This package will help you to manage the overlays in your projects. Show a dialog, notification, window, or a panel easily. or use one of the helping widgets like AutoComplete, Expander(Dropdown).

To start working with overlayment you need to give to it the NavigationKey at the application start or you need to give it the context every time you want to create a new overlayment.

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    final key = GlobalKey<NavigatorState>();
    Overlayment.navigationKey = key;
    return MaterialApp(
      navigatorKey: key,

Note: if you are using qlevar_router you can use the key property of the router to set the NavigationKey.

final router = QRouterDelegate(routes);
Overlayment.navigationKey = router.key;

return MaterialApp.router(
  routeInformationParser: const QRouteInformationParser(),
  routerDelegate: router,

To show an overlay you can use Overlayment.show(OverlayType()) or OverlayType().show() . To dismiss an overlay you can use:

  • Overlayment.dismiss(OverlayType): Give the overlay object to dismiss,
  • Overlayment.dismissName(name): give the overlay name to dismiss.
  • Overlayment.dismissLast(). dismiss the last open overlay.
  • Overlayment.dismissAll(): dismiss all open overlay, if you set atSameTime to true all overlays will dismissed together, otherwise they will be dismissed in the same order they open.

All these methods can take a result parameter if you want the overlay to return some value.
