pointerEventSource property Null safety

TestBindingEventSource pointerEventSource

The source of the current pointer event.

The pointerEventSource is set as the source parameter of handlePointerEventForSource and can be used in the immediate enclosing dispatchEvent.

When handlePointerEvent is called directly, pointerEventSource is TestBindingEventSource.device.

This means that pointer events triggered by the WidgetController (e.g. via WidgetController.tap) will result in actual interactions with the UI, but other pointer events such as those from physical taps will be dropped. See also shouldPropagateDevicePointerEvents if this is undesired.
