I'm a bit confused by this because my future builder should be returning a circular progress indicator while its waiting for the future. It worked before but i've been changing things without making commits so cant check what i've changed.

The future builder:

Container(
              child: Row(
                mainAxisSize: MainAxisSize.max,
                children: <Widget>[
                  FutureBuilder(
                    future: BooruSelector(),
                    builder: (BuildContext context, AsyncSnapshot snapshot) {
                      if (snapshot.connectionState == ConnectionState.done){
                        return snapshot.data;
                      } else {
                        return Center(child: CircularProgressIndicator());
                      }
                    },
                  ),
                  FlatButton(
                    onPressed: (){
                      if(selectedBooru != null){
                        Get.to(booruEdit(selectedBooru,widget.settingsHandler));
                      }
                      //get to booru edit page;
                    },
                    child: Text("Edit"),
                  ),
                ],
             ),
            ),

The future function:

  Future BooruSelector() async{
    await widget.settingsHandler.getBooru();
    widget.settingsHandler.booruList.add(new Booru("New"," ","https://i.imgur.com/fGHg4Ul.png"," "));
    if (selectedBooru == null){
      selectedBooru = widget.settingsHandler.booruList[0];
    }
    return Container(
      child: DropdownButton<Booru>(
        value: selectedBooru,
        icon: Icon(Icons.arrow_downward),
        onChanged: (Booru newValue){
          print(newValue.baseURL);
          setState((){
            selectedBooru = newValue;
          });
        },
        items: widget.settingsHandler.booruList.map<DropdownMenuItem<Booru>>((Booru value){
          return DropdownMenuItem<Booru>(
            value: value,
            child: Row(
              children: <Widget>[
                Text(value.name),
                Image.network(value.faviconURL,),
              ],
            ),
          );
        }).toList(),
      ),
    );
  }

Expected results: A drop down menu to appear

Actual results: A big red box saying A build function returned null offending widget FutureBuilder

Solution 1: CopsOnRoad

Assuming snapshot.data returns a String, you can do something like this:

if (snapshot.connectionState == ConnectionState.done){
  return Text(snapshot.data ?? "No data"); // you need to return a widget from here. 
}
