What is the difference between StatelessWidget and StatefulWidget?

Posted by Jennifer | Updated on

StatelessWidget is an immutable class that acts as a blueprint for some part of the UI layout. You use it when the widget doesn’t change while displaying and, therefore, has no State.

StatefulWidget is also immutable, but it’s coupled with a State object that allows you to rebuild the widget with new values whenever calling setState(). Use StatefulWidget whenever the UI can change dynamically.
