[Solved] How do I Set Background image in Flutter?

Question

Asked by Arun K on May 25, 2017 (source).

I am trying to set a background image for the home page. I am getting the image place from start of the screen and filling the width but not the height. Am I missing something in my code? Are there image standards for flutter? Do images scale based on each phone's screen resolution?

class BaseLayout extends StatelessWidget{
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context){
    return new Scaffold(
      body: new Container(
        child: new Column(
          mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.start,
          children: [
            new Image.asset("assets/images/bulb.jpg") 
          ]
        )
      )
    );
  }
}

I'm not sure I understand your question, but if you want the image to fill the entire screen you can use a DecorationImage with a fit of BoxFit.cover.

class BaseLayout extends StatelessWidget{
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context){
    return Scaffold(
      body: Container(
        decoration: BoxDecoration(
          image: DecorationImage(
            image: AssetImage("assets/images/bulb.jpg"),
            fit: BoxFit.cover,
          ),
        ),
        child: null /* add child content here */,
      ),
    );
  }
}

For your second question, here is a link to the documentation on how to embed resolution-dependent asset images into your app.
