The AdBanner widget is used to show an advertisement banner inside your app. The AdBanner widget may display texts, images, and other rich media such as video ads. Our AdBanner widget uses Admob which is an Ad network from Google.


Before you start adding the AddBanner widget, you'll need to add the API keys.

Adding AdBanner to your project

Showing AdBanner From AdMob comprises of following steps:

1. Adding AdBanner widget

To add the AdBanner widget to your project:

  1. Add the Column widget from the widget tree or from the canvas area.

  2. Drag the AdBanner widget from the Base Elements tab (in the Widget Panel) or add it directly from the widget tree.

  3. Move to the property editor and scroll down to the Ad Banner Dimensions section and adjust the Width and Height property.

If you leave the Width property empty, AdBanner will take the full width of the screen.

2. Assigning Ad Unit ID

The Ad Unit ID is the unique identifier given to every ad on Admob. You can get this by creating a new ad unit from your Admob account.

To assign the ad unit Id:

  1. Go to the Admob account dashboard, click Apps on the left side menu and select your app.

  2. Select Ad units and then click on the Add add unit.

  5. Click Create ad unit.

  6. Copy the ad unit ID (the second one) and then click Done.

  7. Paste it into the Android Ad Unit ID input box.

  8. Similarly, create, copy and paste Ad unit for the iOS app as well.
