In this video I’ll show you how to use the Speed Dial Button Menu with KivyMD.

The KivyMD Speed Dial Button, MDFloatingActionButtonSpeedDial, is a little round icon that sits at the bottom of your app. Click on it and it expands with other icons in a sort of menu.

In this video I’ll show you how to make one, and how to write code to function when someone clicks one of the menu icons. We’ll also look at color options.

Python Code:
GitHub Code:

from kivy.lang import Builder
from import MDApp

class MainApp(MDApp):

	data = {
		"language-python": "Python",
		"language-ruby": "Ruby",
		"language-javascript": "JS"
	def callback(self, instance):
		if instance.icon == 'language-python':
			lang = "Python"
		elif instance.icon == 'language-javascript':
			lang = "JS"
		elif instance.icon == 'language-ruby':
			lang = "Ruby"

		self.root.ids.my_label.text = f'You Pressed {lang}'

	def open(self):
		self.root.ids.my_label.text = f'Open!!'		

	# Close
	def close(self):
		self.root.ids.my_label.text = f'Close!!!'				

	def build(self):
		self.theme_cls.theme_style = "Dark"
		self.theme_cls.primary_palette = "BlueGray"
		return Builder.load_file('sd.kv')
