Align Widget in Flutter
  • Last Updated : 03 Jun, 2021

Align Widget is the widget that is used to align its child within itself and optionally sizes itself based on the child’s size. Align Widget is quite flexible and can change its size according to the size of its child.

Constructor of Align class:

Syntax:
Align({Key key, 
AlignmentGeometry alignment: Alignment.center,
double widthFactor, 
double heightFactor, 
Widget child})

Properties of Align Widget:

  • alignment:  It sets the alignment.
  • child:  The child widget in the tree.
  • hashCode: The hashcode for the object.
  • heightFactor: It sets its height to the child’s height multiplied by this heightFactor.
  • key: It is used to controlling how one widget replaces the other one.
  • runtimeType: It is a representation of runtime type.
  • widthFactor: It sets its width to the child’s width multiplied by this widthFactor.

Example 1: Aligning the text at the center of the container.

The main.dart file:



Dart




import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
 
void main() => runApp(MyApp());
 
class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'TextSpan',
      theme: ThemeData(
        primarySwatch: Colors.green,
      ),
      home: MyHomePage(),
      debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,
    );
  }
}
 
class MyHomePage extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyHomePageState createState() => _MyHomePageState();
}
 
class _MyHomePageState extends State<MyHomePage> {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
            title: Text('GeeksforGeeks Align Widget'),
            backgroundColor: Colors.green),
        body: Center(
            child: Container(
          height: 120.0,
          width: 120.0,
          color: Colors.blue[50],
          child: Align(
            alignment: Alignment.center,
            child: Text(
              "Geeky Text",
              style: TextStyle(fontSize: 20, fontWeight: FontWeight.bold),
            ),
          ),
        )));
  }
}

Output:

align center

Example 2: Aligning the Image at the top right of the container.

The main.dart file:

Dart




import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
 
void main() => runApp(MyApp());
 
class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'TextSpan',
      theme: ThemeData(
        primarySwatch: Colors.green,
      ),
      home: MyHomePage(),
      debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,
    );
  }
}
 
class MyHomePage extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyHomePageState createState() => _MyHomePageState();
}
 
class _MyHomePageState extends State<MyHomePage> {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
            title: Text('GeeksforGeeks Align Widget'),
            backgroundColor: Colors.green),
        body: Center(
