From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki

This checks if an element is visible to a player. This does not check if the player can literally see the element, just that they are aware that it exists. Some so-called per-player elements are able to be visible only to some players, as such this checks if this is the case for a particular element/player combination.


bool isElementVisibleTo ( element theElement, element visibleTo )          

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!
