Create a reorderable listview in Flutter

Updated 20 December 2023


ReorderableListView()  is a built-in widget in the flutter that enables the user to change the order of the items placed in the ListView through a long tap and drag.

A reminder app or a task manager app would be the perfect example of this. These apps usually provide reorder or sort functionalities. As in these apps, the user needs to be able to arrange/sort items based on his/her preferences or order priority.

This is pretty easy to implement in the flutter. So, let’s check how to implement Reorderable ListView in Flutter.

Step 1: Create a flutter project.

Step 2: First, we will create a list that has data. So, we will create a list of strings and names as tasks.

Step 3: Add the ReorderableListView() widget and add the key in the children of the ReorderableListView widget. The key is expected to distinguish the items after their position is changed.

Step 4: Add the reorder function. It is a callback function used by the list to report that a list item has been dragged to a new location in the list and the application should update the order of the items.

Now run your code and check by long-tapping on an item and dragging it to a new position.


So, this is how we implement reorderable listview in Flutter.
