Listener class Null safety

A widget that calls callbacks in response to common pointer events.

It listens to events that can construct gestures, such as when the pointer is pressed, moved, then released or canceled.

It does not listen to events that are exclusive to mouse, such as when the mouse enters, exits or hovers a region without pressing any buttons. For these events, use MouseRegion.

Rather than listening for raw pointer events, consider listening for higher-level gestures using GestureDetector.

Layout behavior

See BoxConstraints for an introduction to box layout models.

If it has a child, this widget defers to the child for sizing behavior. If it does not have a child, it grows to fit the parent instead.

This example makes a Container react to being touched, showing a count of the number of pointer downs and ups.
To create a local project with this code sample, run:
flutter create --sample=widgets.Listener.1 mysample

Methods

createElement() SingleChildRenderObjectElement
RenderObjectWidgets always inflate to a RenderObjectElement subclass.
inherited
createRenderObject(BuildContext context) RenderPointerListener
Creates an instance of the RenderObject class that this RenderObjectWidget represents, using the configuration described by this RenderObjectWidget. [...]
override
debugDescribeChildren() List<DiagnosticsNode>
Returns a list of DiagnosticsNode objects describing this node's children. [...]
@protected, inherited
debugFillProperties(DiagnosticPropertiesBuilder properties) → void
Add additional properties associated with the node. [...]
override
didUnmountRenderObject(covariant RenderObject renderObject) → void
A render object previously associated with this widget has been removed from the tree. The given RenderObject will be of the same type as returned by this object's createRenderObject.
@protected, inherited
noSuchMethod(Invocation invocation) → dynamic
Invoked when a non-existent method or property is accessed. [...]
inherited
toDiagnosticsNode({String? name, DiagnosticsTreeStyle? style}) DiagnosticsNode
Returns a debug representation of the object that is used by debugging tools and by DiagnosticsNode.toStringDeep. [...]
inherited
toString({DiagnosticLevel minLevel: DiagnosticLevel.info}) String
A string representation of this object. [...]
inherited
toStringDeep({String prefixLineOne: '', String? prefixOtherLines, DiagnosticLevel minLevel: DiagnosticLevel.debug}) String
Returns a string representation of this node and its descendants. [...]
inherited
toStringShallow({String joiner: ', ', DiagnosticLevel minLevel: DiagnosticLevel.debug}) String
Returns a one-line detailed description of the object. [...]
inherited
toStringShort() String
A short, textual description of this widget.
inherited
updateRenderObject(BuildContext context, covariant RenderPointerListener renderObject) → void
Copies the configuration described by this RenderObjectWidget to the given RenderObject, which will be of the same type as returned by this object's createRenderObject. [...]
override

Operators

operator ==(Object other) bool
The equality operator. [...]
