I have been messing around with
Column doesn’t allow the children widgets to be overlapped. However, every example I saw where widgets can be laid out adjacent to each other require hardcoded width and height.
In my layout, the height of the children is dependent upon the content of the children, and not known while in my
build function. Ideally, I would like to layout my widgets using
Column and use a negative top margin on the green and blue containers, however this is not allowed. Absolutely positioning them would not be difficult if I knew the rendered height of each widget, but that does not seem possible.
There is a nice library from Marc Glasberg called assorted_layout_widgets which has a
ColumnSuper widget which allows for overlapping columns, but it applies to all children the same.
Interested in ideas that others may have.
