listview.builder doesnt works with scrollDirection: Axis.horizontal


This is my HomePage.dart in which I am trying to display list of products horizontally but when I set scrollDirection: Axis.horizontal the entire screen turns white, I have used hero widget for some details page and thats why I have created widget buidItem.

import 'package:EcommerceApp/animations/fadeAnimations.dart';
import 'package:EcommerceApp/screens/info_page.dart';
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

class MyHomePage extends StatelessWidget {
  final List<Map<String, String>> dataList = [
    {"imageLink": "images/1.jpg", "tag": "one", "name": "product1"},
    {"imageLink": "images/2.jpg", "tag": "two", "name": "product2"},
    {"imageLink": "images/3.jpg", "tag": "three", "name": "product3"},
    {"imageLink": "images/4.jpg", "tag": "four", "name": "product4"},
    {"imageLink": "images/bensen.jpg", "tag": "five", "name": "product5"},
    {"imageLink": "images/marl.jpg", "tag": "six", "name": "product6"},
    {"imageLink": "images/fs.jpg", "tag": "seven", "name": "product7"},
    {"imageLink": "images/marl.jpg", "tag": "eight", "name": "product8"},
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        backgroundColor: Colors.transparent,
        elevation: 0,
        title: Text(
          "Home Page",
          style: TextStyle(color:, fontSize: 25),
      body: Column(
        children: [
            child: ListView.builder(
                 scrollDirection: Axis.horizontal, // this scrollDirection is throwing error but when I remove this It works just fine
                padding: EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 10),
                itemCount: dataList.length,
                itemBuilder: (context, index) {
                  return buidItem(
                      image: dataList[index]['imageLink'],
                      tag: dataList[index]['tag'],
                      name: dataList[index]['name'],
                      context: context);
      // This trailing comma makes auto-formatting nicer for build methods.

  Widget buidItem(
      {String image = "images/",
      @required String tag,
      @required String name,
      @required BuildContext context}) {
    return Material(
        child: Hero(
            tag: tag,
            child: GestureDetector(
              onTap: () {
                        builder: (context) => InfoPage(
                              image: image,
                              tag: tag,
                              name: name,
              child: Container(
                height: 100,
                width: double.infinity,
                decoration: BoxDecoration(
                  image: DecorationImage(
                      fit: BoxFit.cover, image: AssetImage(image)),


Wrap your ListView.Builder() inside an Expanded widget. Everytime you have a growing widget e.g. ListView or GridView insdie a Row or Column this error will come. The fix is either to provide a fixed width or wrap it under a Expanded widget.
