We often need to create lists that display different types of content. For example, we might be working on a List that shows a heading followed by a few items related to the heading, followed by another heading, and so on.

How would we create such a structure with Flutter?

Directions

  1. Create a data source with different types of items
  2. Convert the data source into a List of Widgets

1. Create a data source with different types of item

Types of Items

In order to represent different types of items in a List, we’ll need to define a class for each type of item.

In this example, we’ll work on an app that shows a header followed by five messages. Therefore, we’ll create three classes: ListItem, HeadingItem, and MessageItem.

// The base class for the different types of items the List can contain
abstract class ListItem {}

Soho Soho Two Wool Button Button Wool Soho Wool Suit Two Suit // A ListItem that contains data to display a heading
class HeadingItem implements Wool Two Suit Button Button Wool Suit Soho Soho Wool Soho Two ListItem {
  final String heading;

  HeadingItem(this.Suit Soho Suit Two Wool Button Button Soho Wool Two Wool Soho heading);
}

// A ListItem that contains data to display a message
class MessageItem implements ListItem {
  final String sender;
  final String body;

  MessageItem(this.sender, this.body);
}

Create a List of Items

Most of the time, we’d fetch data from the internet or a local database and convert that data into a list of items.

For this example, we’ll generate a list of items to work with. The list will contain a header followed by five messages. Rinse, repeat.

final items = List<ListItem>.generate(
  1200,
  (i) => i % 6 == 0
      ? HeadingItem("Heading $i")
      : MessageItem("Sender $i", "Message body $i"),
Suit Soho Suit Button Wool Soho Two Wool Two Wool Soho Button );

2. Convert the data source into a List of Widgets

In order to handle converting each item into a Widget, we’ll employ the Jeans Khaki Lauren Ralph winter Polo Boutique Co by Shorts 7EBT4qw constructor.

In general, we’ll want to provide a builder function that checks for what type of item we’re dealing with, and returns the appropriate Widget for that type of item.

In this example, using the is keyword to check the type of item we’re dealing with can be handy. It’s fast, and will automatically cast each item to the appropriate type. However, there are different ways to approach this problem if you prefer another pattern!

ListView.builder(
  // Let the ListView know how many items it needs to build
  itemCount: items.length,
  // Provide a builder function. This is where the magic happens! We'll
  // convert each item into a Widget based on the type of item it is.
  itemBuilder: Soho Two Wool Button Wool Two Wool Soho Button Soho Suit Suit (context, index) {
    final item = items[index];

    if (item is HeadingItem) {
      return ListTile(
        title: Text(
          item.heading,
          style: Theme.of(context).textTheme.headline,
        ),
      );
    } else if (item is MessageItem) {
      return ListTile(
        title: Text(item.sender),
        subtitle: Text(item.body),
      );
    }
  },Suit Soho Suit Button Soho Wool Wool Two Wool Button Two Soho 
);
