An optional container for grouping together multiple form field widgets (e.g. TextField widgets).

Each individual form field should be wrapped in a FormField widget, with the Form widget as a common ancestor of all of those. Call methods on FormState to save, reset, or validate each FormField that is a descendant of this Form. To obtain the FormState, you may use Form.of with a context whose ancestor is the Form, or pass a GlobalKey to the Form constructor and call GlobalKey.currentState.
