ShaderMask class Null safety

A widget that applies a mask generated by a Shader to its child.

For example, ShaderMask can be used to gradually fade out the edge of a child by using a ui.Gradient.linear mask.

This example makes the text look like it is on fire:
ShaderMask(
  shaderCallback: (Rect bounds) {
    return RadialGradient(
      center: Alignment.topLeft,
      radius: 1.0,
      colors: <Color>[Colors.yellow, Colors.deepOrange.shade900],
      tileMode: TileMode.mirror,
    ).createShader(bounds);
  },
  child: const Text('I’m burning the memories'),
)

See also:

  • Opacity, which can apply a uniform alpha effect to its child.
  • CustomPaint, which lets you draw directly on the canvas.
  • DecoratedBox, for another approach at decorating child widgets.
  • BackdropFilter, which applies an image filter to the background.

Methods

createElement() SingleChildRenderObjectElement
RenderObjectWidgets always inflate to a RenderObjectElement subclass.
inherited
createRenderObject(BuildContext context) RenderShaderMask
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.
inherited
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 RenderShaderMask 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.
