Control.Visible Control.Visible Control.Visible Control.Visible Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether a server control is rendered as UI on the page.

public:
 virtual property bool Visible { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
[System.ComponentModel.Bindable(true)]
public virtual bool Visible { get; set; }
member this.Visible : bool with get, set
Public Overridable Property Visible As Boolean

Property Value

true if the control is visible on the page; otherwise false.

Remarks

If this property is false, the server control is not rendered. You should take this into account when organizing the layout of your page.

Note

If a container control is not rendered, any controls that it contains will not be rendered even if you set the Visible property of an individual control to true. In that case, the individual control returns false for the Visible property even if you have explicitly set it to true. (That is, if the Visible property of the parent control is set to false, the child control inherits that setting and the setting takes precedence over any local setting.)
