enum class KVisibility (source)

Platform and version requirements: Kotlin 1.1

Visibility is an aspect of a Kotlin declaration regulating where that declaration is accessible in the source code. Visibility can be changed with one of the following modifiers: public, protected, internal, private.

Note that some Java visibilities such as package-private and protected (which also gives access to items from the same package) cannot be represented in Kotlin, so there's no KVisibility value corresponding to them.

See the Kotlin language documentation for more information.

Enum Values


Visibility of declarations marked with the public modifier, or with no modifier at all.


Visibility of declarations marked with the protected modifier.


Visibility of declarations marked with the internal modifier.


Visibility of declarations marked with the private modifier.

Inherited Properties

Returns the name of this enum constant, exactly as declared in its enum declaration.


val ordinal: Int

Returns the ordinal of this enumeration constant (its position in its enum declaration, where the initial constant is assigned an ordinal of zero).

Inherited Functions


fun clone(): Any

Throws an exception since enum constants cannot be cloned. This method prevents enum classes from inheriting from Cloneable.


fun compareTo(other: E): Int

Compares this object with the specified object for order. Returns zero if this object is equal to the specified other object, a negative number if it's less than other, or a positive number if it's greater than other.


fun equals(other: Any?): Boolean

Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this one. Implementations must fulfil the following requirements:


fun hashCode(): Int

Returns a hash code value for the object. The general contract of hashCode is:


open fun toString(): String

Returns a string representation of the object.
