[Solved] Flutter: RenderBox was not laid out when working with ListView

I am trying to display to Listviews, one horizontal and the other is vertical. The horizontal one is working, but the vertical Listview is showing this error “RenderBox was not laid out”.

I have read some other answers regarding this error here on stackoverflow, but still cant make it work.

when i run it, i get this error “RenderBox was not laid out: RenderRepaintBoundary#6bd44 relayoutBoundary=up14 NEEDS-PAINT ‘package:flutter/src/rendering/box.dart’:”

Solution #1:

This happens often when you’re trying to place Scrollable widget into an infinite heigth widget or infinite heigth (Column) widget into scrollable (SingleChildScrollView,ListView) .

This means you’re trying to use SingleChildScrollView> Column> ListView> Column

You should add following property to Column an ListView

Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return SingleChildScrollView(
    child: Column(
      mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.min, // Use children total size
    children: [
      ListView.builder(
      itemCount : 10,
        shrinkWrap: true, // Use  children total size                
        itemBuilder : (a, b)=>Text("ffffffffffff")     
      )
    ],
    ),); 
  }

Solution #2:

use this line inside column mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.min in place this line mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
also this line shrinkWrap: true inside ListView.builder and this physics: NeverScrollableScrollPhysics() And put this line physics: AlwaysScrollableScrollPhysics() inside the SingleChildScrollView, because you cannot repeatedly scroll in more than one widget (SingleChildScrollView,ListView.builder) in this case.
