Usage

Add the package to your pubspec.yml file.

dependencies:
  loading_overlay: ^0.2.0

Next, import the library into your widget.

import 'package:loading_overlay/loading_overlay.dart';

Now, all you have to do is simply wrap your widget as a child of ModalProgressHUD, typically a form, together with a boolean that is maintained in local state.

...
bool _saving = false
...

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return Scaffold(
     body: LoadingOverlay(child: Container(
       Form(...)
     ), isLoading: _saving),
  );
}

Options

The current parameters are customizable in the constructor

LoadingOverlay({
    @required this.opacity,
    @required this.isLoading,
    @required this.child,
    this.progressIndicator = const CircularProgressIndicator(),
    this.color,
});

Update: See this article on Medium about async form validation

See the example application source for a complete sample app using the modal progress HUD. Included in the example is a method for using a form's validators while making async calls (see flutter/issues/9688 for details).
