FAQ

  • How do I change the height?

The height must be constant because the animation is in vertical direction. According to me 60 is perfect. But if you think needs to be reduced then please create an issue with a screenshot. I will see if I can do something.

  • How do I add drop shadow?

Wrap SlidingClippedNavBar with DecoratedBox or Container and pass BoxDecoration to decoration property. BoxDecoration takes list of boxShadow there you can pass your drop shadow.

  DecoratedBox(
      decoration: BoxDecoration(
        boxShadow: [
          BoxShadow(
              color: Colors.black.withOpacity(0.2),
              offset: Offset(0, 4),
              blurRadius: 8.0)
        ],
      ),
      child: SlidingClippedNavBar()
  )
  • How do I change the corner radius of the navigation bar?

Wrap SlidingClippedNavBar with ClipRRect and pass BorderRadius to borderRadius property.

  ClipRRect(
      borderRadius: const BorderRadius.vertical(
        top: Radius.circular(16),
      ),
      child: SlidingClippedNavBar(
    )
