Public functions

AddChildListener

void AddChildListener(
  ChildListener *listener
)

Adds a listener that will be called any time a child is added, removed, modified, or reordered.

Details
Parameters
listener
A ChildListener instance, which must remain in memory until you remove the listener from the Query.

AddValueListener

void AddValueListener(
  ValueListener *listener
)

Adds a listener that will be called immediately and then again any time the data changes.

Details
Parameters
listener
A ValueListener instance, which must remain in memory until you remove the listener from the Query.

EndAt

Query EndAt(
  Variant order_value
)

Get a Query constrained to nodes with the given sort value or lower.

This method is used to generate a reference to a limited view of the data at this location. The Query returned will only refer to child nodes with a value less than or equal to the given value, using the given OrderBy directive (or priority as default).

Details
Parameters
order_value
The highest sort value the Query should refer to.
Returns
A Query in this same location, filtering out child nodes that have a higher sort value or key than the sort value or key specified.

EndAt

Query EndAt(
  Variant order_value,
  const char *child_key
)

Get a Query constrained to nodes with the given sort value or lower, and the given key or lower.

This method is used to generate a reference to a limited view of the data at this location. The Query returned will only refer to child nodes with a value less than or equal to the given value, using the given OrderBy directive (or priority as default), and additionally only child nodes with a key less than or equal to the given key.

Details
Parameters
order_value
The highest sort value the Query should include.
child_key
The highest key the Query should include.
Returns
A Query in this same location, filtering out child nodes that have a higher sort value than the sort value specified, or a higher key than the key specified.

EqualTo

Query EqualTo(
  Variant order_value
)

Get a Query constrained to nodes with the exact given sort value.

This method is used to create a query constrained to only return child nodes with the given value, using the given OrderBy directive (or priority as default).

Details
Parameters
order_value
The exact sort value the Query should include.
Returns
A Query in this same location, filtering out child nodes that have a different sort value than the sort value specified.

EqualTo

Query EqualTo(
  Variant order_value,
  const char *child_key
)

Get a Query constrained to nodes with the exact given sort value, and the exact given key.

This method is used to create a query constrained to only return the child node with the given value, using the given OrderBy directive (or priority as default), and the given key. Note that there is at most one such child as child key names are unique.

Details
Parameters
order_value
The exact sort value the Query should include.
child_key
The exact key the Query should include.
Returns
A Query in this same location, filtering out child nodes that have a different sort value than the sort value specified, and containing at most one child with the exact key specified.

GetReference

DatabaseReference GetReference() const 

Gets a DatabaseReference corresponding to the given location.

Details
Returns
A DatabaseReference corresponding to the same location as the Query, but without any of the ordering or filtering parameters.

GetValue

Future< DataSnapshot > GetValue()

Gets the value of the query for the given location a single time.

This is an asynchronous operation which takes time to execute, and uses firebase::Future to return its result.

Details
Returns
A Future result, which will complete when the operation either succeeds or fails. On this Future's completion, if its Error is kErrorNone, the operation succeeded, and the DataSnapshot contains the data in this location.

GetValueLastResult

Future< DataSnapshot > GetValueLastResult()

Gets the result of the most recent call to GetValue().

Details
Returns
Result of the most recent call to GetValue().

IsValid

virtual FIREBASE_DEPRECATED bool IsValid() const 

Returns true if this query is valid, false if it is not valid.

An invalid query could be returned by, say, attempting to OrderBy two different items, or calling OrderByChild() with an empty path. If a Query is invalid, attempting to add more constraints will also result in an invalid Query.

Deprecated. Renamed to is_valid().

Details
Returns
true if this query is valid, false if this query is invalid.

LimitToFirst

Query LimitToFirst(
  size_t limit
)

Gets a Query limited to only the first results.

Limits the query to reference only the first N child nodes, using the given OrderBy directive (or priority as default).

Details
Parameters

Returns
A Query in this same location, limited to the specified number of children (taken from the beginning of the sorted list).

LimitToLast

Query LimitToLast(
  size_t limit
)

Gets a Query limited to only the last results.

Details
Parameters
limit
Number of children to limit the Query to.
Returns
A Query in this same location, limited to the specified number of children (taken from the end of the sorted list).

OrderByChild

Get a Query constrained to nodes with the given sort value or higher, and the given key or higher.

This method is used to generate a reference to a limited view of the data at this location.
