I am using flutter_isolate plugin and I am trying to remove an item from
SharedPreferences in an isolate. But it doesn’t seem to work. The item still exists on the main thread when i try to access it.
Below is my code to remove the item in the isolate:
SharedPreferences pref = await SharedPreferences.getInstance(); bool x = await pref.remove('image_post_data'); if (x == true) print('removed image_post_data'); // This is printed out
But when I try to access
image_post_data on the main thread, I still get the value instead of getting a null. What am I missing ?
