By default when you enable Floating Action Button from HouziBuilder, it always open Quick Add Property.

You can customize the Floating Action Button on the Navigation Bar (tab bar).

To customize the FAB, do following:

  1. You need to Enable FAB via HouziBuilder, then export and save configurations.
  2. Customize it with hooks.

Note: Enabling FAB from Houzi Builder is necessary. For quick enabling, you can add or edit "show_bottom_navbar_add_button": true, to your configuration.json file.

To customize FAB, you need to open following file:

Project_HOME > lib > hooks_v2.dart

Look for the getAddPlusButtonInBottomBarHook() method.

You will be provided with some code in this method. Just comment or remove the return null; statement and un-comment the commented below code:

Now define your custom Action, that you want to perform when the Floating Action Button will be pressed, in the onPressed method.

Code Preview:

  AddPlusButtonInBottomBarHook getAddPlusButtonInBottomBarHook() {
    AddPlusButtonInBottomBarHook hook = (BuildContext context) {
      /// If you wish to include a Plus button in the center of the bottom bar,
      /// return your widget else return null.
      /// Please note that this approach is not compatible with BOTTOM BAR DESIGN_02.

      // return null;

      return Container(
        width: 65,
        height: 65,
        margin: const EdgeInsets.only(top: 0),
        child: FloatingActionButton(
          backgroundColor: AppThemePreferences.appSecondaryColor,
          child: Icon(Icons.add,color: Colors.white,size: 35),
          elevation: 4.0,
          onPressed: () {
            // add your custom action here

    return hook;

Note: Add Floating Action Button is not availble for Navigation Bar Design 02.
