Examples

The following code example hides a button if the CTRL key is pressed when the button is clicked. This example requires that you have a Button named button1 on a Form.

private:
   void button1_Click( Object^ sender, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      /* If the CTRL key is pressed when the
         * control is clicked, hide the control. */
      if ( Control::ModifierKeys == Keys::Control )
      {
         (dynamic_cast<Control^>(sender))->Hide();
      }
   }
private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
   /* If the CTRL key is pressed when the 
      * control is clicked, hide the control. */
   if(Control.ModifierKeys == Keys.Control)
   {
      ((Control)sender).Hide();
   }
}
Private Sub button1_Click(sender As Object, _
  e As EventArgs) Handles button1.Click
   ' If the CTRL key is pressed when the 
   ' control is clicked, hide the control. 
   If Control.ModifierKeys = Keys.Control Then
      CType(sender, Control).Hide()
   End If
End Sub

Remarks

Hiding the control is equivalent to setting the Visible property to false. After the Hide method is called, the Visible property returns a value of false until the Show method is called.
