Usage

For detailed use, see the example.

Fetch Default (English)

    List<Country> countries;
    try {
      countries = await IsoCountries.iso_countries;
    } on PlatformException {
      countries = null;
    }

Fetch based on Language


    List<Country> countries;
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      // If you need country names in a specific language please pass language code sample
      // fr-fr, en-en, de-de... IMPORTANT: In Android there seem to be some issue with case
      // so passing fr-FR wont work
      countries = await IsoCountries.iso_countries_for_locale("fr-fr");
    } on PlatformException {
      countries = null;
    }
    

Usage in Widget as function

  // Platform messages are asynchronous, so we initialize in an async method.
  Future<void> prepareDefaultCountries() async {
    List<Country> countries;
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      countries = await IsoCountries.iso_countries;
    } on PlatformException {
      countries = null;
    }
    // If the widget was removed from the tree while the asynchronous platform
    // message was in flight, we want to discard the reply rather than calling
    // setState to update our non-existent appearance.
    if (!mounted) return;

    setState(() {
      countryList = countries;
    });
  }

  // Platform messages are asynchronous, so we initialize in an async method.
  Future<void> prepareLocaleSpecificCountries() async {
    List<Country> countries;
    // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
    try {
      // If you need country names in a specific language please pass language code sample
      // fr-fr, en-en, de-de... IMPORTANT: In Android there seem to be some issue with case
      // so passing fr-FR wont work
      countries = await IsoCountries.iso_countries_for_locale("fr-fr");
    } on PlatformException {
      countries = null;
    }
    // If the widget was removed from the tree while the asynchronous platform
    // message was in flight, we want to discard the reply rather than calling
    // setState to update our non-existent appearance.
    if (!mounted) return;

    setState(() {
      countryList = countries;
    });
  }
  

New API Added

Passing in a country code( 2 letter) and an optional localeIdentifier( eg 'de-de', 'fr-fr'), you can get a country object with a translated name.

    // Platform messages are asynchronous, so we initialize in an async method.
    // IMPORTANT: Make sure the country code passed in is valid, in Android passing
    // in a wrong country code, returns the country name as passed in country code not sure why.
    Future<void> getCountryForCodeWithIdentifier(
        String code, String localeIdentifier) async {
      // Platform messages may fail, so we use a try/catch PlatformException.
      try {
        country = await IsoCountries.iso_country_for_code_for_locale(code,
            locale_identifier: localeIdentifier);
      } on PlatformException {
        country = null;
      }
      // If the widget was removed from the tree while the asynchronous platform
      // message was in flight, we want to discard the reply rather than calling
      // setState to update our non-existent appearance.
      if (!mounted) return;

      setState(() {
        print(country.name);
      });
    }
