Preview #


Getting started #

  1. Add the latest version of package to your pubspec.yaml (and run flutter pub get):
dependencies:
  animated_custom_dropdown: 3.0.0
  1. Import the package and use it in your Flutter App.
import 'package:animated_custom_dropdown/custom_dropdown.dart';

Example usage #

1. Custom dropdown #

import 'package:animated_custom_dropdown/custom_dropdown.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:developer';

const List<String> _list = [
    'Developer',
    'Designer',
    'Consultant',
    'Student',
  ];

class SimpleDropdown extends StatelessWidget {
  const SimpleDropdown({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return CustomDropdown<String>(
      hintText: 'Select job role',
      items: _list,
      initialItem: _list[0],
      onChanged: (value) {
        log('changing value to: $value');
      },
    );
  }
}

2. Custom dropdown with custom type model #

Let's start with the type of object we are going to work with:

class Job {
  final String name;
  final IconData icon;
  const Job(this.name, this.icon);

  @override
  String toString() {
    return name;
  }
}

Whenever you are going to work with custom type model T, your model must override the default toString() method and return the property inside that you want to display as list item otherwise the dropdown list item would show Instance of [model name].

Now the widget:

import 'package:animated_custom_dropdown/custom_dropdown.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:developer';

const List<Job> _list = [
    Job('Developer', Icons.developer_mode),
    Job('Designer', Icons.design_services),
    Job('Consultant', Icons.account_balance),
    Job('Student', Icons.school),
  ];

class SimpleDropdown extends StatelessWidget {
  const SimpleDropdown({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return CustomDropdown<Job>(
      hintText: 'Select job role',
      items: _list,
      onChanged: (value) {
        log('changing value to: $value');
      },
    );
  }
}

3. Custom dropdown with multiple selection #

import 'package:animated_custom_dropdown/custom_dropdown.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:developer';

const List<Job> _list = [
    Job('Developer', Icons.developer_mode),
    Job('Designer', Icons.design_services),
    Job('Consultant', Icons.account_balance),
    Job('Student', Icons.school),
  ];

class MultiSelectDropDown extends StatelessWidget {
  const MultiSelectDropDown({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return CustomDropdown<Job>.multiSelect(
        items: _jobItems,
        initialItems: _jobItems.take(1).toList(),
        onListChanged: (value) {
          log('changing value to: $value');
        },
      );
  }
}

4. Custom dropdown with search: A custom dropdown with the possibility to filter the items. #

First, let's enhance our Job model with more functionality:

class Job with CustomDropdownListFilter {
  final String name;
  final IconData icon;
  const Job(this.name, this.icon);

  @override
  String toString() {
    return name;
  }

  @override
  bool filter(String query) {
    return name.toLowerCase().contains(query.toLowerCase());
  }
}

If the filter on the object is more complex, you can add the CustomDropdownListFilter mixin to it, which gives you access to the filter(query) method, and by this the items of the list will be filtered.

Now the widgets:

SearchDropdown

import 'package:animated_custom_dropdown/custom_dropdown.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:developer';

const List<Job> _list = [
    Job('Developer', Icons.developer_mode),
    Job('Designer', Icons.design_services),
    Job('Consultant', Icons.account_balance),
    Job('Student', Icons.school),
  ];

class SearchDropdown extends StatelessWidget {
  const SearchDropdown({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return CustomDropdown<Job>.search(
      hintText: 'Select job role',
      items: _list,
      excludeSelected: false,
      onChanged: (value) {
        log('changing value to: $value');
      },
    );
  }
}

MultiSelectSearchDropdown

import 'package:animated_custom_dropdown/custom_dropdown.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:developer';

const List<Job> _list = [
    Job('Developer', Icons.developer_mode),
    Job('Designer', Icons.design_services),
    Job('Consultant', Icons.account_balance),
    Job('Student', Icons.school),
  ];

class MultiSelectSearchDropdown extends StatelessWidget {
  const SearchDropdown({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return CustomDropdown<Job>.multiSelectSearch(
      hintText: 'Select job role',
      items: _list,
      onListChanged: (value) {
        log('changing value to: $value');
      },
    );
  }
}

5. Custom dropdown with search request: A custom dropdown with a search request to load the items. #

Let's use a personalized object for the items:

class Pair {
  final String text;
  final IconData icon;
  const Pair(this.text, this.icon);

  @override
  String toString() {
    return text;
  }
}

Now the widgets:

SearchRequestDropdown

import 'package:animated_custom_dropdown/custom_dropdown.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:developer';

const List<Pair> _list = [
    Pair('Developer', Icons.developer_board),
    Pair('Designer', Icons.deblur_sharp),
    Pair('Consultant', Icons.money_off),
    Pair('Student', Icons.edit),
  ];

class SearchRequestDropdown extends StatelessWidget {
  const SearchRequestDropdown({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  // This should be a call to the api or service or similar
  Future<List<Pair>> _getFakeRequestData(String query) async {
    return await Future.delayed(const Duration(seconds: 1), () {
      return _list.where((e) {
        return e.text.toLowerCase().contains(query.toLowerCase());
      }).toList();
    });
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return CustomDropdown<Pair>.searchRequest(
      futureRequest: _getFakeRequestData,
      hintText: 'Search job role',
      items: _list,
      onChanged: (value) {
        log('changing value to: $value');
      },
    );
  }
}

MultiSelectSearchRequestDropdown

import 'package:animated_custom_dropdown/custom_dropdown.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:developer';

const List<Pair> _list = [
    Pair('Developer', Icons.developer_board),
    Pair('Designer', Icons.deblur_sharp),
    Pair('Consultant', Icons.money_off),
    Pair('Student', Icons.edit),
  ];

class MultiSelectSearchRequestDropdown extends StatelessWidget {
  const MultiSelectSearchRequestDropdown({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  // This should be a call to the api or service or similar
  Future<List<Pair>> _getFakeRequestData(String query) async {
    return await Future.delayed(const Duration(seconds: 1), () {
      return _list.where((e) {
        return e.text.toLowerCase().contains(query.toLowerCase());
      }).toList();
    });
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return CustomDropdown<Pair>.multiSelectSearchRequest(
      futureRequest: _getFakeRequestData,
      hintText: 'Search job role',
      onListChanged: (value) {
        log('changing value to: $value');
      },
    );
  }
}

const List<String> _list = [

    'Designer',
    'Consultant',
    'Student',
  ];

class ValidationDropdown extends StatelessWidget {
  ValidationDropdown({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  final _formKey = GlobalKey<FormState>();

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Form(
      key: _formKey,
      child: Column(
        crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.start,
        children: [
          CustomDropdown<String>(

            items: _list,
            onChanged: (value) {
              log('changing value to: $value');
            },
            // Run validation on item selected
            validateOnChange: true,
            // Function to validate if the current selected item is valid or not
            validator: (value) => value == null ? "Must not be null" : null,
          ),
          const SizedBox(height: 16),
          SizedBox(
            width: double.infinity,
            child: ElevatedButton(
              onPressed: () {
                if (!_formKey.currentState!.validate()) return;
              },
              child: const Text(
                'Submit',
                style: TextStyle(fontWeight: FontWeight.w600),
