I'm currently working on a project which requires a listview as a child of ScrollView. I added a scroll controller in the listview and a scroll listener in the scroll controller. But the listener method is never called. It is called if I add the controller in the parent scrollview. I need the listener for listview because I have to call paginated data through api on scrolling. Here's my code :
