Gets or sets a value indicating whether the Web Part is displayed on a Web page.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages
Assembly:  Microsoft.SharePoint (in Microsoft.SharePoint.dll)


<WebPartStorageAttribute(Storage.None)> _
Public Overrides Property Hidden As Boolean
Dim instance As WebPart
Dim value As Boolean

value = instance.Hidden

instance.Hidden = value
public override bool Hidden { get; set; }

Property value

Type: System.Boolean
false if the Web Part is displayed on a Web page; otherwise, true. The default value is false.


The Hidden property is ignored for static Web Parts (Web Parts not in a zone). To hide a static Web Part, you can do one of the following:

  • Use the IsVisible property, which renders the Web Part but prevents it from being displayed.

  • Use the underlying Control.Visible property to prevent the control from being rendered to the client.
