Flutter table structure

Issue

I want to get this structure:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
item 1                                 item 2
item 3                                 item 4
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Basically I’d need to have a Table with 2 columns with 2 rows in each column, but this is the effect I get:

Here is my code:

new Container(
          decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.grey),
          child: new Row(
            children: <Widget>[

              new Column(
                children: <Widget>[
                  new Container(
                    decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.red),
                    child: new Text("item 1"),
                  ),
                  new Container(
                    decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.amber),
                    child: new Text("item 3"),
                  ),
                ],
              ),

              new Column(
                children: <Widget>[
                  new Container(
                    decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.green),
                    child: new Text("item 2"),
                  ),
                  new Container(
                    decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.teal),
                    child: new Text("item 4"),
                  )
                ],
              )

            ],
          ),
        )

I want each column to take half of the width space available.
On Android I’d use the weight property and that’s it.

Solution

using flex(by default it’s 1) you can separate the two columns and then use the crossAxisAlignmentto align them items in the beginning :
enter image description here

  new Container(
    decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.grey),
    child: new Row(
      children: <Widget>[
        Expanded(
          child: new Column(
            crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.start,
            children: <Widget>[
              new Container(
                decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.red),
                child: new Text("item 1"),
              ),
              new Container(
                decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.amber),
                child: new Text("item 3"),
              ),
            ],
          ),
        ),
        Expanded(
          child: new Column(
            crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.start,
            children: <Widget>[
              new Container(
                decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.green),
                child: new Text("item 2"),
              ),
              new Container(
                decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.teal),
                child: new Text("item 4"),
              )
            ],
          ),
        )
      ],
    ),
  )
