CupertinoSegmentedControl<T extends Object> class

An iOS-style segmented control.

Displays the widgets provided in the Map of children in a horizontal list. Used to select between a number of mutually exclusive options. When one option in the segmented control is selected, the other options in the segmented control cease to be selected.

A segmented control can feature any Widget as one of the values in its Map of children. The type T is the type of the keys used to identify each widget and determine which widget is selected. As required by the Map class, keys must be of consistent types and must be comparable. The ordering of the keys will determine the order of the widgets in the segmented control.

When the state of the segmented control changes, the widget calls the onValueChanged callback. The map key associated with the newly selected widget is returned in the onValueChanged callback. Typically, widgets that use a segmented control will listen for the onValueChanged callback and rebuild the segmented control with a new groupValue to update which option is currently selected.

The children will be displayed in the order of the keys in the Map. The height of the segmented control is determined by the height of the tallest widget provided as a value in the Map of children. The width of each child in the segmented control will be equal to the width of widest child, unless the combined width of the children is wider than the available horizontal space. In this case, the available horizontal space is divided by the number of provided children to determine the width of each widget. The selection area for each of the widgets in the Map of children will then be expanded to fill the calculated space, so each widget will appear to have the same dimensions.

A segmented control may optionally be created with custom colors. The unselectedColor, selectedColor, borderColor, and pressedColor arguments can be used to override the segmented control's colors from CupertinoTheme defaults.

This example shows a CupertinoSegmentedControl with an enum type.

The callback provided to onValueChanged should update the state of the parent StatefulWidget using the State.setState method, so that the parent gets rebuilt; for example:
