Android Studio – Movable/Draggable Floating Action Button

Hello friends, in today’s article, if you want to make any subject Movable/Draggable in android-studio, then you can stay with this article.

Many times it happens that we implement a subject in our Android application, then it is very important for us to track it, otherwise, that subject covers any part of us, which causes us a lot of trouble, such as floating.

What happens is that the action bar is rotated or opened and the application is covered from somewhere, this causes a lot of trouble to the user, so today I am going to show you all how to make the floating action outside Movable / Draggable. I have told about it in this article

How to Create Movable/Draggable any Subject in android studio

Android Studio

I am going to take floating action bar in this case, I am going to show you how to make floating action bar Movable/Draggable in this project!

try this code

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements View.OnTouchListener {
  float dX;
  float dY;
  int lastAction;

  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    final View dragView = findViewById(;

  public boolean onTouch(View view, MotionEvent event) {
    switch (event.getActionMasked()) {
      case MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN:
        dX = view.getX() - event.getRawX();
        dY = view.getY() - event.getRawY();
        lastAction = MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN;

      case MotionEvent.ACTION_MOVE:
        view.setY(event.getRawY() + dY);
        view.setX(event.getRawX() + dX);
        lastAction = MotionEvent.ACTION_MOVE;

      case MotionEvent.ACTION_UP:
        if (lastAction == MotionEvent.ACTION_DOWN)
          Toast.makeText(DraggableView.this, "Clicked!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

        return false;
    return true;

and try this XML Code


The first given code has to be implemented inside the Java file and you have to implement the second file inside the XML, after that your subject will be draggable.
