Icons in EJ2 TypeScript Floating action button control

10 May 20235 minutes to read

You can customize the icon and text of JavaScript Floating Action Button(FAB) using iconCss and content properties.

FAB with icon

You can show icon only in Floating Action Button by setting iconCss property. You can show tooltip on hover to show additional details to end-user by setting title attribute.

import { Fab } from '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons';

// Initialize the Floating Action Button control
let fab: Fab = new Fab({
    iconCss: 'fab-icons fab-icon-people',
    target: '#targetElement'
});

// Render initialized Floating Action Button
fab.appendTo('#fab');

FAB with icon and text

You can show icon along with text in Floating Action Button by setting iconCss and content properties.

import { Fab } from '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons';

// Initialize the Floating Action Button control
let fab: Fab = new Fab({
    iconCss: 'fab-icons fab-icon-people',
    content:'Contacts',
    target: '#targetElement'
});

// Render initialized Floating Action Button
fab.appendTo('#fab');

Icon position

You can change the position of icon when showing along with content by setting iconPosition property. By default, the icon is positioned on the left side together with text.

import { Fab } from '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons';

// Initialize the Floating Action Button control
let fab: Fab = new Fab({
    iconCss: 'fab-icons fab-icon-people',
    content:'Contacts',
    target: '#targetElement',
    iconPosition: 'Right'
});

// Render initialized Floating Action Button
fab.appendTo('#fab');

Below example demonstrates a FAB with icon and text.

import { Fab } from '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

// Initialize the Floating Action Button control
let fab: Fab = new Fab({
    iconCss: 'fab-icons fab-icon-people',
    content:'Contacts',
    target: '#targetElement',
    iconPosition: 'Right'
});

// Render initialized Floating Action Button
fab.appendTo('#fab');
