Flutter Material Banner Properties

Snippet code

ScaffoldMessenger.of(context).showMaterialBanner(
        
    MaterialBanner(
        content: const Text('This is Flutter 2.5 Material Banner'),
        leading: const Icon(Icons.info),
        backgroundColor: Colors.yellow,
        actions: [
          TextButton(onPressed: (){}, child: const Text('Some Action')),
          TextButton(onPressed: (){
            ScaffoldMessenger.of(context).hideCurrentMaterialBanner();
          }, child: const Text('Dismiss')),

Properties to customize Material Banner in flutter

propertiesusage
content:Text Message to be shown to user’s
leading:show a image logo or Icons about the banner information eg: info, warning, success…etc
backgroundColor:Gives color to Material Banner.
actions:[](mandatory) It accept array of widget when user can interact to perform some event.

The Flutter Material Banner according to it’s guidelines, The state of Banner should show only once to the user. If showMaterialBanner is called more then one time, then ScaffordMessenger will maintain a queue for next banner to be shown.

Therefore when previous banner(current active banner) is dismissed then new banner that is in queue will be shown.

removeCurrentMaterialBanner()

As you read above Scafford Messenger showMaterialBanner, maintain a queue of banner, if show MaterialBanner is called more then once, therefore we need to remove the current Material Banner which is active before invoking new Banner.

To do that we just need to call ..removeCurrentMaterialBanner() before invoking new Material Banner in flutter.

    ScaffoldMessenger.of(context)..removeCurrentMaterialBanner()..showMaterialBanner(
        MaterialBanner(
        content: const Text('This is Flutter 2.5 Material Banner'),
        leading: const Icon(Icons.info),
        backgroundColor: Colors.yellow,
        actions: [
          TextButton(onPressed: (){}, child: const Text('Some Action')),
          TextButton(onPressed: (){
            ScaffoldMessenger.of(context).hideCurrentMaterialBanner();
          }, child: const Text('Dismiss')),

        ],
      )
    );
