object, to letting the button know where to position itself

  • You need to pass in the context and appBar of your application in order for the button to calculate correctly which where it has been dragged to across the application.

  • The data field works in a similar fashion it works in a Draggable widget
