VisibilityKind enumeration

VisibilityKind is an enumeration type that defines literals to determine the visibility of Elements in a model.

Enumeration literals

publicA Named Element with public visibility is visible to all elements that can access the contents of the Namespace that owns it.
privateA NamedElement with private visibility is only visible inside the Namespace that owns it.
protectedA NamedElement with protected visibility is visible to Elements that have a generalization relationship to the Namespace that owns it.
packageA NamedElement with package visibility is visible to all Elements within the nearest enclosing Package (given that other owning Elements have proper visibility). Outside the nearest enclosing Package, a NamedElement marked as having package visibility is not visible. Only NamedElements that are not owned by Packages can be marked as having package visibility.
