proper-super-calls

added in: 1.2.0
🛠

Checks that super calls in the initState and dispose methods are called in the correct order.

Example

❌ Bad:

class _MyHomePageState<T> extends State<MyHomePage> {
int _counter = 0;


void initState() {
someWork();

super.initState(); // LINT
}


void dispose() {
super.dispose(); // LINT

someWork();
}
}

✅ Good:

class _MyHomePageState<T> extends State<MyHomePage> {
int _counter = 0;


void initState() {
super.initState();

someWork();
}


void dispose() {
someWork();

super.dispose();
}
}
