defaultHitTestChildren method

bool defaultHitTestChildren(
  1. BoxHitTestResult result,
  2. {required Offset position}

Performs a hit test on each child by walking the child list backwards.

Stops walking once after the first child reports that it contains the given point. Returns whether any children contain the given point.

  • defaultPaint, which paints the children appropriate for this hit-testing strategy.


bool defaultHitTestChildren(BoxHitTestResult result, { required Offset position }) {
  ChildType? child = lastChild;
  while (child != null) {
    // The x, y parameters have the top left of the node's box as the origin.
    final ParentDataType childParentData = child.parentData! as ParentDataType;
    final bool isHit = result.addWithPaintOffset(
      offset: childParentData.offset,
      position: position,
      hitTest: (BoxHitTestResult result, Offset transformed) {
        assert(transformed == position - childParentData.offset);
        return child!.hitTest(result, position: transformed);
    if (isHit) {
      return true;
    child = childParentData.previousSibling;
  return false;
