A common error that occurs to every beginner flutter developer is Duplicate GlobalKey detected in widget tree. It's a panic situation. If you are looking for a solution for the error duplicate global key problem both raw flutter project or GetX library, then this post will help you get rid of this problem.

With GetX Library

Scenario: This problem occurs when you create a global key inside the controller and use it on your screen page. To solve this, make your screen page a stateful widget and create the form state global key and pass it to the controller when needed. Follow the example below.

GetX controller

class ProductCreateCtrl extends GetxController {
  void saveData({@required formKey}) async {
    //do your code


Page Screen

class ProductCreate extends StatefulWidget {
  _ProductCreateState createState() => _ProductCreateState();

class _ProductCreateState extends State<ProductCreate> {

  final ctrl = Get.put(ProductCreateCtrl());
  GlobalKey<FormState> _formKey = GlobalKey<FormState>();

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Form(
      key: _formKey,
      child: Column(
        children: <Widget>[

            child: const Text('Submit'),
            onPressed: () => _ctrl.saveData(formKey: _formKey),



With Raw/Other projects

Remove the static, final keyword from your global key and make it private inside your page widget.

class _ProductCreateState extends State<ProductCreate> {
   static final GlobalKey<FormState> formKey = GlobalKey<FormState>();

   //do this
   GlobalKey<FormState> _formKey = GlobalKey<FormState>();

    Widget build(BuildContext context) {
