1. IgnorePointer Widget : IgnorePointer is a built-in widget that protects your child’s widgets from pointer events such as taps, drags, scrolls, and hovers. This widget ignores pointer events without terminating them. This widget is used to prevent unnecessary touch of UI. It is very simple just wrap your widget inside the IgnorePointer widget.
2. AbsorbPointer Widget: AbsorbPointer is a built-in widget in Flutter that absorbs pointers. The main reason this widget exists is to provide the ability to disable the interaction of its subtree widgets at once. In flutter, most widgets currently accompany an alternative to impair them.
If you have widgets below the main widget that can also receive click events, and you use IgnorePointer on the parent widget, the child widgets will still receive click events.
However, using AbsorbPointer on the main widget prevents other widgets below the main widget from receiving that click event.
If you have widgets under the main widget that can also receive click events, and you use IgnorePointer on the parent widget, the child widgets will still receive click events.
