How to make a ReorderableListView ListTile draggable on button/icon press for Flutter?

Posted by Jennifer | Updated on

Want to make a ReorderableListView ListTile draggable on button/icon press for Flutter? I think the Icon(Icons.drag_handle) it’s just for the looks there, to drag the item in a ReorderableListView you have to long press it.

You can use flutter_reorderable_list and achieve that. As you can see in its demo, this plugin works just the way you want to.

However, it works quite differently of ReorderableListView, the code change can be a bit overwhelming. I created a Widget to simplify that switch, the widget is here and its demo is here.

Take a look and use it if it fits your use case.
