Hover Menu for Flutter #

A Flutter package for creating a hover menu for desktop and web applications, providing a common web menu experience.

Hover Menu Usage Example

Features #

  • Easy-to-use hover menu that appears when the user hovers over a specified title widget
  • Closes the menu when the user stops hovering over the menu or its items
  • Customizable

Installation #

To use this package, add hover_menu as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

dependencies:
  hover_menu: ^1.1.1

Then, run flutter packages get in your terminal.

Usage #

Import the package into your Dart file:

import 'package:hover_menu/hover_menu.dart';

Create a HoverMenu widget in your app:

HoverMenu(
  title: Text('Menu Title'),
  items: [
    ListTile(title: Text('Item 1')),
    ListTile(title: Text('Item 2')),
    ListTile(title: Text('Item 3')),
  ],
)

Optionally, you can set a custom width for the menu:

HoverMenu(
  title: Text('Menu Title'),
  items: [
    ListTile(title: Text('Item 1')),
    ListTile(title: Text('Item 2')),
    ListTile(title: Text('Item 3')),
  ],
  width: 250,
)

Example #

Here is an example of how to use the HoverMenu widget in your application:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:hover_menu/hover_menu.dart';

void main() {
  runApp(MyApp());
}

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(title: Text('Hover Menu Example')),
        body: Center(
          child: HoverMenu(
            title: InkWell(
              onTap: () {},
              child: Text('Menu Title'),
            ),
            items: [
              InkWell(
                onTap: () {
                  print('Item 1 clicked');
                },
                child: ListTile(title: Text('Item 1')),
              ),
              InkWell(
                onTap: () {
                  print('Item 2 clicked');
                },
                child: ListTile(title: Text('Item 2')),
              ),
              InkWell(
                onTap: () {
                  print('Item 3 clicked');
                },
                child: ListTile(title: Text('Item 3')),
              ),
            ],
          ),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

Example #

Using HoverMenuLastItem If we have five menu items that are horizontally aligned and need to provide dropdown options for the last menu item, the dropdown size extends beyond the screen boundaries. To address this issue, I am working on a solution where the dropdown portion aligns precisely with the end of the menu option and stretches towards the opposite side. Users can call the new class specifically for the last menu option.

As shown in the screenshot, the dropdown position for the last menu item was previously extending beyond the screen boundaries. I resolved this by adjusting the positioning exclusively for the last menu option. Last Menu Usage Example Instead of using HoverMenu class for the last menu item, use HoverMenuLastItem.

HoverMenuLastItem(
title: HoverText("Company"),
items: ...
width: 500,
),

Limitation #

  • I do not recommend using this package for mobile applications, as the standard Drawer and AppBar provide a better user experience. Consider using an 'if' condition. Something like:
bool isDesktopOrWeb() {
  if (kIsWeb) {
    return true;
  }
  if (Platform.isWindows || Platform.isMacOS || Platform.isLinux) {
    return true;
  }

  return false;
}

And in your build:

Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: isDesktopOrWeb() ? null : AppBar(title: Text('Conditional Widget Example')),
        drawer: isDesktopOrWeb() ? null : MyDrawer(),
        body: Center(
          child: Column(
            mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
            children: [
              if (isDesktopOrWeb()) HoverMenu(
                  title: Text('Menu Title'),
                  items: [
                    ListTile(title: Text('Item 1')),
                    ListTile(title: Text('Item 2')),
                    ListTile(title: Text('Item 3')),
                  ],
                ),
            ],
          ),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
