Flutter: Creating Strikethrough Text (Cross Out Text)

Last updated on December 13, 2021 A Goodman Loading... Post a comment

This concise article shows you how to create a strikethrough text (cross out text) in Flutter.

The TL;DR

You can get the job done easily by setting the decoration property of the TextStyle class to TextDecoration.lineThrough, like this:

Text(
    'KindaCode.com',
     style: TextStyle(decoration: TextDecoration.lineThrough),
)

The Example

A common use case for using strikethrough text is displaying both the usual price and the discount price of a product. This will very likely encounter this task when developing a commerce app.

The code

You can put multiple Text widgets with different styles inside a Row widget to produce the app shown in the screenshot above:

 Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: const Text('KindaCode.com'),
      ),
      body: Center(
        child: Row(
          mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
          children: const [
            Text(
              '\$7',
              style: TextStyle(
                  fontSize: 35, color: Colors.red, fontWeight: FontWeight.bold),
            ),
            Text(
              ' \$10 ',
              style: TextStyle(
                  fontSize: 35,
                  decoration: TextDecoration.lineThrough,
                  color: Colors.grey),
            ),
            Text(
              '(Save 30%)',
              style: TextStyle(fontSize: 35, color: Colors.blue),
            )
          ],
        ),
      ),
);
