Ionic FAB Button
Ionic FAB are Floating Action Buttons that acts as a container element. They are material design components that can contain one or more fab buttons. It should be placed in a fixed position so that it does not scroll with the content. The FAB must contain one main fab-button. It also includes a fab-lists, which contains related buttons that show when the main fab-button is pressed/clicked. It also allows to contain several fab list elements with different side values. The FAB buttons are shaped like a circle. We can access the floating action button by using a standard <ion-fab> component.
The idea behind having a FAB button is used as a call to the promoted action on a page. For example, if you have a list of items and you want to add one more item, then the add button can be used as a Floating Action Button.
By default, the floating action button is fixed at the right bottom corner. But, we can also configure the FAB buttons to provide the default action within the view. For example, it can be fixed at a specific position, or it can be a scroll with the view, etc.
The following example explains the working of the FAB button in an Ionic application. Here, we are going to take three <ion-fab-button> inside the <ion-fab> component and add the icons for all of these buttons.

The button can also specify to appear at the specific position by setting the side property start, end, top, and bottom. The below example explains how <ion-fab-list> work with <ion-fab-button>.
