getMaxIntrinsicWidth method

  1. @mustCallSuper
double getMaxIntrinsicWidth(
  1. double height

Returns the smallest width beyond which increasing the width never decreases the preferred height. The preferred height is the value that would be returned by getMinIntrinsicHeight for that width.

The height argument may give a specific height to assume. The given height can be infinite, meaning that the intrinsic width in an unconstrained environment is being requested. The given height should never be negative or null.

This function should only be called on one's children. Calling this function couples the child with the parent so that when the child's layout changes, the parent is notified (via markNeedsLayout).

Calling this function is expensive as it can result in O(N^2) behavior.

Do not override this method. Instead, implement computeMaxIntrinsicWidth.


double getMaxIntrinsicWidth(double height) {
  assert(() {
    if (height < 0.0) {

          'getMaxIntrinsicWidth, consider using math.max() or double.clamp() '
          'to force the value into the valid range.',
