refresh<Created> method

Created refresh <Created>(
  1. RootProvider<Created, Object> provider
)

Forces a provider to re-evaluate its state immediately, and return the created value.

This method is useful for features like "pull to refresh" or "retry on error", to restart a specific provider.

For example, a pull-to-refresh may be implemented by combining FutureProvider and a RefreshIndicator:

final productsProvider = FutureProvider((ref) async {
  final response = await httpClient.get('https://host.com/products');
  return Products.fromJson(response.data);
});

class Example extends ConsumerWidget {
  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context, ScopedReader watch) {
    final Products products = watch(productsProvider);

    return RefreshIndicator(
      onRefresh: () => context.refresh(productsProvider),
      child: ListView(
        children: [
          for (final product in products.items) ProductItem(product: product),
        ],
      ),
    );
  }
}

Implementation

Created refresh<Created>(RootProvider<Created, Object> provider) {
  return ProviderScope.containerOf(this, listen: false).refresh(provider);
}
