Introduction/Onboarding package for flutter app with some customizations possibilities

IntroductionScreen pub package #

Build Example App Run Project Tests

Introduction Screen allows you to have a screen on an app's first launch to, for example, explain your app. This widget is very customizable with a great design.

introduction_screen uses another package, dots_indicator, that I also created.

Installation #

You just need to add introduction_screen as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

dependencies:
  introduction_screen: ^3.1.14

Examples #

Not all of the many parameters in each class are used in these examples. See Parameter Lists for the complete documentation for each class.

Note: if you want to display IntroductionScreen only once, like on the first start of your app, use shared_preferences (or a similar strategy) to save the status of whether it has been already displayed or not. It's not responsibility of this package to handle this.

PageViewModel #

A list of PageViewModels is used for IntroductionScreen's pages parameter.

Simple page

This example only defines the title, body, and image parameters. (You can define image as any widget.)

PageViewModel(
  title: "Title of introduction page",
  body: "Welcome to the app! This is a description of how it works.",
  image: const Center(
    child: Icon(Icons.waving_hand, size: 50.0),
  ),
)

Page with custom colors

This example defines the color of the page using the decoration parameter. The image link does not exist and is only for example.

PageViewModel(
  title: "Title of blue page",
  body: "Welcome to the app! This is a description on a page with a blue background.",
  image: Center(
    child: Image.network("https://example.com/image.png", height: 175.0),
  ),
  decoration: const PageDecoration(
    pageColor: Colors.blue,
  ),
)

Page with custom text style

This example defines custom TextStyles in the decoration parameter for the title and body.

PageViewModel(
  title: "Title of orange text and bold page",
  body: "This is a description on a page with an orange title and bold, big body.",
  image: const Center(
    child: Text("👋", style: TextStyle(fontSize: 100.0)),
  ),
  decoration: const PageDecoration(
    titleTextStyle: TextStyle(color: Colors.orange),
    bodyTextStyle: TextStyle(fontWeight: FontWeight.w700, fontSize: 20.0),
  ),
)

This example defines a footer for the page with a button. The image does not exist and is only for example.

PageViewModel(
  title: "Title of custom button page",
  body: "This is a description on a page with a custom button below.",
  image: Image.asset("res/images/logo.png", height: 175.0),
  footer: ElevatedButton(
    onPressed: () {
      // On button pressed
    },
    child: const Text("Let's Go!"),
  ),
)

Page with widget body

This example defines the page body using bodyWidget and a Widget, rather than with body and a String. Only use body or bodyWidget. The titleWidget parameter does the same thing for the title.

PageViewModel(
  title: "Title of custom body page",
  bodyWidget: Row(
    mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
    children: const [
      Text("Click on "),
      Icon(Icons.edit),
      Text(" to edit a post"),
    ],
  ),
  image: const Center(child: Icon(Icons.android)),
)

IntroductionScreen #

The IntroductionScreen Widget is the single object that holds all pages and related navigation and settings. In these examples, listPagesViewModel is a list of pages. A page is a PageViewModel object, like the examples in the previous section.

Note:

  • If you not provide the next parameter, the "Next" button will be not displayed. The parameter showNextButton must then be set to false.
  • If you want to display the "Skip" button, you must add a skip parameter and set showSkipButton to true.
  • The done parameter is only required if showDoneButton is true.

Simple intro screen

This example only defines the pages, showNextButton, done, and onDone parameters.

IntroductionScreen(
  pages: listPagesViewModel,
  showNextButton: false,
  done: const Text("Done"),
  onDone: () {
    // On button pressed
  },
)

Intro screen with skip button

This example defines showSkipButton and skip to show the "Skip" button on all pages except the last one.

IntroductionScreen(
  pages: listPagesViewModel,
  showSkipButton: true,
  showNextButton: false,
  skip: const Text("Skip"),
  done: const Text("Done"),
  onDone: () {
    // On button pressed
  },
)

Intro screen with back button

This example defines showBackButton and back to show the "Back" button on all pages except the first one.

IntroductionScreen(
  pages: listPagesViewModel,
  showBackButton: true,
  showNextButton: false,
  back: const Icon(Icons.arrow_back),
  done: const Text("Done"),
  onDone: () {
    // On button pressed
  },
)

Intro screen with custom button text and dots indicators

This example defines dotsDecorator to show a custom implementation of the page progress dots. This example also uses a custom style for the "Done" button, bolding it.

IntroductionScreen(
  pages: listPagesViewModel,
  showSkipButton: true,
  skip: const Icon(Icons.skip_next),
  next: const Text("Next"),
  done: const Text("Done", style: TextStyle(fontWeight: FontWeight.w700)),
  onDone: () {
    // On Done button pressed
  },
  onSkip: () {
    // On Skip button pressed
  },
  dotsDecorator: DotsDecorator(
    size: const Size.square(10.0),
    activeSize: const Size(20.0, 10.0),
    activeColor: Theme.of(context).colorScheme.secondary,
    color: Colors.black26,
    spacing: const EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 3.0),
    activeShape: RoundedRectangleBorder(
        borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(25.0)
    ),
  ),
)

Intro screen with custom button style

A custom style will be applied to all buttons using the baseBtnStyle parameter ("Back", "Skip", "Next", "Done"). Specific button style parameters may also be used: backStyle, skipStyle, nextStyle, doneStyle.

If both baseBtnStyle and a specific button style are defined, the baseBtnStyle will be merge with specific style.

The following is the default button style:

TextButton.styleFrom(
  shape: RoundedRectangleBorder(
    borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(8.0),
  ),
)

This example will override the default in the following ways:

  • All buttons have a light grey background
  • The "Skip" button is red
  • The "Done" button is green
  • The "Next" button is blue
IntroductionScreen(
  pages: listPagesViewModel,
  showSkipButton: true,
  skip: const Text("Skip"),
  next: const Text("Next"),
  done: const Text("Done"),
  onDone: () {
    // When done button is press
  },
  baseBtnStyle: TextButton.styleFrom(
    backgroundColor: Colors.grey.shade200,
  ),  
  skipStyle: TextButton.styleFrom(primary: Colors.red),  
  doneStyle: TextButton.styleFrom(primary: Colors.green),  
  nextStyle: TextButton.styleFrom(primary: Colors.blue),
)

Intro screen with key param to change page manually

To change page manually / programatically, in response to user input or another event:

  1. Define a GlobalKey as part of the parent widget's state
  2. Pass that key to the IntroductionScreen key param
  3. Use the currentState member to access functions defined in IntroductionScreenState e.g.
    1. next()
    2. previous()
    3. skipToEnd()
    4. animateScroll()

This example moves to the next page after a delay:

class IntroScreenDemo extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  State<IntroScreenDemo> createState() => _IntroScreenDemoState();
}

class _IntroScreenDemoState extends State<IntroScreenDemo> {
  // 1. Define a `GlobalKey` as part of the parent widget's state
  final _introKey = GlobalKey<IntroductionScreenState>();
  String _status = 'Waiting...';

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return IntroductionScreen(
      // 2. Pass that key to the `IntroductionScreen` `key` param
      key: _introKey,
      pages: [
        PageViewModel(
            title: 'Page One',
            bodyWidget: Column(
              children: [
                Text(_status),
                ElevatedButton(
                    onPressed: () {
                      setState(() => _status = 'Going to the next page...');

                      // 3. Use the `currentState` member to access functions defined in `IntroductionScreenState`
                      Future.delayed(const Duration(seconds: 3),
                          () => _introKey.currentState?.next());
                    },
                    child: const Text('Start'))
              ],
            )),
        PageViewModel(
            title: 'Page Two', bodyWidget: const Text('That\'s all folks'))
      ],
      showNextButton: false,
      showDoneButton: false,
    );
  }
}
