How to Add a Flat Button in Flutter

A Flat Button in Flutter is different from Raised Button. FlatButton widget is basically a text on the material widget which reacts to the touches. Unlike RaisedButton, Flat Button doesn’t have elevation property.

Hence, if you want a button which is not much fancy then you should choose FlatButton over RaisedButton. I have already posted how to add RaisedButton in Flutter. The following Flutter example demonstrates how to add a FlatButton in Flutter.

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';


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


class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'Welcome to Flutter',
      home: Body()
    );
  }
}

/// This is the stateless widget that the main application instantiates.
class Body extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text('Flutter Flat Button Example'),
      ),
      body: Center(
        child: FlatButton(
        color: Colors.blue,
        textColor: Colors.white,
        padding: EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
        splashColor: Colors.blueAccent,
        onPressed: () {},
  child: Text(
    "Flat Button",
    style: TextStyle(fontSize: 20.0),
  ),
)
      ),
    );
  }
}

The following is the output screenshot of the Flutter FlatButton example.
