flutter_xlider

(Flutter Slider) A material design slider and range slider, horizontal and vertical, with rtl support and lots of options and customizations for flutter

Version 2.4.4 and above, break functionality of older versions

Get Started

Single Slider

A single slider

FlutterSlider(
  values: [300],
  max: 500,
  min: 0,
  onDragging: (handlerIndex, lowerValue, upperValue) {
    _lowerValue = lowerValue;
    _upperValue = upperValue;
    setState(() {});
  },
)

To make slider Right To Left use rtl: true

 FlutterSlider(
  ...
  rtl: true,
  ...
)

Range Slider

A simple example of range slider

FlutterSlider(
  values: [30, 420],
  rangeSlider: true,
  max: 500,
  min: 0,
  onDragging: (handlerIndex, lowerValue, upperValue) {
    _lowerValue = lowerValue;
    _upperValue = upperValue;
    setState(() {});
  },
)

Vertical Axis

You can change the axis of your slider by setting axis to Axis.vertical. Default is horizontal

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  axis: Axis.vertical,
  ...
)

Handlers

You can customize handlers using handler and rightHandler properties.
Both handler and rightHandler accept FlutterSliderHandler class which has following properties:

  1. child: is a widget
  2. disabled: to disable the handler
  3. decoration, foregroundDecoration and transform are come from Container() widget
FlutterSlider(
  ...
  handler: FlutterSliderHandler(
    decoration: BoxDecoration(),
    child: Material(
      type: MaterialType.canvas,
      color: Colors.orange,
      elevation: 3,
      child: Container(
          padding: EdgeInsets.all(5),
          child: Icon(Icons.adjust, size: 25,)),
    ),
  ),
  rightHandler: FlutterSliderHandler(
    child: Icon(Icons.chevron_left, color: Colors.red, size: 24,),
  ),
  ...
)

Handler Scale Animation

You can control the scale animation type of your handlers, it's duration and it's scale size using handlerAnimation
handlerAnimation accepts a FlutterSliderHandlerAnimation class which has 4 properties as following

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    handlerAnimation: FlutterSliderHandlerAnimation(
      curve: Curves.elasticOut,
      reverseCurve: Curves.bounceIn,
      duration: Duration(milliseconds: 500),
      scale: 1.5
    ),
  ...
)

if you don't want scale animation, then just pass 1 to scale property
if you don't want reverseCurve, just ignore it. default is null

Trackbars

To customize track bars you can use FlutterSliderTrackBar. You can see the details here

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    trackBar: FlutterSliderTrackBar(
      activeTrackBarHeight: 5,
    ),
  ...
)

inactiveTrackBarColor and activeTrackBarColor properties are removed. use inactiveTrackBar and activeTrackBar instead.

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    trackBar: FlutterSliderTrackBar(
      inactiveTrackBar: BoxDecoration(
        borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(20),
        color: Colors.black12,
        border: Border.all(width: 3, color: Colors.blue),
      ),
      activeTrackBar: BoxDecoration(
        borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(4),
        color: Colors.blue.withOpacity(0.5)
      ),
    ),
  ...
)

Tooltips

In order to customize your tooltips, you can use FlutterSliderTooltip class. You can see all properties here

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  tooltip: FlutterSliderTooltip(
    textStyle: TextStyle(fontSize: 17, color: Colors.white),
    boxStyle: FlutterSliderTooltipBox(
      decoration: BoxDecoration(
        color: Colors.redAccent.withOpacity(0.7)
      )
    )
  ),
  ...
)

Here there is a range slider with customized handlers, trackbars and tooltips

Tooltip Prefix

You can use leftPrefix, leftSuffix, rightPrefix, rightSuffix to add your desired widget around tooltip content.

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    tooltip: FlutterSliderTooltip(
      leftPrefix: Icon(Icons.attach_money, size: 19, color: Colors.black45,),
      rightSuffix: Icon(Icons.attach_money, size: 19, color: Colors.black45,),
    ),
  ...
)

Tooltip Number Format

You can customize tooltip numbers by using NumberFormat class
here is an example

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    tooltip: FlutterSliderTooltip(
      numberFormat: intl.compact(),
      // numberFormat: intl.NumberFormat(),
    ),
  ...
)

You can find more about NumberFormat

Disable tooltip

To disable tooltips, use disabled in FlutterSliderTooltip class

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    tooltip: FlutterSliderTooltip(
      disabled: true,
    ),
  ...
)

Always Show Tooltips

Tooltips always displayed if this property is set to true.

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  tooltip: FlutterSliderTooltip(
    alwaysShowTooltip: true,
  ),
  ...
)

Controls

Handlers width and height

By default both handlers size are 35 width and height, but you can change this by handlerWidth and handlerHeight

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  handlerWidth: 30,
  handlerHeight: 30,
  ...
)

Select By Tap

You can tap on the slider to select it's value.
if slider is range-slider, then the closest handler to the selected point will move to that point

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  selectByTap: true, // default is true
  ...
)

Jump

By default slider handlers move fluently, if you set jump to true, handlers will jump between intervals

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  jump: true,
  ...
)

Step

The amount the slider changes on movement can be set using step option

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  step: 100,
  ...
)

Ignore Steps

If your configurations requires that some steps are not available, you can use ignoreSteps property.
this property accepts a simple class to define from and to ranges.

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    ignoreSteps: [
      FlutterSliderIgnoreSteps(from: 8000, to: 12000),
      FlutterSliderIgnoreSteps(from: 18000, to: 22000),
    ],
  ...
)

Minimum Distance

When using range slider, the minimum distance between two handlers can be defined using minimumDistance option

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    minimumDistance: 300,
  ...
)

Maximum Distance

This is the opposite of minimum distance, when using range slider, the maximum distance between two handlers can be defined using maximumDistance option

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    maximumDistance: 300,
  ...
)

Hatch Mark

You can display a Hatch Mark underneath or beside of your slider based on axis. In order to display hatch mark you must
use FlutterSliderHatchMark class which has following properties:

  1. distanceFromTrackBar: The distance between slider and hatch mark
  2. density: The amount of lines per percent. 1 is default. any number less or more than 1 will decrease and increase lines respectively
  3. labels: If you want to display some label or text at certain percent in your hatch mark, you can use labels
  4. labelTextStyle: The style of the label text
  5. smallLine: The widget of small lines in hatch mark
  6. bigLine: The widget of big lines in hatch mark
  7. labelBox: The widget of label box

Here is an example:

FlutterSlider(
  ...
    hatchMark: FlutterSliderHatchMark(
       distanceFromTrackBar: 10,
       density: 0.5, // means 50 lines, from 0 to 100 percent
       labels: [
         FlutterSliderHatchMarkLabel(percent: 0, label: 'Start'),
         FlutterSliderHatchMarkLabel(percent: 10, label: '10,000'),
         FlutterSliderHatchMarkLabel(percent: 50, label: '50 %'),
         FlutterSliderHatchMarkLabel(percent: 80, label: '80,000'),
         FlutterSliderHatchMarkLabel(percent: 100, label: 'Finish'),
       ],
     ),
  ...
)

Each Label(FlutterSliderHatchMarkLabel) in labels property, has it's own textStyle which overrides labelTextStyle property

You MUST define width or height for the parent container of your slider to display hatchMark properly.

Touch Size

You can control how big a handler's touch area could be. by default touch size is 25 The range is between 5 to 50

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  touchSize: 25,
  ...
)

To see the touchable area for handlers, set visibleTouchArea to true and test your slider

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  visibleTouchArea: true,
  ...
)

Disabled

to disable your slider, you can use disabled.

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  disabled: true,
  ...
)

RTL

makes the slider Right To Left

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  rtl: true,
  ...
)

Events

There are 3 events

onDragStarted: fires when drag starts
onDragCompleted fires when drag ends
onDragging keeps firing when dragging

All three of above functions returns three values.

(int handlerIndex, double lowerValue, double upperValue)

First value is handlerIndex, which determines the handler. 0 is Left Handler and 1 refers to Right Handler

FlutterSlider(
  ...
  onDragging: (handlerIndex, lowerValue, upperValue) {
    _lowerValue = lowerValue;
    _upperValue = upperValue;
    
    if(handlerIndex == 0)
        print(" Left handler ");
    
    setState(() {});
  },
  ...
)
