How to use openCloseDial property:

  1. Create a value notifier named isDialOpen:
ValueNotifier<bool> isDialOpen = ValueNotifier(false);
  1. Then set openCloseDial to isDialOpen in your SpeedDial:

  openCloseDial: isDialOpen,
  1. Now you can change the state of dial open:
isDialOpen.value = false;
