debugCheckHasTable function Null safety

bool debugCheckHasTable(
  1. BuildContext context

Asserts that the given context has a Table ancestor.

Used by TableRowInkWell to make sure that it is only used in an appropriate context.

To invoke this function, use the following pattern, typically in the relevant Widget's build method:


Always place this before any early returns, so that the invariant is checked in all cases. This prevents bugs from hiding until a particular codepath is hit.

This method can be expensive (it walks the element tree).

Does nothing if asserts are disabled. Always returns true.


bool debugCheckHasTable(BuildContext context) {
  assert(() {
    if (context.widget is! Table && context.findAncestorWidgetOfExactType<Table>() == null) {
      throw FlutterError.fromParts(<DiagnosticsNode>[
        ErrorSummary('No Table widget found.'),
        ErrorDescription('${context.widget.runtimeType} widgets require a Table widget ancestor.'),
        context.describeWidget('The specific widget that could not find a Table ancestor was'),
        context.describeOwnershipChain('The ownership chain for the affected widget is'),
    return true;
  return true;
