Dart Code has a number of configurable settings that can be modified in your User Settings or Workspace Settings files.
- Window Scoped Settings
- Resource Scoped Settings
- Custom Colors
Window Scoped Settings
Window scoped settings must be applied in your User Settings or at the workspace level and will apply for all projects open in a window (for example,
dart.sdkPath is used to launch an analyzer that is used for the whole window).
Whether to send analytics such as startup timings, frequency of use of features and analysis server crashes. Defaults to
Whether to enable analysis for AngularDart templates (requires the angular_analyzer_plugin).
Whether to show annotations against constructor, method invocations and lists that span multiple lines. Defaults to
Whether to check you are using the latest version of the Dart SDK at startup. Defaults to
Used in Java package names and as prefix in the iOS bundle identifier.
The programming language to use for IOS apps (
The programming language to use for Android apps (
Whether to set newly connected devices as the current device in Flutter projects.
Whether to insert argument placeholders during code completions. Defaults to
The maximum length of a line of code. This is used by the document formatter. Defaults to
Whether to force all drive letters in paths to uppercase. This should reduce spurious errors from tools that are accidentally case-sensitive with Windows paths. Defaults to
Additional args to pass to
pub get and
pub upgrade commands (eg.
Whether to automatically run
pub get whenever pubspec.yaml is saved. Defaults to
An array to control when the test runner will automatically be displayed. Defaults to
Whether to prompt to get packages when opening a project with out of date packages. Defaults to
Whether to prompt to upgrade folders to Workspace Folders when projects are detected in sub-folders. Defaults to
Additional args to pass to the Dart VM when running/debugging apps.
Resource Scoped Settings
Resource scoped settings can be set in individual workspace folder settings and apply to resources within that workspace folder (for example each workspace folder could have its own
Whether SDK libraries should be marked as debuggable. Defaults to
Whether libraries should be marked as debuggable. Defaults to
Whether to evaluate getters in order to display them in debug views (such as the Variables, Watch and Hovers views). Defaults to
Whether to automatically send a ‘hot reload’ request during a Flutter debug session when saving files. Defaults to
Override the detected Flutter SDK to allow you to run from another location.
If the Dart SDK is not automatically found on your machine from your
PATH you can enter the path to it here.
If you often switch between multiple Dart SDKs, setting this option to an array of Dart SDK folders or folders that contain multiple Dart SDKs in sub-folders will allow fast switching by clicking the Dart SDK version in the status bar.
If you often switch between multiple Flutter SDKs/channels, setting this option to an array of Flutter SDK folders or folders that contain multiple Flutter SDKs in sub-folders will allow fast switching by clicking the Flutter SDK version in the status bar.
Whether to automatically execute Organize Directives when saving files. Defaults to
Whether to show the names of linter rules in the problems panel to make it easier to
// ignore:. Defaults to
Whether to show TODOs in the Problems list. Defaults to
Some colors in Dart Code can be customised using the
workbench.colourCustomizations section in settings. Supported colors are:
The color of the “closing label” annotations against constructor, method invocations and lists that span multiple lines. If not supplied, the colour for
tab.inactiveForeground will be used.
There are several settings for enabling logging of various services used by Dart Code. For more information about setting these up and troubleshooting please see Enabling Logging. Each of these settings takes a file path and the containing folder must have already been created.
This enables a low-traffic log file for basic extension and editor issues. For more information on capturing logs, see Extension Logging.
This enables very detailed logging in the analysis server that may be useful when trying to diagnose analysis server issues. For more information on capturing logs, see Analyzer Instrumentation Logging.
This enables logging of communication between Dart Code and the analysis server. Messages are truncated after a few thousand characters but this is useful to when trying to understand how Dart Code is interacting with the analysis server. For more information on capturing logs, see Analyzer Logging.
This enables logging of the
flutter daemon communication which is the service that provides information about connected devices that is used in the status bar. For more information on capturing logs, see Flutter Daemon Logging.
This enables logging of
flutter run which is used to launch Flutter applications from VS Code. This is useful when trying to diagnose issues with applications launching (or failing to) on simulators and devices. For more information on capturing logs, see Flutter Run Logging.
This enables logging of
flutter test which is used to run unit tests from VS Code. This is useful when trying to diagnose issues with unit test executions. For more information on capturing logs, see Flutter Test Logging.
This enables logging of
pub run test runs. This is useful when trying to diagnose issues with unit test executions. For more information on capturing logs, see Pub Test Logging.
This enables logging of communication between Dart Code and Observatory (the VM debugger). This is useful when trying to diagnose issues with debugging such as missed breakpoints. For more information on capturing logs, see Observatory Logging.
