<ion-fab> is not a FAB button by itself but a container that assist the fab button (<button ion-fab>) allowing it to be placed in fixed position that does not scroll with the content. It is also used to implement "material design speed dial", ie. a FAB buttons displays a small lists of related actions when clicked.

Usage

<!-- this fab is placed at top right -->
<ion-content>
 <ion-fab top right>
   <button ion-fab>Button</button>
 </ion-fab>

 <!-- this fab is placed at the center of the content viewport -->
 <ion-fab center middle>
   <button ion-fab>Button</button>
 </ion-fab>
</ion-content>

Ionic's FAB also supports "material design's fab speed dial". It is a normal fab button that shows a list of related actions when clicked.

The same ion-fab container can contain several ion-fab-list with different side values: top, bottom, left and right. For example, if you want to have a list of button that are on the top of the main button, you should use side="top" and so on. By default, if side is ommited, side="bottom".

<ion-content>
 <!-- this fab is placed at bottom right -->
 <ion-fab bottom right >
   <button ion-fab>Share</button>
   <ion-fab-list side="top">
     <button ion-fab>Facebook</button>
     <button ion-fab>Twitter</button>
     <button ion-fab>Youtube</button>
   </ion-fab-list>
   <ion-fab-list side="left">
     <button ion-fab>Vimeo</button>
   </ion-fab-list>
 </ion-fab>
</ion-content>

A FAB speed dial can also be closed programatically.

<ion-content>
 <ion-fab bottom right #fab>
   <button ion-fab>Share</button>
   <ion-fab-list side="top">
     <button ion-fab (click)="share('facebook', fab)">Facebook</button>
