  3. Base Elements: These are the most common widgets that you'll use to build your app. It contains widgets like Text, Image, Button, DropDown, Slider, etc. You can add several of the same kind of widgets. These widgets are also suitable to use as a child or children to other parent widgets.

  4. Page Elements: These widgets can be added to any page of the app. They typically have a pre-fixed location, so you can add only one of the same type of widget on a page (for example, you can't add more than one AppBar to the same page).

  5. Form Elements: These widgets are specifically designed to create forms in your app, enabling you to display and send data values to the local database or backend. Popular widgets in this category include TextField, Dropdown, RadioButton, Form, CheckboxGroup.
