PositionedTransition Widget – Flutter Widget Guide By Flutter Agency

In this series of Animated Widgets, we have been through animated widgets like AnimatedListState Widget, AnimatedCrossFade WidgetAnimatedModalBarrier WidgetAnimatedBuilder Widget so now this time we will learn about PositionedTransition Widget with a detailed article on it.

What is PositionedTransition Widget?

PositionedTransition Widget is an Animated version of Positioned Widget which takes a specific Animation<RelativeRect> to transition the child’s position from a start position to an end position over the lifetime of the animation.

It will work only works if it’s the child of a Stack Widget.

The Default Constructor of it will look like below:

	Key? key,
	required Animation rect,
	required Widget child

In the Above constructor, all fields marked with @required must not be empty so in the above constructor rect and child must not be empty.

Let go through its Properties now.


  • Key key: This attribute key controls how one widget replaces another widget in the tree.
  • Animation<RelativeRect> rect: This parameter is used to define the animation that controls the child’s size and position.
  • Widget child: This attribute is used to define the widget below this widget in the tree. This widget can only have one child. To layout multiple children, let this widget’s child be a widget such as Row Widget, Column Widget, or Stack Widget, which have a children’s property, and then provide the children to that widget.
  • Listenable listenable: This attribute specifies the Listenable to which this widget is listening.

How to use PositionedTransition Widget in Flutter?

The following code snippet tells us how to implement PositionedTransition Widget in Flutter.

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

class MyApp extends StatelessWidget {
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return const MaterialApp(
          const PositionedTransitionWidget(), // Use your custom widget as the home

class PositionedTransitionWidget extends StatefulWidget {
  const PositionedTransitionWidget({super.key});

  _PositionedTransitionWidgetState createState() =>

class _PositionedTransitionWidgetState extends State
    with TickerProviderStateMixin {
  AnimationController? _controller;
  bool _first = true;

  void initState() {
    _controller = AnimationController(
      vsync: this,
      duration: const Duration(seconds: 1),

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Column(
      mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.min,
      children: [
          color: Colors.blue[50],
          height: 300,
          child: Stack(
            children: [
                rect: relativeRectTween.animate(_controller!),
                child: Container(
                  width: 200,
                  height: 200,
                  padding: const EdgeInsets.all(20),
                  child: const FlutterLogo(),
        const SizedBox(
          height: 20,
          onPressed: () {
            if (_first) {
            } else {
            _first = !_first;
          child: const Text("CLICK ME!"),

final RelativeRectTween relativeRectTween = RelativeRectTween(
  begin: const RelativeRect.fromLTRB(40, 40, 0, 0),
  end: const RelativeRect.fromLTRB(0, 0, 40, 40),

We will get output like below:
