CustomMultiChildLayout class

A widget that uses a delegate to size and position multiple children.

The delegate can determine the layout constraints for each child and can decide where to position each child. The delegate can also determine the size of the parent, but the size of the parent cannot depend on the sizes of the children.

CustomMultiChildLayout is appropriate when there are complex relationships between the size and positioning of a multiple widgets. To control the layout of a single child, CustomSingleChildLayout is more appropriate. For simple cases, such as aligning a widget to one or another edge, the Stack widget is more appropriate.

Each child must be wrapped in a LayoutId widget to identify the widget for the delegate.

  • MultiChildLayoutDelegate, for details about how to control the layout of the children.
  • CustomSingleChildLayout, which uses a delegate to control the layout of a single child.
  • Stack, which arranges children relative to the edges of the container.
  • Flow, which provides paint-time control of its children using transform matrices.
