Flutter Align element from Column in line with Row

Issue

I need to build the following design:

enter image description here

Until now I created a Row that contains the 3 dots Icon, A column with the Circle avatar, a line and the plus Icon and the Input.

I can’t figure own how to align the center of the row (Input) with the center of the cercle avatar…

IntrinsicHeight(
  child: Row(
    mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
    crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.center,
    children: [
      Icon(Icons.drag_indicator),
      Column(
        mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
        crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.center,
        children: [
          Visibility(
            visible: this.index > 0,
            child: VerticalLine(),
          ),
          Material(
            borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(25.0),
            elevation: 8.0,
            child: CircleAvatar(
              backgroundColor: Colors.blue,
              child: Text(this._getLabel()),
              radius: 25.0,
            ),
          ),
          VerticalLine(),
          Icon(Icons.add_box_rounded, size: 15.0),
        ],
      ),
      Expanded(
        child: DropdownSearch<String>(
          mode: Mode.MENU,
          showSelectedItems: true,
          items: ["Brazil", "Italia (Disabled)", "Tunisia", 'Canada'],
          label: "End",
          hint: "country in menu mode",
          popupItemDisabled: (String s) => s.startsWith('I'),
          onChanged: print,
          selectedItem: "Brazil",
          maxHeight: 50.0,
        ),
      ),
    ],
  ),
);

This is how it looks:

Any idea how to align the center of the Circle Avatar with the center of the Input horizontally?

Solution

The problem lies in the fact that it is in fact centered, but compared to the complete Column that has the avatar and the lines.

I would suggest this structure instead (pseudocode)

Column:
    topline
    Row:
        dots
        avatar
        dropdown
    bottomline
    icon

That way those are aligned nicely. The problem you will have now though is that those lines won’t be aligned nicely. You probably will need to give the column crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.start and wrap the lines with a padding to add space to the left side of them according to your likeing
