1 Dec 20227 minutes to read

The Speed dial control can be positioned anywhere on the target using the position property. If the target is not defined, then Speed Dial is positioned based on the browser viewport.

The position values of Speed Dial are as follows:

  • TopLeft
  • TopCenter
  • TopRight
  • MiddleLeft
  • MiddleCenter
  • MiddleRight
  • BottomLeft
  • BottomCenter
  • BottomRight
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<div id="targetElement" style="position:relative;min-height:350px;border:1px solid;"><div>
    <!-- To Render SpeedDial component. -->
    <button ejs-speeddial id="speeddial" content='Add' position='BottomLeft' target='#targetElement'></button>`
})

export class AppComponent { }
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { SpeedDialModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-buttons';

/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        SpeedDialModule// Registering EJ2 SpeedDial Module.
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);

Opens items on hover

You can open the Speed Dial action items on mouse hover by setting the opensOnHover property.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<!-- To Render SpeedDial component. -->
    <button ejs-speeddial id="speeddial" openIconCss='e-icons e-edit' closeIconCss='e-icons e-close' target='#targetElement' [items]='items' [opensOnHover]= 'true'></button>`
})

export class AppComponent {
  public items: SpeedDialItemModel[] = [
    { iconCss: 'e-icons e-cut' },
    { iconCss: 'e-icons e-copy' },
    { iconCss: 'e-icons e-paste' }
  ];
}

Programmatically show/hide Speed Dial items

You can open/close the Speed Dial action items programmatically using show and hide methods.

Below example demonstrates open/close action items on button click.

import { Component, ViewChild, HostListener } from '@angular/core';
import { SkeletonComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-buttons';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<div id="targetElement" style="position:relative;min-height:340px;border:1px solid;padding:10px;">
    <button id="show" (click)="show()">Show</button>
    <button id="hide" (click)="hide()">Hide</button><div>
    <!-- To Render SpeedDial component. -->
    <button ejs-speeddial #speeddial openIconCss='e-icons e-edit' closeIconCss='e-icons e-close' target='#targetElement' [opensOnHover]= 'true' [items]='items'></button>`
})

export class AppComponent {
    @ViewChild('speeddial')
    public speeddialObj:SpeedDialComponent;

    public items: SpeedDialItemModel[] = [
        { iconCss: 'e-icons e-cut' },
        { iconCss: 'e-icons e-copy' },
        { iconCss: 'e-icons e-paste' }
    ];
    public show() {
        this.speeddialObj.show();
    }
    public hide() {
        this.speeddialObj.hide();
    }
}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { SpeedDialModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-buttons';

/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        SpeedDialModule// Registering EJ2 SpeedDial Module.
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);

Programmatically refresh the position

You can refresh the position of the Speed Dial using refreshPosition method when the targetposition is changed.

import { Component, ViewChild, HostListener } from '@angular/core';
import { SkeletonComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-buttons';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<div id="targetElement" style="position:relative;min-height:340px;border:1px solid;padding:10px;">
    <button id="refresh" (click)="refresh()">Refresh</button><div>
    <!-- To Render SpeedDial component. -->
    <button ejs-speeddial #speeddial openIconCss='e-icons e-edit' closeIconCss='e-icons e-close' position='MiddleRight' target='#targetElement' [items]='items'></button>`
})

export class AppComponent {
    @ViewChild('speeddial')
    public speeddialObj:SpeedDialComponent;

    public items: SpeedDialItemModel[] = [
        { iconCss: 'e-icons e-cut' },
        { iconCss: 'e-icons e-copy' },
        { iconCss: 'e-icons e-paste' }
    ];
    public refresh() {
        document.getElementById("targetElement").style.minHeight = "300px";
        this.speeddialObj.refreshPosition();
    }
}
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { SpeedDialModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-buttons';

/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,
        SpeedDialModule// Registering EJ2 SpeedDial Module.
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);
