Align Icon Vertically Centered in a Row: Flutter

Issue

I am developing a bottom navigation bar which hides upon scrolling up, but I’m unable to achieve the desired result. I have 2 containers with different widgets to handle the separately. In first containers, there are 2 text widgets with a slider and second container has 5 icon buttons. I wat to reduce the space between Texts and slider and align the play_button in vertical centerzz. What I’m trying to make is this:

this is my code:

bottomNavigationBar: ValueListenableBuilder(
      valueListenable: hiding.visible,
      builder: (context, bool value, child) => AnimatedContainer(

How can i properly align icons in lesser space?

Solution

to reduce the space between text and slider you need to give a custom shape to it. So for that create a shape as show below:-

class CustomTrackShape extends RoundedRectSliderTrackShape {
  Rect getPreferredRect({
    @required RenderBox parentBox,
    Offset offset = Offset.zero,
    @required SliderThemeData sliderTheme,
    bool isEnabled = false,
    bool isDiscrete = false,
  }) {
    final double trackHeight = sliderTheme.trackHeight;
    final double trackLeft = offset.dx;
    final double trackTop = offset.dy + (parentBox.size.height - trackHeight) / 2;
    final double trackWidth = parentBox.size.width;
    return Rect.fromLTWH(trackLeft, trackTop, trackWidth, trackHeight);
  }
}

and then in your slider theme:-

SliderTheme(
                       data: SliderThemeData(
                         thumbColor: light_mode? Color(0xFF6A0080) : Colors.black,
                         activeTrackColor: light_mode?Color(0xFF6A0080) : Colors.black,
                         inactiveTrackColor: Colors.grey,
                         trackHeight: 1.0,
                         trackShape: CustomTrackShape(),//call your custom shape over here
                       ),
                       child: Slider(
                         value: 60.0,
                         max: 100.0,
                         min: 0.0,
                         onChanged: (double newValue) {
                           setState(() {
                             // sliderValue = newValue.round();
                           });
                         },
                       )),

and for proper alignment of container remove the padding from top and bottom of your container containing thos icons i.e. change padding from padding:EdgeInsets.all(8.0) to padding:EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal:8.0), becuase the size of the container is 50 and of icon is 45 and you are providing padding of 10 pixels(5 from top and 5 from bottom) this means container height should be 55. So either increase the height upto 60 or change padding code.
