DecoratedBox class

A widget that paints a Decoration either before or after its child paints.

Container insets its child by the widths of the borders; this widget does not.

Commonly used with BoxDecoration.

The child is not clipped. To clip a child to the shape of a particular ShapeDecoration, consider using a ClipPath widget.

This sample shows a radial gradient that draws a moon on a night sky:
  decoration: BoxDecoration(
    gradient: RadialGradient(
      center: const Alignment(-0.5, -0.6),
      radius: 0.15,
      colors: <Color>[
        const Color(0xFFEEEEEE),
        const Color(0xFF111133),
      stops: <double>[0.9, 1.0],
