A little iOS experiment, a Floating Action Button.

As Cocoapod

pod 'MNFloatingActionButton', '~> 2,0'

Alternatively, add the images and .h &.m files to your project.

General Usage

Just like a normal button, you instantiate with a frame and add as a subview.

 MNFloatingActionButton *button = [[MNFloatingActionButton alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0,0,50,50)];
 [self.view addSubview:button];

As it is a subclass of UIControl, you can add a target to listen to touch events. The touch events that are sent are:

  • UIControlEventTouchUpInside
  • UIControlEventTouchCancel


You can also use MNFloatingActionButton in Storyboards and xibs by creating a UIView object and changing it’s custom class to MNFloatingActionButton.


There are currently 6 properties that you can modify to customise your button. They are:

  • centerImage – Set to nil if you don’t want an image
  • backgroundColor – Defaults to some kinda blue
  • shadowColor – Defaults to the background color.
  • shadowOpacity – Default is 0.6f
  • shadowRadius – Default is 1.5f
  • animationScale – Set’s the end size of button when pressed. Defaults to 0.85f
  • animationDuration – Defaults to 0.05f


I did this because I thought it might be fun for people to play around with. If you like, or you don’t like it, then help make it better with a PR!
