1. Open your flutter project’s main.dart file and import material.dart package.

2. Creating void main runApp() method and here we would call our main Root parent class MyApp.

3. Creating our main parent class MyApp extends StatelessWidget. This is the state less class. In this class we cannot use State. This class is just the base of our application. Here we would call SampleWidget(), which is our next class.

4. Creating another class named as SampleWidget extends StatefulWidget. From now on we can use State in our given class tree. But the code is not over yet. We have to make another class named as SampleStateWidget extends State<State Parent Class Name> with createState() method. This method would allow mutable state management in given class tree and from now on we can use State in next class. The createState() method called by flutter framework which would create State object in given class tree.

5. Creating our main State class named as class SampleStateWidget extends State<SampleWidget>. After extending our class to State we can use State methods in our current class.

6. Creating 3 String variables, two of them has their own values assigned and third variable has empty value.

7. Now we would make a function named as add(), Inside the function we would call the setState(() {}) method and update the third variable value with A and B variable. The main benefit of using state in flutter is you don’t have to personally create state variables, Just use the setState(() {}) method and it’ll convert the current variable as State.

8. Creating Widget Build Area -> Center widget -> Column widget -> Here we would make a Text widget and using the $+Variable_Name method we would display the variable value like on app screen. We would also make a Raised Button widget to call the add() method on button click event.
