A flexible multi select package for Flutter. Make multi select widgets the way you want.

Multi Select Flutter #

Pub Version

Multi Select Flutter is a package for creating multi-select widgets in a variety of ways.


Dialog

BottomSheet

ChoiceChip

Features #

  • Supports FormField features like validator.
  • Neutral default design.
  • Dialog, BottomSheet, or ChoiceChip style widgets.
  • Make your multi select searchable for larger lists.

Usage #

MultiSelectDialogField / MultiSelectBottomSheetField #

These widgets provide an InkWell button which open the dialog or bottom sheet and are equipped with FormField features. You can customize it using the provided parameters.

To store the selected values, you can use the onConfirm parameter. You could also use onSelectionChanged for this.

By default these widgets render a MultiSelectChipDisplay below the field. This can be overridden with the chipDisplay parameter or removed completely by using chipDisplay: MultiSelectChipDisplay.none().

MultiSelectDialogField(
  items: _animals.map((e) => MultiSelectItem(e, e.name)).toList(),
  listType: MultiSelectListType.CHIP,
  onConfirm: (values) {
    _selectedAnimals = values;
  },
),

MultiSelectDialog / MultiSelectBottomSheet #

           

If you prefer to create your own button for opening the dialog or bottom sheet, you may do so and then make a call to a function like this:

MultiSelectDialog can be used in the builder of showDialog().

void _showMultiSelect(BuildContext context) async {
  await showDialog(
    context: context,
    builder: (ctx) {
      return  MultiSelectDialog(
        items: _items,
        initialValue: _selectedAnimals,
        onConfirm: (values) {...},
      );
    },
  );
}

MultiSelectBottomSheet can be used in the builder of showModalBottomSheet().

void _showMultiSelect(BuildContext context) async {
  await showModalBottomSheet(
    isScrollControlled: true, // required for min/max child size
    context: context,
    builder: (ctx) {
      return  MultiSelectBottomSheet(
        items: _items,
        initialValue: _selectedAnimals,
        onConfirm: (values) {...},
        maxChildSize: 0.8,
      );
    },
  );
}

MultiSelectChipDisplay #

To display the selected items, this widget can be used alongside your own button or it can be specified as a chipDisplay parameter of widgets like MultiSelectDialogField.

You can also remove items from the source list in the onTap function.

MultiSelectChipDisplay(
  items: _selectedAnimals.map((e) => MultiSelectItem(e, e)).toList(),
  onTap: (value) {
    setState(() {
      _selectedAnimals.remove(value);
    });
  },
),

A MultiSelectChipDisplay that is part of a MultiSelectDialogField still renders outside the BoxDecoration of the MultiSelectDialogField as seen here:

chipDisplay

If you want to encapsulate the MultiSelectChipDisplay, wrap the MultiSelectDialogField in a Container and apply the decoration to that instead:

Container(
  decoration: BoxDecoration(...),
  child: MultiSelectDialogField(
    items: _items,
    chipDisplay: MultiSelectChipDisplay(...),
  ),
),
chipDisplay

MultiSelectChipField #

chipField

This widget is similar to MultiSelectChipDisplay, except these chips are the primary interface for selecting items.

MultiSelectChipField<Animal>(
  items: _items,
  icon: Icon(Icons.check),
  onTap: (values) {
    _selectedAnimals = values;
  },
),

Using itemBuilder to create custom items:

MultiSelectChipField<Animal>(
  items: _items,
  key: _multiSelectKey,
  validator: (values) {...}
  itemBuilder: (item, state) {
    // return your custom widget here
    return InkWell(
      onTap: () {
        _selectedAnimals.contains(item.value)
			      ? _selectedAnimals.remove(item.value)
			      : _selectedAnimals.add(item.value);
	      state.didChange(_selectedAnimals);
	      _multiSelectKey.currentState.validate();
	    },
	    child: Text(item.value.name),
    );
  },
),

The itemBuilder param takes a function that will create a widget for each of the provided items.

In order to use validator and other FormField features with custom widgets, you must call state.didChange(_updatedList) any time the list of selected items is updated.

Using scrollControl to auto scroll:

MultiSelectChipField(
  items: _items,
  scrollControl: (controller) {
    _startAnimation(controller);
  },
)

// waits 5 seconds, scrolls to end slow, then back fast
void _startAnimation(ScrollController controller) {
  // when using more than one animation, use async/await
  Future.delayed(const Duration(milliseconds: 5000), () async {
    await controller.animateTo(
      controller.position.maxScrollExtent,
      duration: Duration(milliseconds: 8000), 
      curve: Curves.linear);
      
    await controller.animateTo(
      controller.position.minScrollExtent,
      duration: Duration(milliseconds: 1250),
      curve: Curves.fastLinearToSlowEaseIn);
  });
}
