How to change the background color of raised button dynamically in onPressed()

Issue

I have a list of Raised buttons, I want the background color of the selected button to change in its onPressed()

I tried changing the color in setState but it doesn’t do anything.

This is the function that generates the list of Buttons

List<Widget> _makeZoneList(List<Zone> zones) {
    List<Widget>Buttons = new List();
    for (int i = 0; i < zones.length; i++) {
      Buttons.add(RaisedButton(
        color: zones[i].isSelected ? AppColors.primaryColor : AppColors.white,
        onPressed: () {
          setState(() {
            if (zones[i].isSelected){
              zones[i].isSelected = false;
            }
            else{
              zones[i].isSelected = true;
            }
            print(zones[i].isSelected.toString());
          });
        },
        child: Text(zones.elementAt(i).text)
      ));
    }
    return Buttons;
  }

This is where I call the function

Widget _zoneBody() {
    return Padding(
        padding: EdgeInsets.all(32),
        child: StreamBuilder<List<Zone>>(
            stream: GetterBloc.zonesStream,
            builder: (context, snapshot) {
              if (snapshot.connectionState == ConnectionState.waiting) {
                return new Container();
              } else {
                if (snapshot.hasData) {
                     return Wrap(
                          spacing: 6.0, // gap between adjacent chips
                          children: _makeZoneList(snapshot.data));

                } else {
                  return new Container();
                }
              }
            }));
  }

When I press any button, its isSelected value changes but the background doesn’t change accordingly

Solution

Updated answer (ElevatedButton)

Since RaisedButton is now deprecated, use ElevatedButton:

enter image description here

Code:

class _MyState extends State<MyPage> {
  bool _flag = true;

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      body: Center(
        child: ElevatedButton(
          onPressed: () => setState(() => _flag = !_flag),
          child: Text(_flag ? 'Red' : 'Green'),
          style: ElevatedButton.styleFrom(
            primary: _flag ? Colors.red : Colors.teal, // This is what you need!
          ),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}

Old answer

It was difficult to implement your code because of undefined classes and variable, however I created a small example which will help you what you are looking for.

List<bool> _list = [true, false, true, false];

@override
Widget build(BuildContext context) {
  return Scaffold(
    appBar: AppBar(title: Text("Title")),
    body: ListView(children: _buildButtons()),
  );
}

List<Widget> _buildButtons() {
  List<Widget> listButtons = List.generate(_list.length, (i) {
    return RaisedButton(
      color: _list[i] ? Colors.green : Colors.red,
      onPressed: () {
        setState(() {
          _list[i] = !_list[i];
        });
      },
      child: Text("Button #${i}"),
    );
  });
  return listButtons;
}

Output:
