Alert Dialog box informs the user about the situation that requires acknowledgment. Alert Box is a prompt that takes user confirmation. The very basic use of the alert box is used when we close the app, usually, we are notified with a prompt whether we want to exit or not. That’s an alert box.

The below-added code shows how to perform alert Dialog box in a flutter. I have used a button (Raised Button in flutter ) to trigger the alert dialog box. In its on the pressed property, we have to use the showDialog widget of flutter. It takes context and a builder. In builder, we provide the AlertDialog widget with title, content(Description of a title), and actions (Yes or no buttons), and our alert dialog box is ready to use.

Key Properties of Alter Dialog Box:

  • actions: The set of actions that are displayed at the bottom of the dialog
  • title: The title of the dialog is displayed in a large font at the top of the dialog.
  • content: This gives a message/ description about the title which you have provided to the Alert Dialog box.
  • backgroundColor: It provides the background color to the widget which is being used in.
  • elevation: Elevation provided height to the widget, It gives a default shadow to the widget.

Flutter provides its own show Dialog widget which is used to show Dialog box.

void main() => runApp(const MyApp());
class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  const MyApp({Key? key}) : super(key: key);
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return const MaterialApp(
      home: HomePage(),
class HomePage extends StatefulWidget {
  const HomePage({Key? key}) : super(key: key);
  // ignore: library_private_types_in_public_api
  _HomePageState createState() => _HomePageState();
class _HomePageState extends State<HomePage> {
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
