@private in the API source code?
…does it mean the property/method is private to the component/class and should only be used internally by that component/class?
Or does it mean that the property/method is private to the framework and should only be used internally by the framework?
Another way to put this question is: Can someone explain/clarify to me the difference between public/private methods/properties, and public/private API. (…are they both essentially the same thing?)
I trying to figure out when I should make my own methods/properties private or public and why it matters (haven’t really given it too much thought before now)
