Getting started #

In the pubspec.yaml of your flutter project, add the following dependency:

  editable: "^1.1.4"

In your library add the following import:

import 'package:editable/editable.dart';


Create Table #

To create a new table, use the Editable() widget class and provide the table data properties as follows:

  • column: an array of objects example example:

       List cols = [
         {"title":'Name', 'widthFactor': 0.2, 'key':'name'},
         {"title":'Date', 'widthFactor': 0.1, 'key':'date'},
         {"title":'Month', 'widthFactor': 0.1, 'key':'month'},
         {"title":'Status',  'key':'status'},

    [title] is the column heading

    [widthFactor] a custom size ratio of each column width, if not provided, defaults to [columnRatio = 0.20] dart 'widthFactor': 0.1 //gives 10% of screen size to the column 'widthFactor': 0.2 //gives 20% of screen size to the column

    [key] an identifyer preferably without space and special characters

  • rows: an array of objects, where each object key represents a column [key], example:

      List rows = [
          {"name": 'James Joe', "date":'23/09/2020',"month":'June',"status":'completed'},
          {"date":'12/4/2020',"month":'March',"name": 'Daniel Paul', "status":'new'},

    Each objects DO NOT have to be positioned in same order as its column

  • rowCount: Interger value of number of rows to be generated: Optional if row data is provided

  • columnCount: Interger value of number of columns to be generated: Optional if column data is provided

  • columnRatio: fraction of the screen width occupied by each column. This is usefull for shrinking and expanding table width example:

      columnRation: 0.2 //sets each column to occupy 20 percent of screen width

Customization #

  • borderColor: Color of table border

  • borderWidth: width of table borders

  • tdPaddingLeft: Table data cell padding left

  • tdPaddingTop: Table data cell padding top

  • tdPaddingRight: Table data cell padding right;

  • tdPaddingBottom: Table data cell padding bottom;

  • tdAlignment: Aligns the table data ;

  • tdStyle: Style the table data;

  • thPaddingLeft: Table header cell padding left;

  • thPaddingTop: Table header cell padding top;

  • thPaddingRight: Table header cell padding right;

  • thPaddingBottom: Table header cell padding bottom;

  • trHeight: Table Row Height, cannot be less than 40.0 ;

  • thWeight: Table headers fontweight;

  • thSize: Table headers fontSize;

  • tdEditableMaxLines : Max lines allowed in editable text, default: 1 (longer data will not wrap and be hidden), setting to 100 will allow wrapping and not increase row size;

  • showSaveIcon: Toogles the save button, if [true] displays an icon to save rows, adds an addition column to the right

  • saveIcon: Icon for to save row data, example: dart saveIcon : Icons.add

  • saveIconColor: Color for the save Icon

  • saveIconSize: Size for the saveIcon

  • showCreateButton: displays a button that adds a new row onPressed

  • stripeColor1: The first row alternate color, if stripe is set to true

  • stripeColor2: The Second row alternate color, if stripe is set to true;

  • zebraStripe: Enable zebra-striping, set to false by default // if zebraStripe is enabled, you can style the colors [stripeColor1] and [stripeColor2]

  • createButtonAlign: Aligns the button for adding new rows;

  • createButtonIcon: Icon displayed in the create new row button;

  • createButtonColor: Color for the create new row button;

  • createButtonShape: border shape of the create new row button createButtonShape: RoundedRectangleBorder( borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(8) )

  • createButtonLabel: Label for the create new row button

Save methods #

  • onSubmitted: [onSubmitted] callback is triggered when the enter button is tapped (for desktop users) Or when edit is complete(on mobile) on a table data cell it returns a value of the edited cell data

  • onRowSaved: [onRowSaved] callback is triggered when a [saveButton] is pressed. returns only values if row is edited, otherwise returns a string ['no edit']

  • EditableState key: To get all Edited Rows outside the current context, you can access the editable state using a GlobalKey, example:

         /// Create a Key for EditableState
        final _editableKey = GlobalKey<EditableState>(); 
  /// Function to add a new row
  /// Using the global key assigined to Editable widget
  /// Access the current state of Editable
  void _addNewRow() {
    setState(() {

  ///Print only edited rows.
  void _printEditedRows() {
    List editedRows = _editableKey.currentState.editedRows;

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        leadingWidth: 200,
        leading: FlatButton.icon(
            onPressed: () => _addNewRow(),
            icon: Icon(Icons.add),
            label: Text(
              style: TextStyle(fontWeight: FontWeight.bold),
        title: Text(widget.title),
        actions: [
            padding: const EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
            child: FlatButton(
                onPressed: () => _printEditedRows(),
                child: Text('Print Edited Rows',
                    style: TextStyle(fontWeight: FontWeight.bold))),
      body: Editable(
        key: _editableKey, //Assign Key to Widget
        columns: cols,
        rows: rows,
        zebraStripe: true,
        stripeColor2: Colors.grey[200],
        borderColor: Colors.blueGrey,
