BMLTiOSLibSearchCriteria

public class BMLTiOSLibSearchCriteria : NSObject

This is a special class that is used to gather and process meeting search criteria.

The way it works, is that it gathers a search state, then creates a URI parameter list to be used by the main communication module. It does not do any communication, in itself.

It has been designed so that the search criteria are expressed as properties, instead of functions.

In order to execute searches, the user should access the instance of this class, and use it to set up search criteria. Upon completion of this, they should call the main instance’s performMeetingSearch(_:) method. The main instance will ask the Search Criteria instance to create a URI parameter list that will describe the search.

  • These are the available selection states for Search Criteria.
