Changing The Text Color Of Cupertino Date Picker


Attached below is my current code for changing the text color of CupertinoDatePicker:

                    BoxDecoration(borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(12)),
                height: MediaQuery.of(context).size.height * 0.18,
                child: CupertinoTheme(
                  data: CupertinoThemeData(
                    textTheme: CupertinoTextThemeData(
                        pickerTextStyle: TextStyle(
                      color: Color(0xffB59CCF),
                  child: CupertinoDatePicker(

However, the color hasn’t changed as shown below:

CupertinoDatePicker Color Unchanged

My theme in main.dart is as follows:

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  // This widget is the root of your application.
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      theme: ThemeData(
        textTheme: TextTheme(
          bodyText1: TextStyle(),
          bodyText2: TextStyle(),
            bodyColor: Colors.white.withOpacity(0.87),
            displayColor: Colors.white.withOpacity(0.87)),
        primaryColor: Colors.white,
        secondaryHeaderColor: Colors.white.withOpacity(0.60),
        backgroundColor: Color(0xff111016),
        elevatedButtonTheme: ElevatedButtonThemeData(
          style: ElevatedButton.styleFrom(
              padding: EdgeInsets.all(15),
              shape: CircleBorder(),
              elevation: 6,
              onPrimary: Color(0xff04072E),
              primary: Colors.yellow[100],
              textStyle: TextStyle(fontSize: 21)),

I’m not sure what is causing the text color of CupertinoDatePicker to be black, but I would like it to change its color. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

After changing to dateTimePickerTextStyle, the following occurs:

Cupertino DatePicker Crammed up


What you are looking for is the

dateTimePickerTextStyle: TextStyle(color: Colors.white),

This property is part of the CupertinoTextThemeData.

So your code should be like this,

  data: CupertinoThemeData(
    textTheme: CupertinoTextThemeData(
      dateTimePickerTextStyle: TextStyle(color: Colors.white),
  child: CupertinoDatePicker(
    onDateTimeChanged: (_) {},

From the official documentation,

Content texts are shown with CupertinoTextThemeData.dateTimePickerTextStyle.
