A widget that follows a CompositedTransformTarget.

When this widget is composited during the compositing phase (which comes after the paint phase, as described in WidgetsBinding.drawFrame), it applies a transformation that causes it to provide its child with a coordinate space that matches that of the linked CompositedTransformTarget widget, offset by offset.

The LayerLink object used as the link must be the same object as that provided to the matching CompositedTransformTarget.

The CompositedTransformTarget must come earlier in the paint order than this CompositedTransformFollower.

Hit testing on descendants of this widget will only work if the target position is within the box that this widget's parent considers to be hitable. If the parent covers the screen, this is trivially achievable, so this widget is usually used as the root of an OverlayEntry in an app-wide Overlay (e.g. as created by the MaterialApp widget's Navigator).
