|Short Description||An attribute of the global elements to determine accessibility|
|Specified by||ISO 13209-2|
The visibility attribute determines whether global elements can be used in other documents or not. These global elements are:
- Global constants
- Context variables
- State variables
There are the three levels of visibility as follows:
The corresponding element can only be used within the same document. It is, therefore, invisible to other OTX documents.
The corresponding element can only be used in the documents within the same package. It is, therefore, invisible to OTX documents outside the current package.
The corresponding element can be used by all of the documents. Therefore, it is visible to all OTX documents.
Global variables always have the visibility private, i.e. they can not be used in other documents!
