SliverReorderableListState of(
  1. BuildContext context

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

This method is typically used by SliverReorderableList item widgets to start or cancel an item drag operation.

If no SliverReorderableList surrounds the context given, this function will assert in debug mode and throw an exception in release mode.

This method can be expensive (it walks the element tree).
