FocusTraversalPolicy class Null safety

An object used to specify a focus traversal policy used for configuring a FocusTraversalGroup widget.

The focus traversal policy is what determines which widget is "next", "previous", or in a direction from the widget associated with the currently focused FocusNode (usually a Focus widget).

One of the pre-defined subclasses may be used, or define a custom policy to create a unique focus order.

When defining your own, your subclass should implement sortDescendants to provide the order in which you would like the descendants to be traversed.

Abstract const constructor. This constructor enables subclasses to provide const constructors so that they can be used in const expressions.


hashCode int
The hash code for this object.
runtimeType Type
A representation of the runtime type of the object.


changedScope({FocusNode? node, FocusScopeNode? oldScope}) → void
This is called whenever the given node is re-parented into a new scope, so that the policy has a chance to update or invalidate any cached data that it maintains per scope about the node.
debugFillProperties(DiagnosticPropertiesBuilder properties) → void
Add additional properties associated with the node.
findFirstFocus(FocusNode currentNode, {bool ignoreCurrentFocus = false}) FocusNode?
Returns the node that should receive focus if focus is traversing forwards, and there is no current focus.
findFirstFocusInDirection(FocusNode currentNode, TraversalDirection direction) FocusNode?
Returns the first node in the given direction that should receive focus if there is no current focus in the scope to which the currentNode belongs.
findLastFocus(FocusNode currentNode, {bool ignoreCurrentFocus = false}) FocusNode
Returns the node that should receive focus if focus is traversing backwards, and there is no current focus.
inDirection(FocusNode currentNode, TraversalDirection direction) bool
Focuses the next widget in the given direction in the focus scope that contains the given currentNode.
invalidateScopeData(FocusScopeNode node) → void
Clears the data associated with the given FocusScopeNode for this object.
next(FocusNode currentNode) bool
Focuses the next widget in the focus scope that contains the given currentNode.
noSuchMethod(Invocation invocation) → dynamic
Invoked when a non-existent method or property is accessed.
previous(FocusNode currentNode) bool
Focuses the previous widget in the focus scope that contains the given currentNode.
sortDescendants(Iterable<FocusNode> descendants, FocusNode currentNode) Iterable<FocusNode>
Sorts the given descendants into focus order.
toDiagnosticsNode({String? name, DiagnosticsTreeStyle? style}) DiagnosticsNode
Returns a debug representation of the object that is used by debugging tools and by DiagnosticsNode.toStringDeep.
toString({DiagnosticLevel minLevel =}) String
A string representation of this object.
toStringShort() String
A brief description of this object, usually just the runtimeType and the hashCode.


operator ==(Object other) bool
The equality operator.
