capture<T> static method

T capture<T>(
  1. T callback(), {
  2. void onError(
    1. Object error,
    2. Chain
  3. bool when = true,
  4. bool errorZone = true,
  5. Map<Object?, Object?>? zoneValues,

If when is true, runs callback in a Zone in which the current stack chain is tracked and automatically associated with (most) errors.

If when is false, this does not track stack chains. Instead, it's identical to runZoned, except that it wraps any errors in Chain.forTrace—which will only wrap the trace unless there's a different Chain.capture active. This makes it easy for the caller to only capture stack chains in debug mode or during development.

If onError is passed, any error in the zone that would otherwise go unhandled is passed to it, along with the Chain associated with that error. Note that if callback produces multiple unhandled errors, onError may be called more than once. If onError isn't passed, the parent Zone's unhandledErrorHandler will be called with the error and its chain.

The zone this creates will be an error zone if either onError is not null and when is false, or if both when and errorZone are true. If errorZone is false, onError must be null.

If callback returns a value, it will be returned by capture as well.

zoneValues is added to the runZoned calls.

  if (!errorZone && onError != null) {

      // some other exception. Casting null to T at least lets existing uses
      // where T is a nullable type continue to work.
