Stack overflow and fabImageResource not working.

See original GitHub issue

Step 1: Are you in the right place?

  • I have verified there are no duplicate active or recent bugs, questions, or requests
  • I have verified that I am using the latest version of the library.

Step 2: Describe your environment

  • Library version: 3.2.0
  • Android version: 10
  • Support library version:
  • Device brand: OnePlus
  • Device model: 7 Pro (Also tested not working on a Xiaomi device)

Step 3: Describe the problem:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. setContentDescription on SpeedDialView
  2. use new SpeedDialActionItem.Builder() as before (unchanged)
  3. Run app and it crashes due to stack overflow by setContentDescription calling itself too many times
  4. Removing the setContentDescription line works, but the icons on the FAB are missing

Relevant Code:

        SpeedDialView speedDialView = findViewById(;
                new SpeedDialActionItem
                        .Builder(, R.drawable.ic_done_black_24dp)
    java.lang.StackOverflowError: stack size 8192KB

Another workaround: set colorOnSecondary in styles.xml. E.g.

    <item name="colorOnSecondary">#ffffff</item>

Calling .setFabImageTintColor doesn’t seem to be possible if inflating the menu from a menu.xml.

I have the same problem with fab icons go missing. I’ve tried to reproduce the problem but I can’t. I have implemented the exact same code from my project into the sample app and it just works.

One thing that I notice and for now is a workaround, setting an image tint color makes the image appear: .setFabImageTintColor(ContextCompat.getColor(mActivity, R.color.white))

Another thing is that, SpeedDialView now responds to system lightning (DarkMode and LightMode) and changes it’s behaviour accordingly:

-icons are tinted automatically in an unpleasant way so it’s better to ovrride this behaviour with .setFabImageTintColor(ContextCompat.getColor(mActivity, R.color.white))

-label background changes color automatically . Here we can use .setLabelBackgroundColor(ContextCompat.getColor(mActivity, R.color.white)) to stop changing color.
