Description

Explicitly trigger a scan.

The scan will happen asynchronously in the background, with the results being delivered by events in the technology, Efl.Net.Control or Efl.Net.Control.Access_Point associated with the technology. For example, a scan on WiFi will add and remove access points.

Try to avoid explicit scans. Rare exceptions to this rule include when the user requests them, such as entering a configuration dialog which demands a fresh state. Otherwise allow the system to perform passive scans in a timely manner.
