didChangeTextScaleFactor method

void didChangeTextScaleFactor ()

Called when the platform's text scale factor changes.

This typically happens as the result of the user changing system preferences, and it should affect all of the text sizes in the application.

This method exposes notifications from Window.onTextScaleFactorChanged.

class TextScaleFactorReactor extends StatefulWidget {
  const TextScaleFactorReactor({ Key key }) : super(key: key);

  @override
  _TextScaleFactorReactorState createState() => _TextScaleFactorReactorState();
}

class _TextScaleFactorReactorState extends State<TextScaleFactorReactor> with WidgetsBindingObserver {
  @override
  void initState() {
    super.initState();
    WidgetsBinding.instance.addObserver(this);
  }

  @override
  void dispose() {
    WidgetsBinding.instance.removeObserver(this);
    super.dispose();
  }

  double _lastTextScaleFactor;

  @override
  void didChangeTextScaleFactor() {
    setState(() { _lastTextScaleFactor = WidgetsBinding.instance.window.textScaleFactor; });
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Text('Current scale factor: $_lastTextScaleFactor');
  }
}
