Flutter Button onPressed() Tutorial

Flutter Button on Pressed

In this tutorial, we will learn how to execute a function when user pressed a button.

To execute a function when button is pressed, use onPressed() property of the button.

Sample Code Snippet

Following is a sample code snippet to execute a function when RaisedButton is pressed.

  onPressed: () => {
	//do something
  child: new Text('Click me'),


In this example Flutter Application, we shall take a RaisedButton and execute a function when the button is pressed.

To recreate this Button onPressed() example, create an empty Flutter Application and replace main.dart with the following code.


import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main() {
  runApp(new MaterialApp(
    home: new MyApp(),

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  _State createState() => new _State();

class _State extends State<MyApp> {
  int count = 0;

  void incrementCounter() {
    setState(() {

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new Scaffold(
      appBar: new AppBar(
        title: new Text('Flutter Tutorial - googleflutter.com'),
      body: new Center(
        child: new RaisedButton(
          onPressed: () => {
          child: new Text('Button Clicks - ${count}'),

This this flutter application, and you should see an UI similar to that of the following. When you press the button, we shall execute a function to increment the counter placed in the button text.


In this Flutter Tutorial, we learned how to respond to a Button press action and execute a function using onPressed property.
