StackOverlay Widget plugin for Flutter

StackOverlay is a widget that will uses 2 stacked screens(widgets). The foreground widget is overlayed over the background one and can be hidden or shown depending on a boolean value passed to the StackOverlay widget, just take a look at the example for more details.

Originally designed to provide as a way of forcing a "login" screen to automatically be shown should a user not be logged in(to whatever service) then dismissed once the user has logged in.

The widget takes 3 values

  • background - this is the background widget (usually the main screen)
  • foreground - this is the dismissable foreground widget( for example a Login screen)
  • showForeground - a boolean to indicate if the foreground widget should be shown or hidden (defaults to false if not provided)

There is now an optional parameter called wallpaper . If this is specified (it must be a BoxDefinition widget) it is used to generate a background to the complete stack. If your other layers have transparent backgrounds the wallpaper will show through - take a look at the updated example code for more details.
