writeElement property

Element writeElement

The element that is used to write the result.

In valid code this is a LocalVariableElement, ParameterElement, or a PropertyAccessorElement setter.

In invalid code, for recovery, we might use other elements, for example a PropertyAccessorElement getter myGetter = 0 even though the getter cannot be used to write a value. We do this to help the user to navigate to the getter, and maybe add the corresponding setter.

If this node is a compound assignment, e. g. x += 2, both readElement and writeElement could be not null.

This element is null if the AST structure has not been resolved, or if the target could not be resolved.

Implementation

Element get writeElement;
