Expand Widget

Package License Stars PayPal Patreon

This Dart package offers developers a streamlined library of Flutter widgets, useful for expanding general & text widgets, when user wishes.

When the users clicks the 'expand' arrow, the hidden widgets or content unfold with a cool animation.

There are two main 'expand' widgets:

  • Expand Child: Useful to show more widgets related to the content already visible by the user.
  • Expand Text: Useful when texts can be quite big for a small screen. It adds the ability to show the full content if the user wants to.
  • Show Child: In contrast to the 'Expand Child' widget, it doesn't have the ability to hide again the content.

Example

Here is an example of a simple use of this package, from the ExpandChild, ExpandText & ShowChild widgets. If you want to take a deeper look at the example, take a look at the example/ folder provided with the project.

ExpandChild(
  child: Column(
    children: <Widget>[
      OutlineButton(
        child: Text('Button1'),
        onPressed: () => print('Pressed button1'),
      ),
      OutlineButton(
        child: Text('Button2'),
        onPressed: () => print('Pressed button2'),
      ),
      OutlineButton(
        child: Text('Button3'),
        onPressed: () => print('Pressed button3'),
      ),
    ],
  ),
),
ExpandText(
  'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.',
  textAlign: TextAlign.justify,
),
ShowChild(
indicator: Padding(
  padding: EdgeInsets.all(8),
  child: Text(
    "SHOW MORE",
    style: TextStyle(
      color: Theme.of(context).textTheme.caption.color,
    ),
  ),
),
child: Column(
  children: <Widget>[
    OutlineButton(
      child: Text('Button1'),
      onPressed: () => print('Pressed button1'),
    ),
    OutlineButton(
      child: Text('Button2'),
      onPressed: () => print('Pressed button2'),
    ),
    OutlineButton(
      child: Text('Button3'),
      onPressed: () => print('Pressed button3'),
    ),
  ],
),
