RequestFocusAction class

An Action that requests the focus on the node it is invoked on.

This action can be used to request focus for a particular node, by calling Action.invoke like so:

Actions.invoke(context, const Intent(RequestFocusAction.key), focusNode: _focusNode);

Where the _focusNode is the node for which the focus will be requested.

The difference between requesting focus in this way versus calling _focusNode.requestFocus directly is that it will use the Action registered in the nearest Actions widget associated with key to make the request, rather than just requesting focus directly. This allows the action to have additional side effects, like logging, or undo and redo functionality.

However, this RequestFocusAction is the default action associated with the key in the WidgetsApp, and it simply requests focus and has no side effects.
