For using this functionality we need to first create a react native app or may be you have and existing one, then use this with your existing app.

react-native init FABDesign

cd FABDesign

For designing custom floating action button you need to put the following code within your render method.

render()
 return(
    <TouchableOpacity activeOpacity={0.8} 
       onPress={()=>{Alert.alert('FAB Clicked)}}
       style={styles.touchableOpacityStyle}>
            <Image
                source={Images.plus_icon} //put your plus icon path
                style={styles.floatingButtonStyle}
            />
    </TouchableOpacity>
 )

Step 4 – Styling

Here we are going to provide the definition of CSS class.

The position property specifies the type of positioning method used for an element.
There are five different position values:

  • static
  • relative
  • fixed
  • absolute
  • sticky
const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  container: {
    flex: 1,
    backgroundColor: Colors.white,
  },
  touchableOpacityStyle: {
    position: 'absolute',
    width: 50,
    height:50,
    borderWidth: 0,
    alignItems: 'center',
    justifyContent: 'center',
    right: 30,
    bottom: 30,
    borderRadius: 40,
    backgroundColor:"pink",
  },
  floatingButtonStyle: {
    resizeMode: 'contain',
    width: 25,
    height: 25,
    tintColor:'white',
    //backgroundColor:'black'
  },
});
