How to Make Speed Dial Expandable Floating Action Menu in Flutter

In this example, we are going to show you the easiest way to make a speed dial expandable and collapsable menu on the Floating Action Button. Whenever user presses the FAB, the menu will expand or close according to its state. See the example below for more details:

First, you need to add flutter_speed_dial Flutter package in your dependency by adding following line in pubspec.yaml file:

dependencies:
  flutter:
    sdk: flutter
  flutter_speed_dial: ^3.0.5

To add Speed Dial Expandable Floating Action Menu:

import 'package:flutter_speed_dial/flutter_speed_dial.dart';
//import package 

Scaffold(
  floatingActionButton: SpeedDial( //Speed dial menu
    marginBottom: 10, //margin bottom
    icon: Icons.menu, //icon on Floating action button
    activeIcon: Icons.close, //icon when menu is expanded on button
    backgroundColor: Colors.deepOrangeAccent, //background color of button
    foregroundColor: Colors.white, //font color, icon color in button
    activeBackgroundColor: Colors.deepPurpleAccent, //background color when menu is expanded
    activeForegroundColor: Colors.white,
    buttonSize: 56.0, //button size
    visible: true,
    closeManually: false,
    curve: Curves.bounceIn,
    overlayColor: Colors.black,
    overlayOpacity: 0.5,
    onOpen: () => print('OPENING DIAL'), // action when menu opens
    onClose: () => print('DIAL CLOSED'), //action when menu closes

    elevation: 8.0, //shadow elevation of button
    shape: CircleBorder(), //shape of button
    
    children: [
      SpeedDialChild( //speed dial child
        child: Icon(Icons.accessibility),
        backgroundColor: Colors.red,
        foregroundColor: Colors.white,
        label: 'First Menu Child',
        labelStyle: TextStyle(fontSize: 18.0),
        onTap: () => print('FIRST CHILD'),
        onLongPress: () => print('FIRST CHILD LONG PRESS'),
      ),
      SpeedDialChild(
        child: Icon(Icons.brush),
        backgroundColor: Colors.blue,
        foregroundColor: Colors.white,
        label: 'Second Menu Child',
        labelStyle: TextStyle(fontSize: 18.0),
        onTap: () => print('SECOND CHILD'),
        onLongPress: () => print('SECOND CHILD LONG PRESS'),
      ),
      SpeedDialChild(
        child: Icon(Icons.keyboard_voice),
        foregroundColor: Colors.white,
        backgroundColor: Colors.green,
        label: 'Third Menu Child',
        labelStyle: TextStyle(fontSize: 18.0),
        onTap: () => print('THIRD CHILD'),
        onLongPress: () => print('THIRD CHILD LONG PRESS'),
      ),

      //add more menu item childs here
    ],
  ),
)

              ),
              SpeedDialChild(
                child: Icon(Icons.keyboard_voice),
                foregroundColor: Colors.white,
                backgroundColor: Colors.green,
