I spy a floating button in staging 👀

It’d be cool if there was an “edit” action like the pencil on the top right…

Have always wanted an “edit” action and a “delete” action for the buttons.

It would be easy for glide, right @david? Would be a super cool feature

Hi @David,

There is another rare bug when you use more than 1 floating button on same screen using Safari.

Instead of having something like this

on my iPhone I see this funny icon!!.. the last icon/button takes the size belonging to other three ones :upside_down_face:

If you see the APP on Windows vía Chrome or Glide Editor everything looks fine but on Safari (iPhone 6 Plus), this bug appears.

Saludos y feliz día!

Thanks @Jason. Loving this functionality, already converted a number of buttons to float and it has transformed the user experience :+1:

I actually like that.

@Robert_Petitto what does the edit pencil do?
Can you take over the edit pencil on an item?

No, it opens a “write new post” (show form action)

Possible to do visibility logic on the floating buttons - quite nice I think.

It could be nice if it was possible to adjust the colors of the buttons - like it is done on tripadvisor
@Mark wouldn’t that be a nice thing :slight_smile:

Didn’t even think to do this…SUCH a good idea!

@Krivo nice example, thanks

That’s impressive idea

I’m using the button for something super-simple - my app is a combo product catalog and business card (on steroids, thank you Glide) - so I just made a floating “call me” button - click and you can instantly connect. At least with my Google Voice number :wink: This is a great addition to my app! Also, I added a large empty divider at the bottom of my app so someone can scroll completely past the button to view all text.

Can we use the floating button now, or is it still in staging?

It’s here. Basically a new button style.

Looking forward to using multiple buttons on the iPhone once it is fixed. Will be checking through out today for update.
