The argument type 'Map<String, dynamic> Function()' can't be assigned to the parameter type 'Map<String, dynamic>'


This could initially was working but after firebase update, it is now giving me this error. I have added asterisks to the part giving the error. The error message has been added beneath the code.

import 'package:cloud_firestore/cloud_firestore.dart';

class Record {
  final String name;
  final int totalVotes;
  final DocumentReference reference;

  Record.fromMap(Map<String, dynamic> map, {this.reference})
      : assert(map['name'] != null),
        assert(map['totalVotes'] != null),
        name = map['name'],
        totalVotes = map['totalVotes'];

  Record.fromSnapshot(DocumentSnapshot snapshot)
      : this.fromMap(****, reference: snapshot.reference);

  String toString() => "Record<$name:$totalVotes>";

class Voters {
  String uid;
  String voteId;
  String markedVoteOption;

The argument type ‘Map<String, dynamic> Function()’ can’t be assigned to the parameter type ‘Map<String, dynamic>’.


Try the following:

  Record.fromSnapshot(DocumentSnapshot snapshot)
      : this.fromMap(, reference: snapshot.reference);

data() is a method:

  /// Contains all the data of this [DocumentSnapshot].
  Map<String, dynamic> data() {
    return _CodecUtility.replaceDelegatesWithValueInMap(, _firestore);

that returns a Map<String, dynamic>
