In this tutorial we will look at slide to reveal widgets or layouts in flutter.

Flutter Slidable Example

Slidable is a Flutter implementation of slidable list item with directional slide actions.

Here are it's main features:

  • Accepts start (left/top) and end (right/bottom) action panes.
  • Can be dismissed.
  • 4 built-in action panes.
  • 2 built-in slide action widgets.
  • 1 built-in dismiss animation.
  • You can easily create custom layouts and animations.
  • You can use a builder to create your slide actions if you want special effects during animation.
  • Closes when a slide action has been tapped (overridable).
  • Closes when the nearest Scrollable starts to scroll (overridable).
  • Option to disable the slide effect easily.

Here is a demo with a motion:

Step 1: Create Project

Start by creating an empty Flutter Project in your favorite editor or IDE.

Step 2: Add as a Dependency

Go to your pubspec.yaml and declare Slidable as a dependency:

dependencies:
  flutter_slidable: 1.2.0

Then sync.

Step : Write Code

Start by importing it:

import 'package:flutter_slidable/flutter_slidable.dart';

Then use it as follows:

Slidable(
  // Specify a key if the Slidable is dismissible.
  key: const ValueKey(0),

  // The start action pane is the one at the left or the top side.
  startActionPane: ActionPane(
    // A motion is a widget used to control how the pane animates.
    motion: const ScrollMotion(),

    // A pane can dismiss the Slidable.
    dismissible: DismissiblePane(onDismissed: () {}),

    // All actions are defined in the children parameter.
    children: const [
      // A SlidableAction can have an icon and/or a label.
      SlidableAction(
        onPressed: doNothing,
        backgroundColor: Color(0xFFFE4A49),
        foregroundColor: Colors.white,
        icon: Icons.delete,
        label: 'Delete',
      ),
      SlidableAction(
        onPressed: doNothing,
        backgroundColor: Color(0xFF21B7CA),
        foregroundColor: Colors.white,
        icon: Icons.share,
        label: 'Share',
      ),
    ],
  ),

  // The end action pane is the one at the right or the bottom side.
  endActionPane: const ActionPane(
    motion: ScrollMotion(),
    children: [
      SlidableAction(
        // An action can be bigger than the others.
        flex: 2,
        onPressed: doNothing,
        backgroundColor: Color(0xFF7BC043),
        foregroundColor: Colors.white,
        icon: Icons.archive,
        label: 'Archive',
      ),
      SlidableAction(
        onPressed: doNothing,
        backgroundColor: Color(0xFF0392CF),
        foregroundColor: Colors.white,
        icon: Icons.save,
        label: 'Save',
      ),
    ],
  ),

  // The child of the Slidable is what the user sees when the
  // component is not dragged.
  child: const ListTile(title: Text('Slide me')),
),

Full Example

Here is a full example:

main.dart

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

void main() => runApp(const MyApp());

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

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'Slidable Example',
      home: Scaffold(
        body: ListView(
          children: [
            Slidable(
              // Specify a key if the Slidable is dismissible.
              key: const ValueKey(0),

              // The start action pane is the one at the left or the top side.
              startActionPane: ActionPane(
                // A motion is a widget used to control how the pane animates.
                motion: const ScrollMotion(),

                // A pane can dismiss the Slidable.
                dismissible: DismissiblePane(onDismissed: () {}),
