Trigger FirstPage's setState method after popping Second page


I have two pages in myapp namely FirstPage and SecondPage.

Basically, FirstPage widget displays a ListView with a list of items while SecondPage widget is where I can add/delete items to the list.

I can navigate to the SecondPage by:


And also I can go back to the FirstPage by using:


My problem is I can't figure out how am I going to trigger the setState method of FirstPage widget after popping the SecondPage so that the FirstPage's ListView is updated.

I would appreciate any hint.


Whenever we <strong>push</strong>, we will get a <strong>future</strong>, we can use that future to trigger the setState

Future pushNamed = Navigator.of(context).pushNamed("/SecondPage"); pushNamed.then((_)=> setState(() {}));

Refer <a href="https://flutter.io/cookbook/navigation/returning-data/" rel="nofollow">here</a> to send data from secondScreen to firstScreen.


Use this code to send values from child View to your parent view

Widget build(BuildContext context) { return new Scaffold( appBar: new AppBar( title: new Text(widget.title), ), body: new Center( child: new FlatButton( onPressed: () { Navigator.push( context, MaterialPageRoute( builder: (context) => SecondView(callBackValue)), ); }, child: new Text('Open Child Widget'))), ); } //Your Callback Values will be received here void callBackValue(double value) { print('Value $value'); } // Your SecondPage class SecondView extends StatefulWidget{ final void Function(double data) callback; SecondView(this.callback); @override _SecondView createState() => new _SecondView(); } class _SecondView extends State<SecondView>{ @override Widget build(BuildContext context) { return new Scaffold( appBar: new AppBar( title: new Text('Child Widget'), ), body: new Center( child: new FlatButton(onPressed: (){ widget.callback(10.0); }, child: new Text('Send Value to parent')), ), ); } }


what you trying to achieve is similar to the startActivityForResult() method in Android.

This can be achieved in flutter something like this :-

in your first activity

Map map = await Navigator.of(context).push(MaterialPageRoute(builder: (context) => SecondView()); // now it will wait for the secondView to return some data //and the below code will be executed whenever the second view pops. setState((){});

Hope this was helpful.

And dont forget to write async in your method declaration for the navigation.

void _navigateToSecondActivity async { Map map = await Navigator.of(context).push(MaterialPageRoute(builder: (context) => SecondView()); setState((){}); }

Just call this function when you need to navigate to the second activity.

or on your onTap()

onTap: () async{ Map map = await Navigator.of(context).push(MaterialPageRoute(builder: (context) => SecondView()); setState((){}); }
