How to change Floating Action Button Icon Color in Android

In this android code snippet, we are going to see how to change floating action button icon color in android.

If you want to change the floating action button background color in android, I will suggest you read my previous tutorial.

We can achieve this in android in XML or programmatically.

The simplest way to change floating action button color is by assigning a color value to colorTintlike the code below.

activity_floating_action_button.xml

<android.support.design.widget.FloatingActionButton
    android:id="@+id/fab"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content"
    android:tint="@android:color/pink"
    android:src="@android:drawable/ic_input_add"/>

You have seen how we use colorTintin the XML above.

We can achieve the same result programmatically using the code below.

Drawable fabDrawable = getResources().getDrawable(android.R.drawable.ic_edit);
Drawable newFabIcon = fabDrawable.getConstantState().newDrawable();
newFabIcon.mutate().setColorFilter(Color.WHITE, PorterDuff.Mode.MULTIPLY);
