copyWithPrevious abstract method

AsyncValue<T> copyWithPrevious(
  1. AsyncValue<T> previous,
  2. {bool isRefresh = true}

Clone an AsyncValue, merging it with previous.

When doing so, the resulting AsyncValue can contain the information about multiple state at once. For example, this allows an AsyncError to contain a value, or even AsyncLoading to contain both a value and an error.

The optional isRefresh flag (true by default) represents whether the provider rebuilt by Ref.refresh/Ref.invalidate (if true) or instead by (if false). This changes the default behavior of when and sets the isReloading/ isRefreshing flags accordingly.
