How to do date navigations easily with Flutter Calendar

Platform: Flutter |
Control: SfCalendar

In the Flutter Event Calendar, you can easily navigate to the specific date of the day view by using the setting the allowViewNavigation, showDatePickerButton properties.

STEP 1 : Set the allowViewNavigation, showDatePickerButton value as true for easy navigation. Also easily move to the today’s date by tap on the picker icon of the header view.

child: SfCalendar(
  allowedViews: <CalendarView>[
    CalendarView.day,
    CalendarView.week,
    CalendarView.workWeek,
    CalendarView.month,
    CalendarView.timelineDay,
    CalendarView.timelineWeek,
    CalendarView.timelineWorkWeek,
    CalendarView.timelineMonth,
    CalendarView.schedule,
  ],
  dataSource: _getDataSource(),
  showDatePickerButton: true,
  allowViewNavigation: true,
),

STEP 2: By tap on the month cell and view header of the calendar views, you can navigate to the specific date with day view. Please find the entire code snippet for the same.
