This package provides an IconPicker with supported (or custom provided) Icons which can be picked through an AlertDialog. All Icons are mapped with its names in the IconData. This is necessary to make it possible to search through the icons. Fulltextsearch including a note if no results where found.


Disclaimer (Important)

This package is maintained regularly, is stable and is used in production by many software solutions out there (Thank you all at this point 🙏).

However, it is not guaranteed that all icons are displayed correctly -> why? -> flutter framework is constantly changing codePoint's for example for Icons.camera. So if you develop an app which uses an older flutter version and flutter_iconpicker_plus version, you're good to go, but if you want to update your app and flutter version, the codePoint's could be broken and not matching to Icons.camera for example anymore!

So what can we do?:

Simply use custom icons by providing a list of IconData's to the IconPicker (with the correct codePoint's and NOT Icons.camera!)

Good: 'camera': IconData(0xe3af, fontFamily: 'MaterialIcons')

Bad: 'camera': Icons.camera

For example if you want to provide material icons, copy the actual icons from here: icons.dart and provide them to the IconPicker as custom icons.

Supported IconPacks

IconPack Supported
(includes Sharp, Rounded and Outlined)


To use this package, add flutter_iconpicker_plus as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.


If you build your app it may fail because of this package. #TreeShakeIcons

To be able to build your app, add to your build command the flag: --no-tree-shake-icons and you should be good to go!


Parameter Type Default Short description
context (only required) BuildContext - Required due to AlertDialog's base.
adaptiveDialog bool false If true, IconPicker will adapt depending on the screen size. If false, IconPicker will show itself inside an AlertDialog.
barrierDismissible bool true Defines if the user can dismiss the dialog by tapping on the outside barrier.
iconSize double 40.0 Defines the size for the all icons, that can be picked.
iconColor Color Theme.of(context).iconTheme.color Set the color for the all icons, that can be picked.
mainAxisSpacing double 5.0 How much space to place between children in a run in the main axis.
crossAxisSpacing double 5.0 How much space to place between children in a run in the cross axis.
iconPickerShape ShapeBorder RoundedRectangleBorder(borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(5.0)) The dialogs shape for the picker.
backgroundColor Color Theme.of(context).dialogBackgroundColor The color for the AlertDialog's background color.
constraints BoxConstraints If adaptiveDialog == true then it's default is: BoxConstraints(maxHeight: 500, minWidth: 450, maxWidth: 720), otherwise: BoxConstraints(maxHeight: 350, minWidth: 450, maxWidth: 678). The dialogs BoxConstraints for limiting/setting: maxHeight, maxWidth, minHeight and minWidth.
title Widget Text('Pick an icon') The title for the Picker. Sits above the SearchBar and Icons.
closeChild Widget Text('Close',textScaleFactor: 1.25,) The content for the AlertDialog's action FlatButton which closes the default dialog.
searchIcon Icon Icon(Icons.search) Sets the prefix icon in the SearchBar
searchHintText String 'Search' Sets the hintText in the TextField of SearchBar
searchClearIcon Icon Icon(Icons.close) Sets the suffix icon in the SearchBar
noResultsText String 'No results for:' The text to show when no results where found for the search term.
showTooltips bool false Shows the labels underneeth the proper icon.
showSearchBar bool true Shows the search bar above the icons if true
iconPackModes List<IconPack> const <IconPack>[IconPack.material] The modes which Icons to show.
customIconPack Map<String, IconData> null The customized icons that can be used instead.


You can select the wished IconPacks through the argument: iconPackModes. This defaults to const <IconPack>[IconPack.material]. For further usage have a look in the example.

You own Icons

If you don't want to use the default IconPacks, you can also provide your own IconPack by creating a Map<String, IconData> with the names of your icons and the specific IconData. Just pass it to customIconPack and set the iconPackMode: IconPack.custom.

Result of IconPicker and further usage (saving and retreiving)

The picker is returning (as shown in the example method _pickIcon() underneeth) an IconData which is nothing else then this class for example:

  IconData(0xe3af, fontFamily: 'MaterialIcons');    // Icons.camera

that's representing an Material icon.

So if you plan to save the picked icon anywhere (sqflite, firebase, etc.), you can use the serialization methods:

  1. Call this to convert the picked IconData to a Map:

IconData to Map

  1. You can retreive the IconData by passing the mapped IconData:

Map to IconData
