animateTo method

TickerFuture animateTo(
  1. double target,
  2. {Duration? duration,
  3. Curve curve = Curves.linear}

Drives the animation from its current value to target.

Returns a TickerFuture that completes when the animation is complete.

The most recently returned TickerFuture, if any, is marked as having been canceled, meaning the future never completes and its TickerFuture.orCancel derivative future completes with a TickerCanceled error.

During the animation, status is reported as AnimationStatus.forward regardless of whether target > value or not. At the end of the animation, when target is reached, status is reported as AnimationStatus.completed.

If the target argument is the same as the current value of the animation, then this won't animate, and the returned TickerFuture will be already complete.
