Notes: 04. Create Custom Implicit Animations

The student materials have been reviewed and are updated as of August 2022.

The updated material uses null safety and also deploys the use of const keyword with constant constructors, use of single quotes over double quotes as per the Flutter lint rules that is used to encourage good coding practises. Also, the return value of the Tween variable is explicitly mentioned to avoids errors of passing the incompatatible Tween to TweenAnimtionBuilder.

In earlier episodes, we introduced ImplicitlyAnimatedWidgets. We saw that Flutter provides lots of these ready made widgets and all we have to do is to find the one that suits our animation needs.

    duration: const Duration(milliseconds: 500),
    tween: Tween<double>(begin: 0.0, end: progress),
    builder: (_, double value, __) {
        return Column(
            children: [
                    value: value,
                Text("${(value * 100).round()}"),
static final Tween<double> fabTween = Tween(begin: 0.0, end: 1.0);
floatingActionButton: TweenAnimationBuilder<double>(
    duration: const Duration(milliseconds: 500),
    curve: Curves.bounceOut,
    tween: fabTween,
    child: FloatingActionButton(
        onPressed: progress > 0.9

            : () {
                setState(() {

            // angle: pi*value,
