To prevent deprecated Flutter widgets suggestions in VS Code, you can use the Dart Analysis settings to exclude deprecated elements.
- Open the command palette in VS Code by pressing "Ctrl + Shift + P" (Windows, Linux) or "Cmd + Shift + P" (macOS).
- Type "Dart: Open Settings (JSON)" and select it from the list of options.
- In the "settings.json" file that opens up, add the following line:
"dart.analysisExcludedFolders": ["**/deprecated/"],This line will exclude any files or folders with "deprecated" in their name from analysis.
- Save the changes to the "settings.json" file.
After applying this setting, VS Code should no longer suggest deprecated Flutter widgets in your code. However, keep in mind that this may also exclude other elements that you may want to use. Therefore, you can modify the above line to exclude specific deprecated elements that you want to avoid.
