`vsync` property in TabController constructor

Question

Asked by Kamil H on October 20, 2017 (source).

According to this: sample code

I created my own implementation of TabController:

void main() {
  runApp(new MyApp());
}

class MyApp extends StatefulWidget {

  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => new _MyAppState();
}

class _MyAppState extends State<MyApp> {

  TabController _tabController;

  @override
  void initState() {
    super.initState();
    _tabController = new TabController(vsync: this, length: choices.length);
  }

  @override
  void dispose() {
    _tabController.dispose();
    super.dispose();
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new MaterialApp(
      home: new Scaffold(
        bottomNavigationBar: new Material(
          color: Colors.blue,
          child: new TabBar(
            controller: _tabController,
            isScrollable: false,
            tabs: choices.map((Choice choice) {
              return new Tab(
                text: null,
                icon: new Icon(choice.icon),
              );
            }).toList(),
          ),
        ),
        appBar: new AppBar(
          title: const Text('Swap'),
        ),
        body: new TabBarView(
          controller: _tabController,
          children: choices.map((Choice choice) {
            return new Padding(
              padding: const EdgeInsets.all(16.0),
              child: new ChoiceCard(choice: choice),
            );
          }).toList(),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

In line: _tabController = new TabController(vsync: this, length: choices.length); I got error this message:

error: The argument type '_MyAppState' can't be assigned to the parameter type 'TickerProvider'. (argument_type_not_assignable at [swap] lib/main.dart:24)

What is wrong with my code?

Add with TickerProviderStateMixin to the end of your State’s class declaration.
