IndexedSemantics class Null safety

A widget that annotates the child semantics with an index.

Semantic indexes are used by TalkBack/Voiceover to make announcements about the current scroll state. Certain widgets like the ListView will automatically provide a child index for building semantics. A user may wish to manually provide semantic indexes if not all child of the scrollable contribute semantics.

The example below handles spacers in a scrollable that don't contribute semantics. The automatic indexes would give the spaces a semantic index, causing scroll announcements to erroneously state that there are four items visible.
ListView(
  addSemanticIndexes: false,
  semanticChildCount: 2,
  children: const <Widget>[
    IndexedSemantics(index: 0, child: Text('First')),
    Spacer(),
    IndexedSemantics(index: 1, child: Text('Second')),
    Spacer(),
  ],
)

Methods

createElement() SingleChildRenderObjectElement
RenderObjectWidgets always inflate to a RenderObjectElement subclass.
inherited
createRenderObject(BuildContext context) RenderIndexedSemantics
Creates an instance of the RenderObject class that this RenderObjectWidget represents, using the configuration described by this RenderObjectWidget.
override
debugDescribeChildren() List<DiagnosticsNode>
Returns a list of DiagnosticsNode objects describing this node's children.
@protected, inherited
debugFillProperties(DiagnosticPropertiesBuilder properties) → void
Add additional properties associated with the node.
override
didUnmountRenderObject(covariant RenderObject renderObject) → void
A render object previously associated with this widget has been removed from the tree. The given RenderObject will be of the same type as returned by this object's createRenderObject.
@protected, inherited
noSuchMethod(Invocation invocation) → dynamic
Invoked when a non-existent method or property is accessed.
inherited
toDiagnosticsNode({String? name, DiagnosticsTreeStyle? style}) DiagnosticsNode
Returns a debug representation of the object that is used by debugging tools and by DiagnosticsNode.toStringDeep.
inherited
toString({DiagnosticLevel minLevel = DiagnosticLevel.info}) String
A string representation of this object.
inherited
toStringDeep({String prefixLineOne = '', String? prefixOtherLines, DiagnosticLevel minLevel = DiagnosticLevel.debug}) String
Returns a string representation of this node and its descendants.
inherited
toStringShallow({String joiner = ', ', DiagnosticLevel minLevel = DiagnosticLevel.debug}) String
Returns a one-line detailed description of the object.
inherited
toStringShort() String
A short, textual description of this widget.
inherited
updateRenderObject(BuildContext context, covariant RenderIndexedSemantics renderObject) → void
Copies the configuration described by this RenderObjectWidget to the given RenderObject, which will be of the same type as returned by this object's createRenderObject.
