Flutter How to check if Sliver AppBar is expanded or collapsed?

Issue

I am using a SliverAppBar in Flutter, with a background widget.

The thing is When it’s expanded, the title and icons (leading and actions) should be white in order to be seen correctly, and when it’s collapsed, they should be changed to black.

Any ideas on how I can get a bool out of it? Or other ways of resolving this problem.

Thank you.

class SliverExample extends StatefulWidget {
  final Widget backgroundWidget;
  final Widget bodyWidgets;

  SliverExample({
    this.backgroundWidget,
    this.body,
  });
  @override
  _SliverExampleState createState() => _SliverExampleState();
}

class _SliverExampleState extends State<SliverExample> {

  // I need something like this
  // To determine if SliverAppBar is expanded or not.
  bool isAppBarExpanded = false;

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {

    // To change the item's color accordingly
    // To be used in multiple places in code
    Color itemColor = isAppBarExpanded ? Colors.white : Colors.black;

    // In my case PrimaryColor is white,
    // and the background widget is dark

    return Scaffold(
      body: CustomScrollView(
        slivers: <Widget>[
          SliverAppBar(
            pinned: true,
            leading: BackButton(
              color: itemColor, // Here
            ),
            actions: <Widget>[
              IconButton(
                icon: Icon(
                  Icons.shopping_cart,
                  color: itemColor, // Here
                ),
                onPressed: () {},
              ),
            ],
            expandedHeight: 200.0,
            flexibleSpace: FlexibleSpaceBar(
              centerTitle: true,
              title: Text(
                'title',
                style: TextStyle(
                  fontSize: 18.0,
                  color: itemColor, // Here
                ),
              ),
              // Not affecting the question.              
              background: widget.backgroundWidget,
            ),
          ),
          // Not affecting the question.
          SliverToBoxAdapter(child: widget.body),
        ],
      ),
    );
  }
}

Solution

You can use LayoutBuilder to get sliver AppBar biggest height. When biggest.height = MediaQuery.of(context).padding.top + kToolbarHeight, it actually means sliver appbar is collapsed.

Here is a full example, in this example MediaQuery.of(context).padding.top + kToolbarHeight = 80.0:

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() => runApp(MaterialApp(
      home: MyApp(),
    ));

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();
}

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {
  var top = 0.0;

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
        body: NestedScrollView(
      headerSliverBuilder: (BuildContext context, bool innerBoxIsScrolled) {
        return <Widget>[
          SliverAppBar(
              expandedHeight: 200.0,
              floating: false,
              pinned: true,
              flexibleSpace: LayoutBuilder(
                  builder: (BuildContext context, BoxConstraints constraints) {
                // print('constraints=' + constraints.toString());
                top = constraints.biggest.height;
                return FlexibleSpaceBar(
                    centerTitle: true,
                    title: AnimatedOpacity(
                        duration: Duration(milliseconds: 300),
                        //opacity: top == MediaQuery.of(context).padding.top + kToolbarHeight ? 1.0 : 0.0,
                        opacity: 1.0,
                        child: Text(
                          top.toString(),
                          style: TextStyle(fontSize: 12.0),
                        )),
                    background: Image.network(
                      "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1542601098-3adb3baeb1ec?ixlib=rb-0.3.5&ixid=eyJhcHBfaWQiOjEyMDd9&s=5bb9a9747954cdd6eabe54e3688a407e&auto=format&fit=crop&w=500&q=60",
                      fit: BoxFit.cover,
                    ));
              })),
        ];
      },body: ListView.builder(
        itemCount: 100,
        itemBuilder: (context,index){
          return Text("List Item: " + index.toString());
        },
      ),
    ));
  }
}

Final result:
