The number of physical pixels on each side of the display rectangle into which the view can render, but which may be partially obscured by system UI (such as the system notification area), or physical intrusions in the display (e.g. overscan regions on television screens or phone sensor housings).
This value is calculated by taking
max(0.0, FlutterView.viewPadding - FlutterView.viewInsets). This will treat a system IME that increases the
bottom inset as consuming that much of the bottom padding. For example, on
an iPhone X, EdgeInsets.bottom of FlutterView.padding is the same as
EdgeInsets.bottom of FlutterView.viewPadding when the soft keyboard is
not drawn (to account for the bottom soft button area), but will be
when the soft keyboard is visible.
When this changes, PlatformDispatcher.onMetricsChanged is called. When using the Flutter framework, using MediaQuery.of to obtain the padding (via MediaQueryData.padding), instead of directly obtaining the padding from a FlutterView, will automatically cause any widgets dependent on the padding to rebuild when it changes, without having to listen to PlatformDispatcher.onMetricsChanged.
ViewPadding get padding => _viewConfiguration.padding;
