A widget that applies a transformation before painting its child.

Sample code

This example rotates and skews an orange box containing text, keeping the top right corner pinned to its original position.

new Container(
  color: Colors.black,
  child: new Transform(
    alignment: FractionalOffset.topRight,
    transform: new Matrix4.skewY(0.3)..rotateZ(-math.PI / 12.0),
    child: new Container(
      padding: const EdgeInsets.all(8.0),
      color: const Color(0xFFE8581C),
      child: const Text('Apartment for rent!'),

  • RotatedBox, which rotates the child widget during layout, not just during painting.
  • FittedBox, which sizes and positions its child widget to fit the parent according to a given BoxFit discipline.
