1 views.module views_access()

Determine if the logged in user has access to a view.

This function should only be called from a menu hook or some other embedded source. Each argument is the result of a call to views_plugin_access::get_access_callback() which is then used to determine if that display is accessible. If *any* argument is accessible, then the view is accessible.
