How to Move bottomsheet along with keyboard which has textfield(autofocused is true)?

Issue

I’m trying to make a bottomsheet that has a text field and autofocus is set to true so that the keyboard pops up. But, bottomsheet is overlapped by the keyboard. Is there a way to move bottomsheet above the keyboard?

Padding(
  padding:
      EdgeInsets.only(bottom: MediaQuery.of(context).viewInsets.bottom),
  child: Column(children: <Widget>[
    TextField(
      autofocus: true,
      decoration: InputDecoration(hintText: 'Title'),
    ),
    TextField(
      decoration: InputDecoration(hintText: 'Details!'),
      keyboardType: TextInputType.multiline,
      maxLines: 4,
    ),
    TextField(
      decoration: InputDecoration(hintText: 'Additional details!'),
      keyboardType: TextInputType.multiline,
      maxLines: 4,
    ),]);

Solution

Add isScrollControlled = true to BottomSheetDialog it’ll allow the bottom sheet to take the full required height which gives more insurance that TextField is not covered by the keyboard.

Add Keyboard padding using MediaQuery.of(context).viewInsets.bottom

Note

If your BottomSheetModel is Column make sure you add mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.min, otherwise the sheet will cover the whole screen.

Example

 showModalBottomSheet(
    shape: RoundedRectangleBorder(
        borderRadius: BorderRadius.vertical(top: Radius.circular(25.0))),
    backgroundColor: Colors.black,
    context: context,
    isScrollControlled: true,
    builder: (context) => Padding(
      padding: const EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal:18 ),
      child: Column(
            crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.start,
            mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.min,
            children: <Widget>[
              Padding(
                padding: const EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 12.0),
                child: Text('Enter your address',
                    style: TextStyles.textBody2),
              ),
              SizedBox(
                height: 8.0,
              ),
              Padding(
                padding: EdgeInsets.only(
                    bottom: MediaQuery.of(context).viewInsets.bottom),
                child: TextField(
                  decoration: InputDecoration(
                    hintText: 'adddrss'
                  ),
                  autofocus: true,
                  controller: _newMediaLinkAddressController,
                ),
              ),

              SizedBox(height: 10),
            ],
          ),
    ));

Please note that:

shape: RoundedRectangleBorder(
        borderRadius: BorderRadius.vertical(top: Radius.circular(25.0))),

It’s not required. It’s just that I’m creating a rounded bottom sheet.

padding: MediaQuery.of(context).viewInsets

UPDATED Flutter 2.2 breaks the changes again!” Now you need to give bottom padding once again so keyboard don’t overlaps bottomsheet.
