So, Let’s begin adding calender in flutter app

Step 1: Create a new Flutter Project

OffCourse, you need to open an existing flutter where you want to add calender or create a new flutter project,

Start your favorite IDE, In my case i make use of Android studio to build flutter apps.

New -> New Flutter Project -> Give a project title for example “Flutter Calender Example”.

Step 2 : Adding Dependencies

In your flutter project structure, you will file a file by name ‘pubspec.yaml’ open it, you need to add the dependencies ‘table_calender’ .

As shown in below screenshot

for the latest version of this package, kindly visit official site : https://pub.dev/packages/table_calendar/install

Step 3: Importing the calender dart file

Then now, once you have added the dependencies then you need to import the library/packge of calender where you want to use/display calender.

import 'package:table_calendar/table_calendar.dart';

Step 4: Code Process Explaination

1 : First we need to create a object for CalenderController that controls all the evven/action happening in calender & you need to initialize it in initState().

class _HomeCalendarPageState extends State<HomeCalendarPage> {
  CalendarController _controller;   //controller creation

  @override
  void initState() {
    super.initState();
    _controller = CalendarController();  //initializing it 
  }Flutt

 2 : Now you need to use calenderWidget i.e TableCalender as a child of Scafford Widget.

Scaffold(  
    body: SingleChildScrollView(  
      child: Column(  
        children: <Widget>[  
          TableCalendar()   // snippet code   // you need to customize it as per your UI // check below for full source code
        ],  
      ),  
    ),

above code is just a snipet code, you need to customize it as per you UI needs.
