Class 'Future<dynamic>' has no instance getter 'key'

Issue

I am creating a project where I want to create a list of students and store it and then edit or delete whenever required. I am locally storing data and using sqlite. But while running the project I receive following error:
Class ‘Future’ has no instance getter ‘key’.
Receiver: Instance of ‘Future’
Tried calling: key
Getting error in if (studentList==null)
E/flutter (11424): [ERROR:flutter/lib/ui/ui_dart_state.cc(198)] Unhandled Exception: LateInitializationError: Field ‘studentList’ has not been initialized.

class StudentList extends StatefulWidget {
  final String? streenTitle;

  StudentList(this.streenTitle);
  State<StatefulWidget> createState() {
    return StudentState();
  }
}

class StudentState extends State<StudentList> {
  SQL_Helper? helper = SQL_Helper();
  late List<Student> studentList;
  int connt = 0;

  build(BuildContext context) async {
    **if (studentList==null) {**
      studentList = await <Student>[];
    }

    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text("Students"),
      ),
      body: getStudentsList(),
      floatingActionButton: FloatingActionButton(onPressed: () {
        NavigatorToStudend("Add New Studend");
      }),
    );
  }

  ListView getStudentsList() {
    return ListView.builder(
        itemCount: connt,
        itemBuilder: (BuildContext context, int pos) {
          return Card(
            color: Colors.red,
            elevation: 2.0,
            child: ListTile(

              ),
              title: Text(this.studentList[pos].name),
              subtitle: Text(this.studentList[pos].description +

              onTap: () {

              },
            ),
          );
        });
  }

  Color isPassed(int value) {
    switch (value) {

        return Colors.amber;
        break;
      case 2:

  void NavigatorToStudend(String appTitle) {

void _delete(BuildContext context, Student student) async {
  

  int result = await SQL_Helper.helper!.deleteStudent(student.id);
  if (result != 0) {

}

void _showSenchBar(BuildContext context, String mag) async {
  final snackBar = await SnackBar(content: Text(mag));
  Scaffold.of(context).showSnackBar(snackBar);

//void NavigatorToStudend(String s) {}

Solution

There’s a few issues with your code. For starters:
late List<Student> studentList; isn’t nullable, so checking if (studentList==null) { will always be false. There’s a few typos and code errors too (such as your build method not having an @override decorator. I highly suggest using an IDE (like Android Studio) if you aren’t already.

If studentList is always going to be awaiting something, I suggest using a FutureBuilder
