Last updated on February 11, 2022 Augustus Loading... One comment

In Flutter, we can use the GridTile widget to display text over an image. This method is easier to implement but less customizable than using the Stack widget.

The code:

      appBar: AppBar(
        title: const Text('KindaCode.com'),
      body: Center(
        child: SizedBox(
          width: double.infinity,
          height: 250,
          child: GridTile(
            child: Image.network(
                width: double.infinity,
                height: 250,
                fit: BoxFit.cover),
            footer: Container(
              // You can use GridTileBar instead
              child: const Text(
                'This Is A Beautiful Photo',
                style: TextStyle(
                    color: Colors.white,
                    fontSize: 18,
                    fontWeight: FontWeight.bold),
                textAlign: TextAlign.right,
              width: double.infinity,
              padding: const EdgeInsets.symmetric(horizontal: 20, vertical: 15),
              color: Colors.black54,
