Flutter Listtile Widget
Flutter Listtile Widget 

Flutter ListTile represents a single row that basically has one to three lines of text as title, subtitle, icons, avatar as trailing, and additional text for description.

‌Flutter ListTile Widget

Flutter ListTile contains title, subtitle, or description along with some prefix and suffix icon widget such as checkbox, radio button, images, avatar, etc. The prefix and suffix icons or any other widgets are defined through the leading and trailing parameters.

By default, Flutter ListTile can show two lines of text. The title and the subtitle. As the first line of text is not optional but the second line of text or the subtitle i.e. optional. The texture of the leading and trailing widgets can be modified according to the properties given.

So, are you ready to make use of this widget package in the Flutter application? If so, then let's quickly jump into the usage and the ways a ListTile can be modified and used to make user-friendly apps. Here I am going to use an open-source UI Library known as GetWidget to build this ListTile widget in Flutter.

GetWidget Flutter ListTile

GFListtile is a Flutter ListTile. In this widget, we can design a title, subtitle and trailing icon widgets, etc. It has customization options which is an easy way to handle it as per the application and its requirement. The GetWidget ListTile displays the list of items in a card fashion.

How to Start:

Now here is the guide about how we should start developing the GFListTile Widget with the use of the GetWidget UI Library.

Getting started will guide you on how to start building a beautiful flutter application with the GetWidget UI library. You have to install the package from pub.dev, import the package in your Flutter project.

Install Package from pub.dev :

https://pub.dev/packages/getwidget

Import full package:

import 'package:getwidget/getwidget.dart';

Note: dependencies: getwidget: ^ 2.0.4

Keep playing with the pre-built UI components.

GFListTile is a Flutter ListTile that is a material widget used to populate a ListView in an application. It basically has a title, and one to three lines of description or subtitle, and a trailing icon.

The GFListTile has many types of presenting the title, subtitle. All the types are different in one or another way. Let us now see the different types and their example code in the below sections.

GF Flutter ListTile with Label

GF Flutter ListTile with a label is nothing but a row of titles, icons, subtitles, and sometimes descriptions. The title is nothing but a label and an optional subtitle or description about the tile.

The below image shows the GFListTile with label and the code below defines a simple title with fewer lines of code.

Flutter ListTile with Text Label and Icon
import 'package:getwidget/getwidget.dart';

GFListTile(
  titleText:'GetWidget Library',
  subTitleText:'This is a open source UI library.',
  icon: Icon(Icons.favorite,color:Colors.red)
),

GF Flutter ListTile with Image:

GFListTile with Image is nothing but having an image in the tile to represent the tile, in-depth with the help of images. The images can be any kind of image(asset, network images) to make the user interface nice and clean.

If you want to learn how Flutter image can handle using GFimage Widget can check our Blog or official docs for GfWidget.

The below image shows the GFListTile with Images and the code below defines a simple title with fewer lines of code.

import 'package:getwidget/getwidget.dart';

GFListTile(
  avatar:Image.asset('your image assets here',width:60,height:60),
  titleText:'GetWidget Library',
  subTitleText:'This is a open source UI library.',
  icon: Icon(Icons.favorite,color:Colors.red)
),

GFListTile with Avatar:

GFListTile with Avatar is used to show any kind of avatar or the profile picture of the person, brand, or product. We can use our library image or Flutter avatar widgets in GFListTile. Avatar is nothing but just a background image or a profile image.

The below code shows the GFListTile with Avatar with fewer lines of code.

import 'package:getwidget/getwidget.dart';

GFListTile(
  avatar:GFAvatar(),
  titleText:'GetWidget Library',
  subTitleText:'This is a open source UI library.',
  icon: Icon(Icons.favorite,color:Colors.red)
),
