Parameters

namedescription
onClickcalled when this button is clicked
modifierthe [Modifier] to be applied to this button
enabledcontrols the enabled state of this button. When false, this component will not respond to user input, and it will appear visually disabled and disabled to accessibility services.
shapedefines the shape of this button's container, border (when [border] is not null), and shadow (when using [elevation])
colors[ButtonColors] that will be used to resolve the colors for this button in different states. See [ButtonDefaults.textButtonColors].
elevation[ButtonElevation] used to resolve the elevation for this button in different states. This controls the size of the shadow below the button. Additionally, when the container color is [ColorScheme.surface], this controls the amount of primary color applied as an overlay. A TextButton typically has no elevation, and the default value is null. See [ElevatedButton] for a button with elevation.
borderthe border to draw around the container of this button
contentPaddingthe spacing values to apply internally between the container and the content
interactionSourcean optional hoisted [MutableInteractionSource] for observing and emitting [Interaction]s for this button. You can use this to change the button's appearance or preview the button in different states. Note that if null is provided, interactions will still happen internally.
