How to Apply Theme on MaterialButton or RaisedButton In Flutter?

One way to do it is to define ButtonTheme in theme in MaterialApp.

void main() {
  runApp(MaterialApp(
    home: Home(),
    theme: ThemeData(
        accentColor: Colors.redAccent,
        buttonTheme: ButtonThemeData(
           buttonColor: Colors.blueAccent,
           shape: RoundedRectangleBorder(),
           textTheme: ButtonTextTheme.accent,
           ....
    )),
  ));
}

class Home extends StatelessWidget {
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
          title: Text("Button Theme"),
          backgroundColor: Colors.green),
      body: Center(
          child: RaisedButton( //Button Color is as define in theme
        onPressed: () {},
        child: Text("Send"), //Text Color as define in theme
      )),
    );
  }
}

with this, all the buttons defined under this MaterialApp will carry this Theme Style.

Text Color will be the accentColor define in the ThemeData as i have defined textTheme: ButtonTextTheme.accent so it will Pick accentColor

Button picking Theme style as defined in the theme.

class MyButton extends StatelessWidget {
  final String text;
  final Color textColor;
  final Color buttonColor;
  final Function() onPressed;
  MyButton({
    @required this.text,
    this.buttonColor = const Color(0xFF000000) /** Default buttonColor */,
    @required this.onPressed,
    this.textColor = const Color(0xFFDDDDDD) /** Default textColor */,
  });
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialButton(
      color: buttonColor,
      onPressed: onPressed,
      child: Text(text,
          style: TextStyle(
            color: textColor,
            fontSize: 20.0,
          )),
    );
  }
}

Try a code snippet like the below:

void main() {
  runApp(
    MaterialApp(
      home: const Home(),
      theme: ThemeData.from(
        colorScheme: const ColorScheme.light(),
      ).copyWith(
        textButtonTheme: TextButtonThemeData(
          style: TextButton.styleFrom(
            primary: Colors.orange,
          ),
        ),
        elevatedButtonTheme: ElevatedButtonThemeData(
          style: ElevatedButton.styleFrom(
            onPrimary: Colors.yellow,
            primary: Colors.blue,
          ),
        ),
        outlinedButtonTheme: OutlinedButtonThemeData(
          style: OutlinedButton.styleFrom(
            primary: Colors.purple,
            backgroundColor: Colors.green,
          ),
        ),
      ),
    ),
  );
}

class Home extends StatelessWidget {
  const Home({Key? key}) : super(key: key);

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: const Text("Button Theme Example"),
      ),
      body: Center(
        child: Column(
          mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
          children: [
            TextButton(
              onPressed: () {
                Fluttertoast.showToast(msg: "TextButton Pressed");
              },
              child: const Text('TextButton'),
            ),
            ElevatedButton(
              onPressed: () {
                Fluttertoast.showToast(msg: "ElevatedButton Pressed");
              },
              child: const Text('ElevatedButton'),
            ),
            OutlinedButton(
              onPressed: () {
                Fluttertoast.showToast(msg: "OutlinedButton Pressed");
              },
              child: const Text('OutlinedButton'),
            ),
          ],
        ),
      ),
