Flutter TypeAhead Issue

Issue

I am trying to implement the Flutter Typeahead based on the following link:
Flutter TypeAhead

 class _CallAddState extends State<CallAdd> {

     final GlobalKey<FormState> _formKey = GlobalKey<FormState>();
     final TextEditingController _typeAheadController = TextEditingController();

    var SerVerConfig = [
    {
     "name":"Mike",
      "id":"1"
    },
    {
      "name":"Bill",
      "id":"2"
    },
    {
      "name":"Juan",
      "id":"3"
    },

  ];

   @override
   Widget build(BuildContext context) {
       return Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(
          title: Text(widget.title),
        ),
        body: Form(
          key: this._formKey,
          child: Padding(
            padding: EdgeInsets.all(32.0),
            child: Column(
              children: <Widget>[
                TypeAheadField(
                  textFieldConfiguration: TextFieldConfiguration(
                      autofocus: true,
                      style: DefaultTextStyle.of(context)
                          .style
                          .copyWith(fontStyle: FontStyle.italic),
                      decoration:
                          InputDecoration(border: OutlineInputBorder())),
                  suggestionsCallback: (pattern) async {
                    return SerVerConfig;
                  },
                  itemBuilder: (context, suggestion) {
                    print("item builder " + suggestion);
                    return ListTile(
                      leading: Icon(Icons.shopping_cart),
                      title: Text(suggestion['name']),
//                      subtitle: Text('\$${suggestion['id']}'),
                    );
                  },
                  onSuggestionSelected: (suggestion) {
                    Navigator.of(context).push(MaterialPageRoute(
                        //  builder: (context) => ProductPage(product: suggestion)
                        ));
                  },
                )
              ],
            ),
          ),
        ));
    }
    }

Unfortunately, I am getting an error with the following message in the suggestionsCallback function.
“type ‘_InternalLinkedHashMap’ is not a subtype of type ‘String’

Any help or advice is much appreciated.
Thanks.

Solution

SerVerConfig use List, you can compare difference
You can see full code and demo picture (Example 2: Form)

code snippet

 List SerVerConfig = [
    {"name": "Mike", "id": "1"},
    {"name": "Bill", "id": "2"},
    {"name": "Juan", "id": "3"},
  ];

TypeAheadField(
              textFieldConfiguration: TextFieldConfiguration(
                  autofocus: true,
                  style: DefaultTextStyle.of(context)
                      .style
                      .copyWith(fontStyle: FontStyle.italic),
                  decoration: InputDecoration(border: OutlineInputBorder())),
              suggestionsCallback: (pattern) async {
                return SerVerConfig;
              },
              itemBuilder: (context, suggestion) {
                return ListTile(
                  leading: Icon(Icons.shopping_cart),
                  title: Text(suggestion['name']),
//                      subtitle: Text('\$${suggestion['id']}'),
                );
              },
              onSuggestionSelected: (suggestion) {
                Navigator.of(context).push(MaterialPageRoute(
                    builder: (context) => ProductPage(product: suggestion)));
