Solved: How to run code after some delay in Flutter?

Question

Asked by Bradley C on March 24, 2018 (source).

I'd like to execute a function after a certain delay after my Widget is built. What's the idiomatic way of doing this in Flutter?

What I'm trying to achieve: I'd like to start with a default FlutterLogo Widget and then change its style property after some duration.

Figured it out 😎

class AnimatedFlutterLogo extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  State<StatefulWidget> createState() => new _AnimatedFlutterLogoState();
}

class _AnimatedFlutterLogoState extends State<AnimatedFlutterLogo> {
  Timer _timer;
  FlutterLogoStyle _logoStyle = FlutterLogoStyle.markOnly;

  _AnimatedFlutterLogoState() {
    _timer = new Timer(const Duration(milliseconds: 400), () {
      setState(() {
        _logoStyle = FlutterLogoStyle.horizontal;
      });
    });
  }

  @override
  void dispose() {
    super.dispose();
    _timer.cancel();
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new FlutterLogo(
      size: 200.0,
      textColor: Palette.white,
      style: _logoStyle,
    );
  }
}
