I think dart formatter is not working right. As an example:

controller2.animateToPage(frameworksPage, duration: const Duration(milliseconds: 480), curve: Curves.fastOutSlowIn);

formats as:

controller2.animateToPage(
                          frameworksPage,
                          duration: const Duration(
                          milliseconds: 480),
                          curve: Curves.fastOutSlowIn);

and it gets even worse when it gets to if statements. Is there a solution for this bs?


Solution 1: MindStudio

Add a , behind Curves.fastOutSlowIn and it should look a little better. Also maybe you have the maximum line length set very low so it might wrap to the next line a little to early


Solution 2: Tim Brückner

Make sure there are no syntax errors somewhere in the same file. The formatter sometimes stops working if there are syntax errors.

I tried to reproduce the problem, but the formatter worked just fine:

    final PageController controller2 = PageController(initialPage: 0);
    final frameworksPage = 1;
    controller2.animateToPage(frameworksPage,
        duration: const Duration(milliseconds: 480),
        curve: Curves.fastOutSlowIn);

However, I suggest adding a trailing comma behind the curve parameter, it leads to better alignment of braces.

    final PageController controller2 = PageController(initialPage: 0);
    final frameworksPage = 1;
    controller2.animateToPage(
      frameworksPage,
      duration: const Duration(milliseconds: 480),
      curve: Curves.fastOutSlowIn,
    );

This is my personal preference, though.
