This package provides the scroll to index mechanism for fixed/variable row height for Flutter scrollable widget.

Getting Started

In the pubspec.yaml of your flutter project, add the following dependency:

  scroll_to_index: any

In your library add the following import:

import 'package:scroll_to_index/scroll_to_index.dart';

For help getting started with Flutter, view the online documentation.


This is a widget level library, means you can use this mechanism inside any Flutter scrollable widget.

Example for Flutter ListView

  scrollDirection: scrollDirection,
  controller: controller,
  children:<Widget>((data) {
  	final index = data[0];
  	final height = data[1];
    return AutoScrollTag(
      key: ValueKey(index),
      controller: controller,
      index: index,
      child: Text('index: $index, height: $height'),

you can wrap any of your row widget which has dynamic row height

  key: ValueKey(index),
  controller: controller,
  index: index,
  child: child

with the AutoScrollController controller.

when you need to trigger scroll to a specified index, you can call

controller.scrollToIndex(index, preferPosition: AutoScrollPosition.begin)

even more, with a fixed row height, you can give it a suggested height for more efficient scrolling. there are more configuration.

final controller = AutoScrollController(
  //add this for advanced viewport boundary. e.g. SafeArea
  viewportBoundaryGetter: () => Rect.fromLTRB(0, 0, 0, MediaQuery.of(context).padding.bottom),

  //choose vertical/horizontal
  axis: scrollDirection,

  //this given value will bring the scroll offset to the nearest position in fixed row height case.
  //for variable row height case, you can still set the average height, it will try to get to the relatively closer offset 
  //and then start searching.
  suggestedRowHeight: 200
