    listItems: [
       ShapedItemObject(iconData: Icons.settings, title: "Settings"),
       ShapedItemObject(iconData: Icons.account_balance_outlined, title: "Account"),
       ShapedItemObject(iconData: Icons.verified_user_rounded, title: "User"),
       ShapedItemObject(iconData: Icons.login, title: "Logout"),
      ],
   onItemChanged: (position) {
     setState(() {
        this.selectedItem = position;
     });
  },
  selectedIconColor: Colors.white
)

	iconsColor:  Colors.white,
	listItems: [
		ShapedItemObject(iconData:  Icons.settings, title:  "Settings"),

	],
	onItemChanged: (position) {
		setState(() {

		});
	},
	shapeColor:  Colors.pink,
	selectedIconColor:  Colors.white,
	shape:  ShapeType.HEXAGONE
)

ShapedBottomBar(

	iconsColor:  Color(0xFF020750),
	listItems: [
		ShapedItemObject(iconData:  Icons.settings, title:  "Settings"),

		ShapedItemObject(iconData:  Icons.verified_user_rounded, title:  "User"),
		ShapedItemObject(iconData:  Icons.login, title:  "Logout"),
	],
	onItemChanged: (position) {
		setState(() {
		this.selectedItem = position;
		});
	},
	textStyle:  TextStyle(color:  Colors.black, fontSize:  15),
