Flutter: Conflict between TextField's onTap and prefixIcon's onPressed


When the prefixicon is clicked, onTap will be called back automatically. How to ban it?

          child: TextField(
            onTap: ReplyController.to.onClickTextField,
            decoration: InputDecoration(
              prefixIcon: IconButton(
                onPressed: ReplyController.to.openEmojiField,
                color: Colors.black,
                icon: Icon(CupertinoIcons.smiley),


You can add a FocusNode to the TextField to have access whether the field is actually focused. And now if you want to ignore the onTap when textfield has focus you could modify the onTap such as onTap: !focusNode.hasFocus? ReplyController.to.onClickTextField : null
