SliverAppBar most importantly gives us the means to create an app-bar that can change appearance, blend in the background, or disappear as we scroll.

  7. pinned – you can use this property to SliverAppBar remain visible at the start of scroll view.

Implementation of SliverAppbar in Flutter

At first, you have the CustomScrollView widget in SliverAppBar. Then you can use the slivers property that takes a list of widgets and makes them scrollable.

Now you have to pass SliverAppBar as the first child in the sliver. The properties like snap, pinned, floating will give you different effects to your SliverAppBar.

And, In SliverAppBar, you can pass the image of your choice in the background of SliverAppbar because of the background property in FlexibleScapeBar.

In the FlexibleSpaceBar widget you can pass the title and the cover image with their respective properties.
