StateProvider<State> class Null safety

A provider that expose a value which can be modified from outside.

It can be useful for very simple states, like a filter or the currently selected item – which can then be combined with other providers or accessed in multiple screens.

The following code shows a list of products, and allows selecting a product by tapping on it.

final selectedProductIdProvider = StateProvider<String?>((ref) => null);
final productsProvider = StateNotifierProvider<ProductsNotifier, List<Product>>((ref) => ProductsNotifier());

Widget build(BuildContext context, WidgetRef ref) {
  final List<Product> products =;
  final selectedProductId =;

  return ListView(
    children: [
      for (final product in products)
          onTap: () => =,
          child: ProductItem(
            product: product,
            isSelected: selectedProductId.state ==,
