A Widget Used To Manage A List Of Messages With Pagination.


Most widgets in the Core SDK are focused on fetching a particular type of object from Stream Chat - channels, messages, users etc. The BLoC widgets bundle up the base functions used to fetch data as well as the current data fetched by the respective functions. Furthermore, the Core widgets use this BLoC to fetch new or existing data and build UI based on it.

All Core and UI widgets which focus on fetching a list of objects need to have their respective functions above them in the widget tree. The MessageSearchListCore and MessageSearchListView require the MessageSearchListCore above them in the widget hierarchy without which they will fail.

Understanding The Widget

This class can be used to load messages, perform queries, etc.

MessageSearchBloc can be accessed at anytime by using the static .of method using Flutter's BuildContext.

var _searchBloc = MessageSearchBloc.of(context);

The MessageSearchBloc widget encapsulates common functionality related to searching for messages across channels and also supplies them down the widget tree.

Here is a basic implementation of ChannelsBloc:
