Flutter TypeWritter Text Effect – Source Code

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

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

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  const MyApp({super.key});

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      // Remove the debug banner
      debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,
      title: 'Proto Coders Point',
      theme: ThemeData(
        primarySwatch: Colors.blue,
      home: const TypeWritterText(),

class TypeWritterText extends StatefulWidget {
  const TypeWritterText({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  State<TypeWritterText> createState() => _TypeWritterTextState();

class _TypeWritterTextState extends State<TypeWritterText> {

  int _currentIndex = 0;
  int _currentCharIndex = 0;

  final List<String> _strings = [
    "Welcome to ProtoCodersPoint.com",
    "Get Programming Solution Here",
    "And more...",

  void _typeWrittingAnimation(){
     if(_currentCharIndex < _strings[_currentIndex].length){
       _currentIndex = (_currentIndex+1)% _strings.length;
       _currentCharIndex = 0;
     setState(() {


     Future.delayed(const Duration(milliseconds: 50),(){

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: const Text("Proto Coders Point"),
        body: Center(
          child: Container(
            padding: const EdgeInsets.all(20),
            width: double.infinity,
            child:  Align(
              alignment: Alignment.centerLeft,
              child: Text(
                style: TextStyle(
                    fontSize: 24,
                    fontStyle: FontStyle.italic,
                    fontWeight: FontWeight.bold),
        floatingActionButton: FloatingActionButton(
          onPressed: _typeWrittingAnimation,
          child: const Icon(Icons.play_arrow),

The logic to make text to be typed letter by letter on the screen is by using substring() method.

Here we have a function _typeWrittingAnimation, that keeps on calling itself after every milliseconds say 100 milliseconds, We have 2 integer variable _currentIndex & _currentCharIndex. The _currentCharIndex gets incremented by 1 until it is not end of the string, once the currentCharIndex reaches the end of the string,The _currentIndex is set to next List Item String in the given list.
