Methods

clear() → void
Clear all subscribers from the cache.
emit(String event, [Object? sender, Object? data]) → void
API to emit events. event is a required parameter. If sender information is sent, it will be used to intimate user about it. event - What event needs to be emitted. sender - The sender who published the event. Ignore if not required. data - Data the event need to carry. Ignore this argument if no data needs to be sent.
getListenersCount(String event) int
Get the list of subscribers for a particular event.
noSuchMethod(Invocation invocation) → dynamic
Invoked when a non-existent method or property is accessed. [...]
inherited
off(Listener? listener) → void
Remove event listener from emitter. This will unsubscribe the caller from the emitter from any future events. Listener should be a valid instance. listener - Listener instance to be removed from the event subscription.
on(String event, Object? context, EventCallback callback) Listener
API to register for notification. It is mandatory to pass event name and callback parameters. event - Event name used for the subscription. A valid event name is mandatory. context - Context information, which need to be sent in all emitted events. callback - EventCallback function registered to receive events emitted from the publisher.

removeAllByEvent(String event) → void
Use this mechanism to remove all subscription for a particular event. Caution : This will remove all the listeners from multiple files or classes or modules. Think twice before calling this API and make sure you know what you are doing!!! event - Event name used during subscription.
removeListener(String eventName, EventCallback callback) → void
