Getting Started

1. Add library to your pubspec.yaml

  filter_list: ^0.0.5

2. Import library in dart file

import package:filter_list/filter_list.dart';

3. How to use FilterList

Create a list of Strings

  List<String> countList = [
  List<String> selectedCountList = [];

Create a function and call FilterListDialog.display() on button clicked

  void _openFilterDialog() async {
    await FilterListDialog.display(
      allTextList: countList,
      height: 480,
      borderRadius: 20,
      headlineText: "Select Count",
      searchFieldHintText: "Search Here",
      selectedTextList: selectedCountList,
      onApplyButtonClick: (list) {
        if (list != null) {
          setState(() {
            selectedCountList = List.from(list);

Call _openFilterDialog function on floatingActionButton pressed to display filter dialog

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: Text(widget.title),
        floatingActionButton: FloatingActionButton(
          onPressed: _openFilterDialog,
          tooltip: 'Increment',
          child: Icon(Icons.add),
        /// check for empty or null value selctedCountList
        body: selectedCountList == null || selectedCountList.length == 0
            ? Center(
                child: Text('No text selected'),
            : ListView.separated(
                itemBuilder: (context, index) {
                  return ListTile(
                    title: Text(selectedCountList[index]),
                separatorBuilder: (context, index) => Divider(),
                itemCount: selectedCountList.length));

To display filter widget use FilterListWidget and pass list of strings to it.

class FilterPage extends StatelessWidget {
  const FilterPage({Key key, this.allTextList}) : super(key: key);
  final List<String> allTextList;
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text("Filter list Page"),
      body: SafeArea(
        child: FilterListWidget(
          allTextList: allTextList,
          height: MediaQuery.of(context).size.height,
          hideheaderText: true,
          onApplyButtonClick: (list) {
            if(list != null){
              print("selected list length: ${list.length}");
