Modifier in Compose Foundation Layout

absolutePadding

Common

Apply additional space along each edge of the content in [Dp]: [left], [top], [right] and [bottom]. These paddings are applied without regard to the current [LayoutDirection], see [padding] to apply relative paddings. Padding is applied before content measurement and takes precedence; content may only be as large as the remaining space.

Negative padding is not permitted — it will cause [IllegalArgumentException]. See [Modifier.offset].
