debugWidgetBuilderValue function

void debugWidgetBuilderValue (Widget widget Widget built)

Asserts that the built widget is not null.

Used when the given widget calls a builder function to check that the function returned a non-null value, as typically required.

Does nothing when asserts are disabled.

Implementation

void debugWidgetBuilderValue(Widget widget, Widget built) {
  assert(() {
    if (built == null) {
      throw FlutterError.fromParts(<DiagnosticsNode>[
        ErrorSummary('A build function returned null.'),
        DiagnosticsProperty<Widget>('The offending widget is', widget, style: DiagnosticsTreeStyle.errorProperty),
        ErrorDescription('Build functions must never return null.'),
        ErrorHint(
          'To return an empty space that causes the building widget to fill available room, return "Container()". '
          'To return an empty space that takes as little room as possible, return "Container(width: 0.0, height: 0.0)".'
        ),
      ]);
    }
    if (widget == built) {
      throw FlutterError.fromParts(<DiagnosticsNode>[
        ErrorSummary('A build function returned context.widget.'),
        DiagnosticsProperty<Widget>('The offending widget is', widget, style: DiagnosticsTreeStyle.errorProperty),
        ErrorDescription(
          'Build functions must never return their BuildContext parameter\'s widget or a child that contains "context.widget". '
          'Doing so introduces a loop in the widget tree that can cause the app to crash.'
        ),
      ]);
    }
    return true;
  }());
