pop<T extends Object?> method Null safety

  1. @optionalTypeArgs
void pop<T extends Object?>(
  1. BuildContext context,
  2. [T? result]
)

Pop the top-most route off the navigator that most tightly encloses the given context.

The current route's Route.didPop method is called first. If that method returns false, then the route remains in the Navigator's history (the route is expected to have popped some internal state; see e.g. LocalHistoryRoute). Otherwise, the rest of this description applies.

If non-null, result will be used as the result of the route that is popped; the future that had been returned from pushing the popped route will complete with result. Routes such as dialogs or popup menus typically use this mechanism to return the value selected by the user to the widget that created their route. The type of result, if provided, must match the type argument of the class of the popped route (T).

The popped route and the route below it are notified (see Route.didPop, Route.didComplete, and Route.didPopNext). If the Navigator has any Navigator.observers, they will be notified as well (see NavigatorObserver.didPop).

The T type argument is the type of the return value of the popped route.

The type of result, if provided, must match the type argument of the class of the popped route (T).

Typical usage for closing a route is as follows:
void _close() {
  Navigator.pop(context);
}

A dialog box might be closed with a result:

void _accept() {
  Navigator.pop(context, true); // dialog returns true
}

Implementation

@optionalTypeArgs
static void pop<T extends Object?>(BuildContext context, [ T? result ]) {
  Navigator.of(context).pop<T>(result);
}
