How to Call Recurring Function in Flutter Dart Repeat Method

In a programming language Recurring function means a function which calls again and again automatically after a particular time without disturbance. In flutter we can make our own recurring method using Timer.periodic() method. The Timer.periodic() methods enable us to call a function or statement after a particular given time again and again. The margin of time is the delay between each calling of statement. So in this tutorial we would learn about Example of  Call Recurring Function in Flutter Dart Repeat Method in Android iOS.

Contents in this project Example of  Call Recurring Function in Flutter Dart Repeat Method Android iOS:

1. Open your project’s main.dart file and import material.dart and dart:async package. The material package contains all the widgets in flutter and dart:async package contains the Timer class.
