  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      title: 'Flutter Demo',
      debugShowCheckedModeBanner: false,
      theme: ThemeData(
        // This is the theme of your application.
        // Try running your application with "flutter run". You'll see the
        // application has a blue toolbar. Then, without quitting the app, try
        // changing the primarySwatch below to and then invoke
        // "hot reload" (press "r" in the console where you ran "flutter run",
        // or simply save your changes to "hot reload" in a Flutter IDE).
        // Notice that the counter didn't reset back to zero; the application
        // is not restarted.

          title: Text('Button Cick Event Example'),
        body: Center(

                        style: TextStyle(fontSize: 25.0)))),
              child: Text('Click Button '),
              onPressed: () {
                //Insert event to be fired up when button is clicked here
                //in this case, this increments our `countValue` variable by one.
                setState(() => countValue += 1);
