Now we just have to wait for floating images and floating text…
Lol yes! But be careful about ux design and user experience, not being annoying to use your app
I’m so stoked for this Component!
But like @Lucas_Pires mentioned - UX design and experience is very important - and this button is definitely a positive addition for Gliders looking to build some amazing apps!
It has (like the current Button) so many possibilities to enhance Glide apps, but in a more user AND design-friendly way. Paired with Conditional Visibility and ITE’s there could be some pretty cool apps built! I already see the gears in some peoples heads turning (and grinding thinking about how much stuff they’ll want to re-design haha).
(If not, no worries - because we all know it’s worth the wait!)
This, and the new potential of an eventual Glide API, is the definition of “Christmas came early!”.
I’m hoping it’s this week because it would fit in perfectly in an app I’m building for a client. My deadline for this app is end of week / beginning of next week. I imagine it won’t be long!
Ahh I really wanna use this component but I already have a form for another add button, and I will lose all the layout the form has. There’s no way to export the layout of a form to another form, is there?
You shouldn’t lose the layout. You are just changing the button style. Not creating a new button.
I think I would. I had a floating button in the form of rich text, and now adding another component will make me remake the entire form again… Right?
The thing is, I am creating a new button.
The CSS form button we have done before is still acting on a regular button. Once this update is released, you should be able to remove the rich text with the CSS, which will change the old CSS floating button to a regular button. Then change the style of that button to the new floating style. It’s no different than changing the background color on buttons from semi opaque to clear.
Here’s a great article on floating button UX best practices:
I can’t wait to work on it, way easier!
Ah, great idea!
Ohh… Is it not possible to stack floating buttons horizontally?
Just saw Floating button is in my production environment… seems to be good to go!
Man, it’s EXTREMELY buggy. It you change it to, let’s say, transparent, and then change it back to filled, then it turns into a regular button, and not a floating button.
Hmm… well can’t say I’ve tested it, just that I’ve seen it! Haha… hopefully the bugs get identified and resolved quickly!
Yeah, I would have thought that you could change back and forth between a regular button and a floating button. Seems that once you change the style (Show As), you are stuck with a regular button. It’s not showing the floating style like staging shows.
Yessssss!! They should’ve kept it like that! @Mark any idea when this will be fixed?
Makes such a difference in the Professional Network App I’m working on. Now users can add a new post as they’re scrolling and don’t have the scroll to top first!
Looks like it’s fixed now. Definitely going to replace my CSS floaters tonight. Still would like a semi-transparent blurred float option someday.
Get rid of the ‘floaters’ made me laugh.
