You can use the Floating Actions UI Pattern to display an action that floats in the bottom right corner of the screen, providing access to a set of additional actions.
Use the Floating Action UI Pattern to show the primary action on a screen. You can choose actions such as create, share, explore, but it is advised to avoid actions such as delete, archive, or an alert. Exclude limited actions such as cut-and-paste text or actions that should be in a toolbar.
How to use the Floating Actions UI Pattern
In Service Studio, in the Toolbox, search for
The Floating Actions widget is displayed.
From the Toolbox, drag the Floating Actions widget into the Main Content area of your application's screen.
By default, the Floating Actions widget contains a Button placeholder (with an icon) and an Items placeholder with 3 Floating Actions Item widgets (each containing a Label and Item placeholder). You can add or delete the Floating Actions Item widgets as required.
Add the relevant content to the placeholders.
In this example, we add text to the Label placeholders and linked icons to the Item placeholders.
Select the Floating Actions widget, and on the Properties tab, set the relevant properties, for example, whether the actions are expanded and visible when the page loads.
After following these steps and publishing the module, you can test the pattern in your app.
|IsExpanded (Boolean): Optional||If True, the floating actions are expanded and immediately visible on screen. If False, the floating actions are not visible. This is the default.|
|IsHover (Boolean): Optional||If True, the floating actions are triggered by hovering the mouse pointer over them. If False, the floating actions are not triggered by hovering the mouse pointer over them. This is the default.|
|ExtendedClass (Text): Optional||Add custom style classes to the Floating Actions UI Pattern. You define your custom style classes in your application using CSS.
