bp_xprofile_get_hidden_field_types_for_user( int $displayed_user_id, int $current_user_id )

Get the visibility levels that should be hidden for this user pair.


Field visibility is determined based on the relationship between the logged-in user, the displayed user, and the visibility setting for the current field. (See bp_xprofile_get_hidden_fields_for_user().) This utility function speeds up this matching by fetching the visibility levels that should be hidden for the current user pair.
