<Ripple />

Adds a Material Design “ripple” effect to an element.



The Ripple component is used to add a Material Design ripple effect to an element. This effect will expand from the location point the user taps until it covers the whole element.

To add a ripple effect to an element the Ripple component should be placed as a child.

<div style={{width: 100, height: 100, backgroundColor: 'grey'}}>
  <Ripple />

The color of the ripple effect defaults to gray. It can be customized using the color property. It is also possible to customize the background color with the background property.

<Ripple color='red' background='blue' />

The ripple prop

There are some components that support the ripple effect using a ripple property. The Button component is one of those. In this case, instead of using the Ripple component only the property ripple needs to be added:

<Button ripple>

Other components that support the ripple property are: ListItem, Fab, SpeedDial and Tab.
