Retrieve the Value of the TextField in Flutter
The text field is widely used in Android Applications for taking user input, using TextEditingController we can retrieve the data from the text field.
A sample video gives you an idea of what we are going to do in this article.
Step By Step Implementation
Step 1: Create a New Project in Android Studio
To set up Flutter Development on Android Studio please refer to Android Studio Setup for Flutter Development, and then create a new project in Android Studio please refer to Creating a Simple Application in Flutter.
Step 2: Creating the TextEditingController
Using TextEditingController we can retrieve the data from the text fields.
// Create a text controller and use it to retrieve the current value of the TextField. final myController = TextEditingController();
TextField has a property controller, that allows assigning a TextEditingController, which means passing the TextEditingController to the controller of the TextField that we created in the previous step.
TextField( controller: myController, //myController is the TextEditingController ),
