Expand area of CupertinoNavigationBar leading

Issue

I am using CupertinoNavigationBar to make a layout expected like image below

enter image description here

In left side/leading area, I override default back button to create the layout, but instead I got an overflow

enter image description here

return CupertinoPageScaffold(
  ...
  leading: Row(
    children: <Widget>[
      UtomoDeckNavigationBar.getDefaultBackButton(context: context, isLightTheme: true),
        Column(
          crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.start,
          mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
          children: <Widget>[
            Text(widget.chat.name,
              style: TextStyle(
                color: CupertinoColors.black,
                fontWeight: FontWeight.bold,
                fontSize: 14.0)),
            Text('Online',
              style: TextStyle(color: CupertinoColors.black, fontSize: 12.0))
        ],
      )
    ],
  )
)

and the error

flutter: ══╡ EXCEPTION CAUGHT BY RENDERING LIBRARY ╞═════════════════════════════════════════════════════════
flutter: The following assertion was thrown during layout:
flutter: A RenderFlex overflowed by 34 pixels on the right.
flutter:
flutter: The overflowing RenderFlex has an orientation of Axis.horizontal.
flutter: The edge of the RenderFlex that is overflowing has been marked in the rendering with a yellow and
flutter: black striped pattern. This is usually caused by the contents being too big for the RenderFlex.
flutter: Consider applying a flex factor (e.g. using an Expanded widget) to force the children of the
flutter: RenderFlex to fit within the available space instead of being sized to their natural size.
flutter: This is considered an error condition because it indicates that there is content that cannot be

Can I expand the constraint of the leading area, or maybe there’s a better approach to do this?

Thank you.

Solution

to solve this, I use Row with MainAxisAlignment.start inside middle instead of leading.

EDIT :

Use Container with infinity width instead of Row, its children will overflow if its children widgets are more than the parent (Row), and TextOverflow.ellipsis won’t help
