Jetpack Compose Button Types with Examples

jetpack compose button example

These are the button types in Jetpack Compose. The button types are Button, OutlinedButton, TextButton, IconButton, and IconToggleButton.

The Button is a normal button that follows Android material design guidelines.

The OutlinedButton has a border around it and text inside of it.

The TextButton contains just text. It has no border and background. It shows a nice ripple when you tap on it.

The IconButton has an icon. You can add on click even on it. For example, a share button.

The IconToggleButton has two states. You can change its state by tapping on it. For example, the favorite icon on e-commerce apps. When you tap on it, it turns pink. When you tap on it again, it turns grey. I have removed the ripple effect on it to make it look beautiful. These are the available button types in Android Jetpack Compose.

If you want to use the code, you need to download the latest Android Studio. Jetpack Compose doesn’t work in the older versions.
