Syncfusion Flutter Sliders

Syncfusion Flutter Sliders library is written natively in Dart for creating highly interactive and UI-rich slider controls for filtering purposes in Flutter applications.

Overview

This library is used to create three different types of sliders, namely slider, range slider, and range selector. All these sliders have a rich set of features such as support for both numeric and date values, tooltip, labels, and ticks. The range selector latter accepts any kind of child including Charts.

Range slider features

Range slider supports all the above-mentioned features of the slider in addition to:

  • Interval selection - Allows users to select a particular interval by tapping or clicking in it. Both thumbs will be moved to the current interval with animation.

Range selector features

Range selector supports all the above-mentioned features of the range slider in addition to:

  • Child support - Add a child of any type inside the range selector. It is also possible to add Charts. With the built-in integration, range selector is smart enough to handle features like segment selection or zooming of a chart based on the selected range in the range selector. Similar to the range slider, it also supports both numeric and date values.

  • Deferred update - Provides an option to defer range updates, allowing you to control when dependent components are updated while thumbs are being dragged continuously. range selector

Installation

Install the latest version from pub.

Slider getting started

Import the following package.

import 'package:syncfusion_flutter_sliders/sliders.dart';

Add slider to the widget tree

Add the slider widget as a child of any widget. Here, the slider widget is added as a child of the center widget.

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
        home: Scaffold(
            body: Center(
                child: SfSlider(),
              ),
          ),
      );
}

Add slider elements

Add the slider elements such as ticks, labels, and tooltip to show the current position of the slider thumb.

double _value = 40.0;

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return Scaffold(
     appBar: AppBar(
       title: const Text('Syncfusion Flutter Slider'),
     ),
     body: SfSlider(
       min: 0.0,
       max: 100.0,
       value: _value,
       interval: 20,
       showTicks: true,
       showLabels: true,
       showTooltip: true,
       minorTicksPerInterval: 1,
       onChanged: (dynamic value){
         setState(() {
           _value = value;
         });
       },
     ),
   );
}

The following screenshot illustrates the result of the above code sample.

Add range slider to the widget tree

Add the range slider widget as a child of any widget. Here, the range slider widget is added as a child of the center widget.

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
        home: Scaffold(

                child: SfRangeSlider(),
              ),
          ),
      );
}

Add range slider elements

Add the range slider elements such as ticks, labels, and tooltips to show the current position of the range slider thumb.

SfRangeValues _values = SfRangeValues(40.0, 80.0);

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
   return Scaffold(
     appBar: AppBar(
       title: const Text('Syncfusion Flutter Range Slider'),
     ),
     body: SfRangeSlider(
        min: 0.0,
        max: 100.0,
        values: _values,
        interval: 20,
        showTicks: true,
        showLabels: true,
        showTooltip: true,
        minorTicksPerInterval: 1,
        onChanged: (SfRangeValues values){
          setState(() {
            _values = values;
          });
        },
      ),
   );
}

The following screenshot illustrates the result of the above code sample.

Range selector getting started

Import the following package.

import 'package:syncfusion_flutter_sliders/sliders.dart';

Add range selector to the widget tree

Add the range selector widget as a child of any widget. Here, the range selector widget is added as a child of the center widget.

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
        home: Scaffold(
            body: Center(
                child: SfRangeSelector(),
            ),
        ),
    );
}

Add range selector elements

Add a child of any type inside the range selector. Here, the Charts widget is added as a child of the range selector.

final DateTime dateMin = DateTime(2003, 01, 01);
final DateTime dateMax = DateTime(2010, 01, 01);
final SfRangeValues dateValues = SfRangeValues(DateTime(2005, 01, 01), DateTime(2008, 01, 01));

                        primaryYAxis: NumericAxis(isVisible: false, maximum: 4),
                        series: <SplineAreaSeries<Data, DateTime>>[
                          SplineAreaSeries<Data, DateTime>(
                              dataSource: chartData,
                              xValueMapper: (Data sales, _) => sales.x,
                              yValueMapper: (Data sales, _) => sales.y)
