CupertinoSliverNavigationBar class

An iOS-styled navigation bar with iOS-11-style large titles using slivers.

The CupertinoSliverNavigationBar must be placed in a sliver group such as the CustomScrollView.

This navigation bar consists of two sections, a pinned static section on top and a sliding section containing iOS-11-style large title below it.

It should be placed at top of the screen and automatically accounts for the iOS status bar.

Minimally, a largeTitle widget will appear in the middle of the app bar when the sliver is collapsed and transfer to the area below in larger font when the sliver is expanded.

For advanced uses, an optional middle widget can be supplied to show a different widget in the middle of the navigation bar when the sliver is collapsed.

Like CupertinoNavigationBar, it also supports a leading and trailing widget on the static section on top that remains while scrolling.

The leading widget will automatically be a back chevron icon button (or a close button in case of a fullscreen dialog) to pop the current route if none is provided and automaticallyImplyLeading is true (true by default).

The largeTitle widget will automatically be a title text from the current CupertinoPageRoute if none is provided and automaticallyImplyTitle is true (true by default).

When transitionBetweenRoutes is true, this navigation bar will transition on top of the routes instead of inside them if the route being transitioned to also has a CupertinoNavigationBar or a CupertinoSliverNavigationBar with transitionBetweenRoutes set to true. If transitionBetweenRoutes is true, none of the Widget parameters can contain any GlobalKeys in their subtrees since those widgets will exist in multiple places in the tree simultaneously.

By default, only one CupertinoNavigationBar or CupertinoSliverNavigationBar should be present in each PageRoute to support the default transitions. Use transitionBetweenRoutes or heroTag to customize the transition behavior for multiple navigation bars per route.

CupertinoSliverNavigationBar by default disables text scaling to match the native iOS behavior. To override this behavior, wrap each of the CupertinoSliverNavigationBar's components inside a MediaQuery with the desired TextScaler.

The stretch parameter determines whether the nav bar should stretch to fill the over-scroll area. The nav bar can still expand and contract as the user scrolls, but it will also stretch when the user over-scrolls if the stretch value is true. Defaults to false.

This example shows CupertinoSliverNavigationBar in action inside a CustomScrollView.

alwaysShowMiddle bool
Controls whether middle widget should always be visible (even in expanded state).
automaticallyImplyLeading bool
Controls whether we should try to imply the leading widget if null.
automaticallyImplyTitle bool
Controls whether we should try to imply the largeTitle widget if null.

key Key?
Controls how one widget replaces another widget in the tree.
largeTitle Widget?
The navigation bar's title.
leading Widget?
Widget to place at the start of the navigation bar. Normally a back button for a normal page or a cancel button for full page dialogs.
middle Widget?
A widget to place in the middle of the static navigation bar instead of the largeTitle.

runtimeType Type
A representation of the runtime type of the object.
no setterinherited
stretch bool
Whether the nav bar should stretch to fill the over-scroll area.
trailing Widget?
Widget to place at the end of the navigation bar. Normally additional actions taken on the page such as a search or edit function.
