I  have a habit of developing utility apps for my own use, And I was old school  so  preferred  jQuery and Bootstrap for developing until flutter came along, So I started developing the app which I used more frequently. Its a very simple app which has the collection of articles and news and manage my personal notes in one application. btw way you can install the app via play store [Link Note – Apps on Google Play] or view the buggy web app  here: [https://linknote.ashrithgn.com/].

So as usual  during the development  first thing we need  or add to an app is the App bar which handles the navigation. Flutter has decent App bar but I need to customize. And i was able to do so, So just instead of documenting it to myself  i am wanted to share the code snippet in this article which might help some one to write or customize the  Top app bar and bottom Navigation bar. Btw the snippet design looks like this

Just to know more about Top and bottom app bar

Flutter Top and Bottom App Bar example.
Any mobile App or web app we start our development with application bar or menubar. in web menu bar plays crucial role it attracts users based on styling. butmen it come to mobile we tend to keep Application bar very minimal, so letproceed in creating menu bars in flutter application. Flutters’s…

So Enough of the introduction let begin with the our Top App Bar widget code.

// i have used Font awsome ICONs instead of Flutter Material icon

class MyTopbar extends StatelessWidget implements PreferredSizeWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return SafeArea(
        child: Container(
            padding: EdgeInsets.only(bottom: 10),
            decoration: BoxDecoration(
              borderRadius: BorderRadius.circular(8.0),
              color: Colors.white10,
              boxShadow: [
                BoxShadow(
                  color: Colors.white10,
                  blurRadius: 2.0,
                  spreadRadius: 0.0,
                  offset: Offset(2.0, 2.0), // shadow direction: bottom right
                )
              ],
            ),
            child: Row(
              mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.spaceBetween,
              children: [
                IconButton(
                  alignment: Alignment.centerLeft,
                  icon: Icon(FontAwesomeIcons.arrowLeft),
                  onPressed: () => {
                    if (Navigator.canPop(context)) {Navigator.pop(context)}
                  },
                ),
                //Place holder to add custom title
                Expanded(child: Container()),
                //You can add the other multiple icons need
              ],
            )));
  }

  @override
  Size get preferredSize {
    return Size.fromHeight(50.0);
  }
}

And now the bottom Code the snippet for the Bottom app bar

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:flutter_markdown/flutter_markdown.dart';
import 'package:font_awesome_flutter/font_awesome_flutter.dart';

class MyBottombar extends StatelessWidget
    implements PreferredSizeWidget {
  

 MyBottombar(//add the fields or the objects you need to control);

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Container(
        padding: EdgeInsets.only(top: 10, bottom: 5),
        decoration: BoxDecoration(border: Border(top: BorderSide())),
        child: Row(
          mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.spaceBetween,
          children: [
            Expanded(
                child: FittedBox(
              alignment: Alignment.center,
              fit: BoxFit.scaleDown,
              child: Row(
                children: [
                  IconButton(
                    icon: Icon(FontAwesomeIcons.listUl),
                    onPressed: () {
                  	}
                  ),
                  IconButton(
                    icon: Icon(FontAwesomeIcons.italic),
                    onPressed: () {
                    },
                  ),
                  IconButton(
                    icon: Icon(FontAwesomeIcons.quoteLeft),
                    onPressed: () {
                    },
                  ),
                  IconButton(
                    icon: Icon(FontAwesomeIcons.link),
                    onPressed: () {
                      sendCursorToLast();
                    },
                  ),
                  IconButton(
                    icon: Icon(FontAwesomeIcons.code),
                    onPressed: () {
                   
                    },
                  )
                ],
              ),
            ))
          ],
        ));
  }

@override
  Size get preferredSize {
    return Size.fromHeight(10.0);
  }
}

Now finally using these in the page

class NotesEditorPage extends StatelessWidget {
 
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return _buildBody(context);
  }

  _buildBody(BuildContext context) {
    return WillPopScope(
        child: Scaffold(
          appBar: MyTopbar(),
          bottomNavigationBar: MyBottombar(),
          body: SafeArea(
            child: ()
          ),
        ),
        onWillPop: () async {
          //save
          return true;
        });
  }
}
