Speed dial

The speed dial component is a Material Design component that displays a floating action button that expands into a menu when tapped. It’s useful for situations where there are several actions needs to be displayed that are of equal importance.

To display a normal floating action button the Fab component can be used.

The menu items of the SpeedDial component are defined using the SpeedDialItem component. It also requires a Fab component which represents the main button.

To define the position of the component the position property is used. By default it is placed in the bottom right corner which can also be achieved by setting the property to the literal string "bottom right".

In order for the SpeedDial component to be fixed when scrolling the page, it needs to be put outside the page. This can be archived by rendering it in the renderFixed function of the Page component.

  renderFixed={() => (
    <SpeedDial position='bottom right'>
      <SpeedDialItem onClick={this.doSomething}>B</SpeedDialItem>
      <SpeedDialItem onClick={this.doSomethingElse}>C</SpeedDialItem>
  )} />
