toString method Null safety

  1. @override
String toString()
override

A string representation of this object.

Some classes have a default textual representation, often paired with a static parse function (like int.parse). These classes will provide the textual representation as their string representation.

Other classes have no meaningful textual representation that a program will care about. Such classes will typically override toString to provide useful information when inspecting the object, mainly for debugging or logging.

Implementation

@override
String toString() {
  final buffer = StringBuffer();
  buffer.write('SequenceNode ');
  if (isUid) {
    buffer.write('(UID) ');
  }
  if (isEmpty) {
    buffer.write('<empty>');
  } else {
    render(buffer);
  }
  return buffer.toString();
}
