Firebase.Database.Query

The Query class (and its subclass, DatabaseReference ) are used for reading data.

Summary

Listeners are attached, and they will be triggered when the corresponding data changes.

Instances of Query are obtained by calling StartAt(), EndAt(), or Limit() on a DatabaseReference.
