Overloads

@Composable
fun BottomAppBar(
    windowInsets: WindowInsets,
    modifier: Modifier = Modifier,
    backgroundColor: Color = MaterialTheme.colors.primarySurface,
    contentColor: Color = contentColorFor(backgroundColor),
    cutoutShape: Shape? = null,
    elevation: Dp = AppBarDefaults.BottomAppBarElevation,
    contentPadding: PaddingValues = AppBarDefaults.ContentPadding,
    content: @Composable RowScope.() -> Unit
)

Parameters

namedescription
windowInsetsa window insets that app bar will respect.
modifierThe [Modifier] to be applied to this BottomAppBar
backgroundColorThe background color for the BottomAppBar. Use [Color.Transparent] to have no color.
contentColorThe preferred content color provided by this BottomAppBar to its children. Defaults to either the matching content color for [backgroundColor], or if [backgroundColor] is not a color from the theme, this will keep the same value set above this BottomAppBar.
cutoutShapethe shape of the cutout that will be added to the BottomAppBar - this should typically be the same shape used inside the [FloatingActionButton], when [BottomAppBar] and [FloatingActionButton] are being used together in [Scaffold]. This shape will be drawn with an offset around all sides. If null, where will be no cutout.
elevationthe elevation of this BottomAppBar.
contentPaddingthe padding applied to the content of this BottomAppBar
contentthe content of this BottomAppBar. The default layout here is a [Row], so content inside will be placed horizontally.

Code Example

SimpleBottomAppBar

@Composable
@Sampled
fun SimpleBottomAppBar() {
    BottomAppBar(windowInsets = AppBarDefaults.bottomAppBarWindowInsets) {
        // Leading icons should typically have a high content alpha
        CompositionLocalProvider(LocalContentAlpha provides ContentAlpha.high) {
            IconButton(onClick = { /* doSomething() */ }) {
                Icon(Icons.Filled.Menu, contentDescription = "Localized description")
            }
        }
        // The actions should be at the end of the BottomAppBar. They use the default medium
        // content alpha provided by BottomAppBar
        Spacer(Modifier.weight(1f, true))
        IconButton(onClick = { /* doSomething() */ }) {
            Icon(Icons.Filled.Favorite, contentDescription = "Localized description")
