An alert dialog informs the user of events that require their attention. A title and a list of actions are both optional in an alert dialog. The headline appears above the material, while the actions appear below the content. And Suppose the content is too large to fit vertically on the screen. In that case, the dialogue will show the title and actions before allowing the content to overflow, which is rarely desirable. Now let's see the implementation of Flutter AlertDialog in detail


const AlertDialog(
{Key? key,
Widget? title,
EdgeInsetsGeometry? titlePadding,
TextStyle? titleTextStyle,
Widget? content,
EdgeInsetsGeometry contentPadding = const EdgeInsets.fromLTRB(24.0, 20.0, 24.0, 24.0),
TextStyle? contentTextStyle,
List<Widget>? actions,
EdgeInsetsGeometry actionsPadding =,
MainAxisAlignment? actionsAlignment,
OverflowBarAlignment? actionsOverflowAlignment,
VerticalDirection? actionsOverflowDirection,
double? actionsOverflowButtonSpacing,
EdgeInsetsGeometry? buttonPadding,
Color? backgroundColor,
double? elevation,
String? semanticLabel,
EdgeInsets insetPadding = _defaultInsetPadding,
Clip clipBehavior = Clip.none,
ShapeBorder? shape,
AlignmentGeometry? alignment,
bool scrollable = false}

Properties of Alter Dialog Box

  • actions → List<Widget>?
    This property is a set of actions that are displayed at the bottom of the dialog.
  • actionsAlignment → MainAxisAlignment?
    It Defines the horizontal layout of the actions according to the same rules as for Row.mainAxisAlignment.
  • actionsOverflowAlignment → OverflowBarAlignment?
    This property sets the horizontal alignment of actions within the vertical "overflow" layout.
  • actionsOverflowButtonSpacing → double?
    This property sets the spacing between actions when the OverflowBar switches to a column layout because the steps don't fit horizontally.
  • shape → ShapeBorder?
    This property is used to define and alter the shape of this dialog's border.
  • title → Widget?
    This property of the dialog is displayed in a large font at the top of the dialog.
  • backgroundColor → Color?
    This property is used to define the background color of the widget which is being used in.


Flutter has its own show Dialog widget for displaying dialogue boxes.lets see the code of Flutter AlertDialog.



import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

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

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  const MyApp({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  static const String _title = 'Coding Ninjas';
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: _title,
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: const Text(_title),
        body: const Center(
          child: MyStatelessWidget(),

class MyStatelessWidget extends StatelessWidget {
const MyStatelessWidget({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return TextButton(
      onPressed: () => showDialog<String>(
        context: context,
        builder: (BuildContext context) => AlertDialog(
          title: const Text('AlertDialog Title'),
          content: const Text('AlertDialog description'),
          actions: <Widget>[
              onPressed: () => Navigator.pop(context, 'Cancel'),
              child: const Text('Cancel'),
              onPressed: () => Navigator.pop(context, 'OK'),
              child: const Text('OK'),
      child: const Text('Show Dialog'),
