MetaData class Null safety

Holds opaque meta data in the render tree.

Useful for decorating the render tree with information that will be consumed later. For example, you could store information in the render tree that will be used when the user interacts with the render tree but has no visual impact prior to the interaction.

Methods

createElement() SingleChildRenderObjectElement
RenderObjectWidgets always inflate to a RenderObjectElement subclass.

createRenderObject(BuildContext context) RenderMetaData
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. [...]
