_scaffoldstate.currentState.showSnackBar(new SnackBar(content: new Text('Hello World')));
}
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
return new Scaffold(
/*a key is a way of refrencing an actual widget, below we are making refrence
of an object we created, it will be accessible across the entire application since
we are creating a GlobalKey*/

title: new Text('Name here'),
backgroundColor: Colors.red,
),
