/// A data source for obtaining row data for [PaginatedDataTable] objects.
/// A data table source provides two main pieces of information:
/// * The number of rows in the data table ([rowCount]).
/// * The data for each row (indexed from `0` to `rowCount - 1`).
/// It also provides a listener API ([addListener]/[removeListener]) so that
/// consumers of the data can be notified when it changes. When the data
/// changes, call [notifyListeners] to send the notifications.
/// DataTableSource objects are expected to be long-lived, not recreated with
/// each build.
abstract class DataTableSource extends ChangeNotifier {
/// Called to obtain the data about a particular row.
/// The [DataRow.byIndex] constructor provides a convenient way to construct
/// [DataRow] objects for this callback's purposes without having to worry about
/// independently keying each row.
/// If the given index does not correspond to a row, or if no data is yet
/// available for a row, then return null. The row will be left blank and a
/// loading indicator will be displayed over the table. Once data is available
/// or once it is firmly established that the row index in question is beyond
/// the end of the table, call [notifyListeners].
/// Data returned from this method must be consistent for the lifetime of the
/// object. If the row count changes, then a new delegate must be provided.
DataRow? getRow(int index);
/// Called to obtain the number of rows to tell the user are available.
/// If [isRowCountApproximate] is false, then this must be an accurate number,
/// and [getRow] must return a non-null value for all indices in the range 0
/// to one less than the row count.
/// If [isRowCountApproximate] is true, then the user will be allowed to
/// attempt to display rows up to this [rowCount], and the display will
/// indicate that the count is approximate. The row count should therefore be
/// greater than the actual number of rows if at all possible.
/// If the row count changes, call [notifyListeners].
