of static method

FlutterView of(
  1. BuildContext context

Returns the FlutterView that the provided context will render into.

Throws if the context is not associated with a FlutterView.

The method creates a dependency on the context, which will be informed when the identity of the FlutterView changes (i.e. the context is moved to render into a different FlutterView then before). The context will not be informed when the properties on the FlutterView itself change their values. To access the property values of a FlutterView prefer using the access methods on MediaQuery, such as MediaQuery.sizeOf, which will ensure that the context is informed when the view properties change.
