Notification class abstract

A notification that can bubble up the widget tree.

You can determine the type of a notification using the is operator to check the runtimeType of the notification.

To listen for notifications in a subtree, use a NotificationListener.

To send a notification, call dispatch on the notification you wish to send. The notification will be delivered to any NotificationListener widgets with the appropriate type parameters that are ancestors of the given BuildContext.

This example shows a NotificationListener widget that listens for ScrollNotification notifications. When a scroll event occurs in the NestedScrollView, this widget is notified. The events could be either a ScrollStartNotificationorScrollEndNotification.

To create a local project with this code sample, run:
flutter create --sample=widgets.Notification.1 mysample
