ListBody class

A widget that arranges its children sequentially along a given axis, forcing them to the dimension of the parent in the other axis.

This widget is rarely used directly. Instead, consider using ListView, which combines a similar layout algorithm with scrolling behavior, or Column, which gives you more flexible control over the layout of a vertical set of boxes.

See also:

  • RenderListBody, which implements this layout algorithm and the documentation for which describes some of its subtleties.
  • SingleChildScrollView, which is sometimes used with ListBody to make the contents scrollable.
  • Column and Row, which implement a more elaborate version of this layout algorithm (at the cost of being slightly less efficient).
  • ListView, which implements an efficient scrolling version of this layout algorithm.
