How to switch between the Flutter Date range Picker views?

1 min read

In the Flutter Date Range Picker, you can navigate between the picker views. Switching between picker views has been achieved using the `view` property of DateRangePickerController and tapping the header of the picker views.

Step 1:

Inside the state, initialize the controller for date range picker.

final DateRangePickerController _controller = DateRangePickerController();


Step 2:

Navigate between the picker views using the PopupMenuButton widget as follows. Also navigating between the picker views can be achieved by tapping the header of the picker views. 

leading: PopupMenuButton<String>(
  icon: Icon(Icons.calendar_today),
  itemBuilder: (BuildContext context) => choice) {
    return PopupMenuItem<String>(
      value: choice,
      child: Text(choice),
  onSelected: (String value) {
    if (value == 'Month') {
      _controller.view = DateRangePickerView.month;
    } else if (value == 'Year') {
      _controller.view = DateRangePickerView.year;
    } else if (value == 'Decade') {
      _controller.view = DateRangePickerView.decade;
    } else if (value == 'Century') {
      _controller.view = DateRangePickerView.century;


Step 3:

Place the calendar inside the body of the Scaffold widget.

body: Card(
  margin: const EdgeInsets.fromLTRB(50, 150, 50, 150),
  child: SfDateRangePicker(
    controller: _controller,
    view: DateRangePickerView.month,
