Bottom Navigation Bar in Flutter

Updated 27 April 2023


The bottom Navigation Bar helps us to navigate from top-level views of an app. In the bottom navigation bar, we display a row of widgets, and by clicking on those widgets, we can navigate from one screen to another. Usually, we display 3 to 5 items in the bottom navigation bar. Let’s check how can we implement the bottom navigation bar in flutter.

It is really easy to implement in flutter. You can select one item at a time and navigate to the required screen and add text and labels.

Three important points to remember while using the bottom navigation bar:

  1. We can display only a small number of widgets in the bottom navigation which can be 2 to 5.
  2. It must have at least two bottom navigation items. Otherwise, we will get an error.
  3. It is required to have the icon and title properties, and we need to set relevant widgets for them.

In your scaffold add a bottom navigation bar and bottom navigation bar items.

Now show a selection of items by using two properties current index and onTap property.

Now we have to show some pages, on tap of an item.

That’s it, now we can review and run our code.


So, that’s how we implement the bottom navigation bar in Flutter.
