MediaQueryData of(
  1. BuildContext context

The data from the closest instance of this class that encloses the given context.

You can use this function to query the size and orientation of the screen, as well as other media parameters (see MediaQueryData for more examples). When that information changes, your widget will be scheduled to be rebuilt, keeping your widget up-to-date.

Typical usage is as follows:

MediaQueryData media = MediaQuery.of(context);

If there is no MediaQuery in scope, this will throw a TypeError exception in release builds, and throw a descriptive FlutterError in debug builds.
