Flutter SliverAppBar with Tabs overlays content

Issue

I have followed this tutorial (https://medium.com/@diegoveloper/flutter-collapsing-toolbar-sliver-app-bar-14b858e87abe) to create a CollapsingToolbar with a TabBar.

The problem is that when I scroll the content of the body overlays the tabBar.

Here is the code:

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
return Scaffold(
  body: DefaultTabController(
    length: 2,
    child: NestedScrollView(
      headerSliverBuilder: (BuildContext context, bool innerBoxIsScrolled) {
        return <Widget>[
          SliverAppBar(
            expandedHeight: 200.0,
            floating: false,
            pinned: true,
            flexibleSpace: FlexibleSpaceBar(
                centerTitle: true,
                title: Text("Collapsing Toolbar",
                    style: TextStyle(
                      color: Colors.white,
                      fontSize: 16.0,
                    )),
                background: Image.network(
                  "https://images.pexels.com/photos/396547/pexels-photo-396547.jpeg?auto=compress&cs=tinysrgb&h=350",
                  fit: BoxFit.cover,
                )),
          ),
          SliverPersistentHeader(
            delegate: _SliverAppBarDelegate(
              TabBar(
                labelColor: Colors.black87,
                unselectedLabelColor: Colors.grey,
                tabs: [
                  Tab(icon: Icon(Icons.info), text: "Tab 1"),
                  Tab(icon: Icon(Icons.lightbulb_outline), text: "Tab 2"),
                ],
              ),
            ),
            pinned: true,
          ),
        ];
      },
      body: Text("Sample text"),
    ),
  ),
);

And the delegate:

class _SliverAppBarDelegate extends SliverPersistentHeaderDelegate {
  _SliverAppBarDelegate(this._tabBar);

  final TabBar _tabBar;

  @override
  double get minExtent => _tabBar.preferredSize.height;
  @override
  double get maxExtent => _tabBar.preferredSize.height;

  @override
  Widget build(
      BuildContext context, double shrinkOffset, bool overlapsContent) {
    return new Container(
      child: _tabBar,
    );
  }

  @override
  bool shouldRebuild(_SliverAppBarDelegate oldDelegate) {
    return false;
  }
}

Any idea on this?

Solution

In case someone comes with the same problem, the way I solve this was using: https://pub.dartlang.org/packages/extended_nested_scroll_view

Example:

class _MatchFragmentState extends State<MatchFragment> with TickerProviderStateMixin {
  TabController primaryTC;

  @override
  void initState() {
    primaryTC = new TabController(length: 3, vsync: this);
    super.initState();
  }

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {

final double statusBarHeight = MediaQuery.of(context).padding.top;
//var tabBarHeight = primaryTabBar.preferredSize.height;
var pinnedHeaderHeight =
//statusBar height
statusBarHeight +
    //pinned SliverAppBar height in header
    kToolbarHeight;

return Scaffold(
    body: NestedScrollViewRefreshIndicator(
      onRefresh: onRefresh,
      child: ExtendedNestedScrollView(
          headerSliverBuilder: (c, f) {
            return <Widget>[
              SliverAppBar(
                pinned: true,
                expandedHeight: kExpandedHeight,
                title: Text('Title'),
                flexibleSpace: FlexibleSpaceBar(
                    background: Image.network(
              "https://images.pexels.com/photos/396547/pexels-photo-396547.jpeg?auto=compress&cs=tinysrgb&h=350",
              fit: BoxFit.cover,
            ))
                ),
              )
            ];
          },
          pinnedHeaderSliverHeight: pinnedHeaderHeight,
          keepOnlyOneInnerNestedScrollPositionActive: true,
          body: Column(
            children: <Widget>[
              TabBar(
                controller: primaryTC,
                labelColor: Colors.black87,
                unselectedLabelColor: Colors.grey,
                tabs: [
                  Tab(text: "Tab1"),
                  Tab(text: "Tab2"),
                  Tab(text: "Tab3"),
                ],
              ),
              Expanded(
                child: TabBarView(
                  controller: primaryTC,
                  children: <Widget>[
                    new Tab1Screen(),
                    new Tab2Screen(),
                    new Tab3Screen()
                  ],
                ),
              )
            ],
          )
        ),
      )
    );
  }
}

Future<Null> onRefresh() {
  final Completer<Null> completer = new Completer<Null>();
  new Timer(const Duration(seconds: 1), () {
    completer.complete(null);
  });
  return completer.future.then((_) {});
}
