How to periodically set state in flutter?

Posted by Jennifer | Updated on

Want to periodically set state in flutter? As pskink and Günter mentioned, use a Timer. You can even use the periodic constructor that would fit well your scenario.

Note you don’t need the asd() function. When you call setState(), the build method will be called automatically passing the new now property value.

If you want, use initState to set an initial value and, as in this example, setup the Timer.
