changedExternalState method

  1. @protected
  2. @mustCallSuper
void changedExternalState ()
@mustCallSuper, @protected, inherited

Called whenever the Navigator has its widget rebuilt, to indicate that the route may wish to rebuild as well.

This is called by the Navigator whenever the NavigatorState's widget changes, for example because the MaterialApp has been rebuilt. This ensures that routes that directly refer to the state of the widget that built the MaterialApp will be notified when that widget rebuilds, since it would otherwise be difficult to notify the routes that state they depend on may have changed.
