DoNothingAction class

An Action that doesn't perform any action when invoked.

Attaching a DoNothingAction to an Actions.actions mapping is a way to disable an action defined by a widget higher in the widget hierarchy.

If consumesKey returns false, then not only will this action do nothing, but it will stop the propagation of the key event used to trigger it to other widgets in the focus chain and tell the embedding that the key wasn't handled, allowing text input fields or other non-Flutter elements to receive that key event. The return value of consumesKey can be set via the consumesKey argument to the constructor.

This action can be bound to any Intent.
