In my App I have 6 different pages. Theres 1 page called "FavouritesPage", where user pickes favourites are listed. They are displayed by a column, which uses a list from another class. The code of the list is following:

  List<Widget> favoriteContainerLists() {
    DatabaseProvider.db.queryDb();
    List<Widget> localList = [];
    if (DatabaseProvider.publicFavoriteList == null ||
        DatabaseProvider.publicFavoriteList.isEmpty) {
      localList.add(
        Column(
          crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.center,
          children: [
            Text(
              "Hier erscheinen deine Favoriten!",
              style: TextStyle(
                fontFamily: "Hind",
                fontSize: 22,
              ),
            ),
            Row(
              mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
              children: [
                Text(
                  "Makiere Bilder auf der Informationsseite mit ",
                  style: TextStyle(
                    color: Colors.indigo,
                    fontFamily: "Hind",
                    fontSize: 15,
                  ),
                ),
                Icon(
                  Icons.star_border,
                  color: Colors.orange,
                ),
              ],
            ),
            Text(
              " um sie hinzuzufügen!",
              style: TextStyle(
                color: Colors.indigo,
                fontFamily: "Hind",
                fontSize: 15,
              ),
            ),
          ],
        ),
      );
    } else {
      localList.add(Padding(
        padding: const EdgeInsets.only(bottom: 15.0),
        child: Text(
          "Deine Favoriten:",
          textAlign: TextAlign.left,
          style: TextStyle(
            fontSize: 30,
            color: Colors.indigoAccent,
            fontFamily: "Hind",
          ),
        ),
      ));
      for (var i = 0; i < DatabaseProvider.publicFavoriteList.length; i++) {
        DatabaseProvider.db.queryDb();

                                ),
                              ),
                            )
                          ],
                        ),
                      ),
                    ],
                  ),
                ),
              ),
            ),
          ),
        );
      }
    }
    return localList;
  }

The code of the page displaying it:

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    DatabaseProvider.db.queryDb();
    return SafeArea(
      child: Scaffold(
        backgroundColor: Colors.white,
        bottomNavigationBar: BottomNavigationBar(
          items: [
            BottomNavigationBarItem(
                icon: Icon(Icons.home), title: Text("Startseite")),
            BottomNavigationBarItem(
                icon: Icon(Icons.star), title: Text("Favoriten")),
            BottomNavigationBarItem(
                icon: Icon(Icons.casino), title: Text("Quiz")),
            BottomNavigationBarItem(
                icon: Icon(Icons.map), title: Text("Karte")),
          ],
          type: BottomNavigationBarType.fixed,
          unselectedItemColor: Colors.grey,
          showUnselectedLabels: true,
          currentIndex: _selectedIndex,
          selectedItemColor: Colors.blue,
          onTap: _onItemTapped,
        ),
        body: SingleChildScrollView(
          child: WillPopScope(
            onWillPop: _backButtonPressed,
            child: Padding(
              padding: const EdgeInsets.only(left: 15, right: 15, top: 8),
              child: Column(
                crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.center,
                children: AppBrain().favoriteContainerLists(),
              ),
            ),
          ),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }

They are located in 2 different classes. The class containing the list doesn't have a BuildContext and also should have non. Ideally, where it says onTap: null, at the moment I want it to be

Navigator.of(context).push(
     toInformationPage(),
                          ); 

but I know I can't use anything that requires context. Any Ideas?


Solution 1: ValdaXD

You use a GlobalKey for the navigator. There are already a lot of articles describing how to do it, here is an example


Solution 2: Kris Leland

Another option is to wrap your favoriteContainerLists in a single Widget (maybe the column that wraps it) and use a build function. So you might have something like:

class FavoriteContainerList extends StatelessWidget {
    @override
    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
      return Column(
        child: The logic from AppBrain().favoriteContainerLists() here.

This other SO answer on the difference between functions and classes convinced me to use classes for other reasons, but getting context is nice too.
