ChipTheme class Null safety

Applies a chip theme to descendant RawChip-based widgets, like Chip, InputChip, ChoiceChip, FilterChip, and ActionChip.

A chip theme describes the color, shape and text styles for the chips it is applied to.

Descendant widgets obtain the current theme's ChipThemeData object using ChipTheme.of. When a widget uses ChipTheme.of, it is automatically rebuilt if the theme later changes.

The ThemeData object given by the Theme.of call also contains a default ThemeData.chipTheme that can be customized by copying it (using ChipThemeData.copyWith).

  • Chip, a chip that displays information and can be deleted.
  • InputChip, a chip that represents a complex piece of information, such as an entity (person, place, or thing) or conversational text, in a compact form.
  • ChoiceChip, allows a single selection from a set of options. Choice chips contain related descriptive text or categories.
  • FilterChip, uses tags or descriptive words as a way to filter content.
  • ActionChip, represents an action related to primary content.
  • ChipThemeData, which describes the actual configuration of a chip theme.
  • ThemeData, which describes the overall theme information for the application.
