Screenshots

Show/hide when user scrolls down/up

Set custom OnTouchListener for scrollable view:

import com.shamanland.fab.FloatingActionButton;
import com.shamanland.fab.ShowHideOnScroll;

// ...

FloatingActionButton fab = (FloatingActionButton) findViewById(R.id.fab);

ListView listView = (ListView) findViewById(android.R.id.list);
listView.setOnTouchListener(new ShowHideOnScroll(fab));

With custom animations:

listView.setOnTouchListener(new ShowHideOnScroll(fab, R.anim.custom_show, R.anim.custom_hide));

Customizing

Use theme to customize all floating buttons in your app:

Declare own style:

<style name="AppTheme.Fab" parent="FloatingActionButton">
    <item name="floatingActionButtonColor">@color/my_fab_color</item>
</style>

Link this style in your theme:

<style name="AppTheme" parent="android:Theme">
    <item name="floatingActionButtonStyle">@style/AppTheme.Fab</item>
</style>

Customizing in layout.xml:

<com.shamanland.fab.FloatingActionButton
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:src="@drawable/ic_action_my"
    app:floatingActionButtonColor="@color/my_fab_color"
    app:floatingActionButtonSize="mini"
    />

Customizing in java-code:

FloatingActionButton fab = (FloatingActionButton) findViewById(R.id.fab);
fab.setSize(FloatingActionButton.SIZE_MINI);
fab.setColor(Color.RED);
// NOTE invoke this method after setting new values!
fab.initBackground();
// NOTE standard method of ImageView
fab.setImageResource(R.drawable.ic_action_my);

Using of android:elevation attribute

By default FloatingActionButton sets elevation implicitly for API level 21 and higher.

In order to disable implicit behavior use attribute app:floatingActionButtonImplicitElevation="false".

<com.shamanland.fab.FloatingActionButton
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:src="@drawable/ic_action_my"
    android:elevation="5dp"
    app:floatingActionButtonImplicitElevation="false"
    />
