Methods #

toMap #

Returns a [Map] with all the fields and their values

Parameters

[ignoreEmpty] - if true, will ignore empty fields - default: false

[emptyValue] - value to be used if [ignoreEmpty] is false and the field is empty - default: false

[ignoreEmpty] and [emptyValue] if active together, only [ignoreEmpty] will be considere

Example

// Declare a form
AdvancedFormGenerator formGenerator = AdvancedFormGenerator(inputs: [
      FormFieldItem(
        label: 'E-mail',
        required: true,
        mapKey: 'email',
      ),FormFieldItem(
        label: 'Senha',
        mapKey: 'password',
      ),
]);

// Returns a map with the form's properties and values
**formGenerator.toMap();**

// Example
/*
{
	'email': '',
	'password: ''
}
*/

render

Returns a [List] with all the widgets to render

Example

// Declare a form
AdvancedFormGenerator formGenerator = AdvancedFormGenerator(inputs: [
      FormFieldItem(
        label: 'E-mail',
        required: true,
        mapKey: 'email',
      ),FormFieldItem(
        label: 'Senha',
        mapKey: 'password',
      ),
]);

...

// Inside widgets
...
Column(
        children: formGenerator.render(),
      ),
...
// or
...
Column(
	children: [
		Text('Example'),
		...formGenerator.render(),
	]
),
...

reset #

Resets all the [TextEditingController]s inside [FormFieldItem]s and [IFormFieldItem]s to empty

Example

AdvancedFormGenerator form = AdvancedFormGenerator(inputs: [
      FormFieldItem(
        label: 'E-mail',
        required: true,
        mapKey: 'email',
        initialValue: 'test@email.com'
      ),FormFieldItem(
        label: 'Senha',
        mapKey: 'password',
      ),
     ]);

// before reset
Map values = form.toMap();
// {'email': 'test@email.com', password: ''}

// after reset
form.reset();
values = form.toMap();
// {'email': '', password: ''}

getValue #

Return a value from the input field with the [key], if the key does not exist, null will be returned.

Parameters

[key] - required, is the same as the mapKey property, passing the key you can get the individual value of a text field.

Example

AdvancedFormGenerator form = AdvancedFormGenerator(inputs: [
      FormFieldItem(
        label: 'E-mail',
        required: true,
        mapKey: 'email',
        initialValue: 'test@email.com'
      ),FormFieldItem(
        label: 'Senha',
        mapKey: 'password',
      ),
     ]);

String? email = form.getValue('email');
// email = 'test@email.com'
String? password = form.getValue('password');
// password = ''
String? other = form.getValue('other');
// other = null

setValue #

Sets a value to the text input if the key passed is valid.

Parameters

[key] - required, is the same as the mapKey property, passing the key you can get the individual value of a text field.

[value] - required, is a string field and will be the new value of the text inputis.

Example

AdvancedFormGenerator form = AdvancedFormGenerator(inputs: [
      FormFieldItem(
        label: 'E-mail',
        required: true,
        mapKey: 'email',
        initialValue: 'test@email.com'
      ),FormFieldItem(
        label: 'Senha',
        mapKey: 'password',
      ),
     ]);

String? email = form.getValue('email');
// email = 'test@email.com'
form.setValue('email', 'email@email.com');
email = form.getValue('email');
// email = 'email@email.com'

How to create a custom FormFieldItem widget #

import 'package:advanced_form_generator/widgets/IFormFieldItem.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

class CustomText extends StatelessWidget implements IFormFieldItem {
  @override
  TextEditingController? controller;

  @override
  String? initialValue;
  @override
  String mapKey;

  @override
  InputDecoration? decoration;

  @override
  String label;

  CustomText({
    Key? key,
    this.controller,
    this.initialValue,
    this.hint,
    required this.label,
    required this.mapKey,
  }) : super(key: key);

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return TextFormField(
      controller: controller,
      decoration: decoration,
      style: TextStyle(fontSize: 18, color: Colors.grey[900]),
    );
  }

  @override
  String? hint;
}

How to change the style of [FormFieldItem]? #

You can do it individually, like this

FormFieldItem(
        label: 'E-mail',
        required: true,
        mapKey: 'email',
        decoration: InputDecoration(
            labelText: 'Email',
            labelStyle: TextStyle(fontSize: 18, color: Colors.grey[900]),
            border: OutlineInputBorder(
              borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(10),
            ),
          ),
      )

or for all

AdvancedFormGenerator formGenerator = AdvancedFormGenerator(inputs: [
      FormFieldItem(
        label: 'E-mail',
        required: true,
        mapKey: 'email',
      ),FormFieldItem(
        label: 'Senha',
        mapKey: 'password',
      ),
     ],
decoration: InputDecoration(
            labelText: 'Email',
            labelStyle: TextStyle(fontSize: 18, color: Colors.grey[900]),
            border: OutlineInputBorder(
              borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(10),
            ),
      ),
);

Notes #

Do not place the [FormFieldItem] and [IFormFieldItem] inside any other Widget, or it will not be recognized as a text field.

If you are not using reactive state management, you may need to do a hot reload for changes made to the form code to take effect.

You can change the margin between [FormField Item] by passing the 'margin' parameter in the form's constructor.
