Object

When there is only one SpeedDialAction on a page, it is represented by a Floating Action Button (FAB).

When there are multiple SpeedDialActions, they are collected in a speed dial menu that can contain up to five actions. In this case, the FAB opens the menu. You can use the floatingActionButtonConfig object to change the maximum number of actions, and the FAB's position and icons in the opened and closed states.
