Parallax properties

Widget child

Main child to be displayed, the size of the background will be matched to this child.

Widget? background

The widget to be placed in the background, it will be contained in a OverflowBox and sized according to overflowWidthFactor and overflowHeightFactor.

double overflowWidthFactor

The width multiplier factor, the background will be as larger as the child multiplied by the overflowWidthFactor, increasing this value will increase the parallax effect during horizontal scroll.

Min value 1, default value 2.

double overflowHeightFactor

The height multiplier factor, the background will be as taller as the child multiplied by the overflowHeightFactor, increasing this value will increase the parallax effect during vertical scroll.

Min value 1, default value 2.

bool fixedHorizontal

If true the parallax effect will be disabled for the horizontal Axis.

Default value false.

bool fixedVertical

If true the parallax effect will be disabled for the vertical Axis.

Default value false.

bool inverted

If true the parallax effect will be inverted for both Axis.

Default value false.

Alignment alignment

Define the point where this Parallax should be centered The aligment will be relative to the parent ParallaxArea. For example if you set the Alignment.topLeft, the Background widget will be centered when the ParallaxWidget top and left will be aligned with the top and the left of the ParallaxArea parent.

default value Alignment.center.

bool clipOverflow

Define if the overflow should be clipped, if not clipped the content will overflow outside the ParallaxWidget.

Default value true.

EdgeInsets parallaxPadding

Give the parallax a general padding, used to avoid pixel bleeding if the content doesn't cover completely the viewport.

Default value EdgeInsets.zero.

bool showDebugInfo

Show some debug info like positioning on the current parallax boundary and overflows.
