surfaceTintColor property

Color? surfaceTintColor

The color used as a surface tint overlay on the drawer's background color, which reflects the drawer's elevation.

This is not recommended for use. Material 3 spec introduced a set of tone-based surfaces and surface containers in its ColorScheme, which provide more flexibility. The intention is to eventually remove surface tint color from the framework.

To disable this feature, set surfaceTintColor to Colors.transparent.

Defaults to Colors.transparent.
