Why can't I access my variable in the widget?



I’m learning flutter. I’m beginner in flutter.
I’m progressing by watching the video. At now, I’m learning the stateful widget. I identified a name variable in the stateful widget then I wanna access that name variable in the widget like this
Text("${Widget.name} count : $counter"),. But I got this error "The getter ‘name’ isn’t defined for the type ‘Widget’." How can I solve this problem?

class Counter extends StatefulWidget {

  final String name ;

  _CounterState createState() => _CounterState();

class _CounterState extends State<Counter> {
  int counter = 0;
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(),
        body: Text("${Widget.name} count : $counter"),



There is just typo error, you need to use widget.variableName.

On your snippet Widget.name will be widget.name.

Text("${widget.name} count : $counter"),
