I regularly need to query the screen size from within the application, and I know this may sound stupid but I was wondering whether reading the w,h data members of the screen struct is sufficient. Is there any reason I should store the dimensions in a separate place rather than repeatedly reading the screen.
class A
{
        int Width();
        int Height();
    private:
        SDL_Surface *screen;
};

class A
{
        const Dimension &ScreenSize();
    private:
        SDL_Surface *screen;
        Dimension screensize;
};

I ask this because I remember some issues with reading certain SDL structure's members. Thanks for your time.
