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() {
  if (create == this) {
    return 'DatabaseMode.create';
  } else if (existing == this) {
    return 'DatabaseMode.existing';
  } else if (empty == this) {
    return 'DatabaseMode.empty';
  } else if (neverFails == this) {
    return 'DatabaseMode.neverFails';
  }
  return super.toString();
}
