The argument type 'GeneratedIntColumn' can't be assigned to the parameter type 'int': Moor-Flutter

Issue

I am trying to set a foreign key relationship with Moor-Flutter when joining two tables and I get the error below in VS Code;

The argument type ‘GeneratedIntColumn’ can’t be assigned to the parameter type ‘int’.

At first I thought it is because I am using an auto increment field as a foreign key but now I am not so sure because I still get the error when I change the code.

Here is my code. The error happens on the join statement when comparing; tasks.id.equals(categories.taskId).

import 'package:moor/moor.dart';
import 'package:moor_flutter/moor_flutter.dart';

part 'moor_database.g.dart';

@DataClassName("Category")
class Categories extends Table {
  IntColumn get id => integer().autoIncrement()();
  IntColumn get taskId =>
      integer().nullable().customConstraint('NULL REFERENCES tasks(id)')();
  TextColumn get name => text().withLength(min: 1, max: 100)();
  TextColumn get icon => text()();
  TextColumn get color => text()();
}

class Tasks extends Table {
  IntColumn get id => integer().autoIncrement()();
  TextColumn get name => text().withLength(min: 1, max: 200)();
  BoolColumn get completed => boolean().withDefault(Constant(false))();
}

@UseMoor(tables: [Categories, Tasks], daos: [CategoryDao])
class AppDatabase extends _$AppDatabase {
  AppDatabase()
      : super((FlutterQueryExecutor.inDatabaseFolder(
          path: 'todo.sqlite',
          logStatements: true,
        )));

  @override
  int get schemaVersion => 1;

  @override
  MigrationStrategy get migration =>
      MigrationStrategy(beforeOpen: (details) async {
        await customStatement('PRAGMA foreign_keys = ON');
      });
}

class CategoryWithTask {
  final Category category;
  final Task task;

  CategoryWithTask({@required this.category, @required this.task});
}

@UseDao(tables: [Categories, Tasks])
class CategoryDao extends DatabaseAccessor<AppDatabase>
    with _$CategoryDaoMixin {
  final AppDatabase db;

  CategoryDao(this.db) : super(db);
  Stream<List<CategoryWithTask>> watchAllCategories() {
    return (select(categories)
          ..orderBy(([
            (c) => OrderingTerm(expression: c.name),
          ])))
        .join([leftOuterJoin(tasks, tasks.id.equals(categories.taskId))])
        .watch()
        .map((rows) => rows.map((row) {
              return CategoryWithTask(
                  category: row.readTable(categories),
                  task: row.readTable(tasks));
            }));
  }
}

Solution

I have realized my mistake by looking at the code example from https://resocoder.com/2019/07/17/moor-room-for-flutter-3-foreign-keys-joins-migrations-fluent-sqlite-database/

Instead of tasks.id.equals(categories.taskId)

The expression in the join should be tasks.id.equalsExp(categories.taskId)
