BorderDirectional class

A border of a box, comprised of four sides, the lateral sides of which flip over based on the reading direction.

The lateral sides are called start and end. When painted in left-to-right environments, the start side will be painted on the left and the end side on the right; in right-to-left environments, it is the reverse. The other two sides are top and bottom.

The sides are represented by BorderSide objects.

If the start and end sides are the same, then it is slightly more efficient to use a Border object rather than a BorderDirectional object.

See also:

  • BoxDecoration, which uses this class to describe its edge decoration.
  • BorderSide, which is used to describe each side of the box.
  • Theme, from the material layer, which can be queried to obtain appropriate colors to use for borders in a material app, as shown in the "divider" sample above.
