Type Documentation

enum QLocation::Visibilityflags QLocation::VisibilityScope

Defines the visibility of a QPlace or QPlaceCategory.

Constant Value Description
QLocation::UnspecifiedVisibility 0x00 No explicit visibility has been defined.
QLocation::DeviceVisibility 0x01 Places and categories with DeviceVisibility are only stored on the local device.
QLocation::PrivateVisibility 0x02 Places and categories with PrivateVisibility are only visible to the current user. The data may be stored either locally or on a remote service or both.
QLocation::PublicVisibility 0x04 Places and categories with PublicVisibility are visible to everyone.

A particular manager may support one or more visibility scopes. For example a manager from one provider may only provide places that are public to everyone, whilst another may provide both public and private places.

Note: The meaning of unspecified visibility depends on the context it is used.

When saving a place or category, the default visibility is unspecified meaning that the manager chooses an appropriate visibility scope for the item.

When searching for places, unspecified means that places of any scope is returned.

The VisibilityScope type is a typedef for QFlags<Visibility>. It stores an OR combination of Visibility values.
