A Floating Action Button (FAB) represents the primary action in a Page. But, it’s not limited to only a single action. It can contain any number of sub-actions too. And more importantly, it can also be used inline in your Pages or Layouts.
Note that you don’t need a QLayout to use FABs.
There are two types of FABs: expandable (has sub-actions) and non-expandable.
For an exhausting list of options, please read the API cards (at the top of this page).
If you want a non-expandable FAB, all you need is a round button – wrapped in QPageSticky if used on a QLayout.
