33 Flutter: Using SnackBar

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';

void main(){
  runApp(new MaterialApp(
    home: new MyApp(),

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {
  _State createState() => new _State();

//State is information of the application that can change over time or when some actions are taken.
class _State extends State<MyApp>{

  final GlobalKey<ScaffoldState> _scaffoldstate = new GlobalKey<ScaffoldState>();

  void _showBar(){
    _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*/
      key: _scaffoldstate,
      appBar: new AppBar(
        title: new Text('Name here'),
        backgroundColor: Colors.red,
      //hit Ctrl+space in intellij to know what are the options you can use in flutter widgets
      body: new Container(
        padding: new EdgeInsets.all(32.0),
        child: new Center(
          child: new Column(
            children: <Widget>[
              new Text('Add widgets here'),
              new RaisedButton(onPressed: _showBar, child: new Text('Click me'),)
