Show or hide an object on the artboard

The column under Hide all/Show all Cc295144.3df73f86-a06e-4df8-b696-261c23fac3cc(en-us,Expression.40).png indicates the visibility of an object on the artboard. When the eye button is visible in the row that corresponds to an object, the object and all its child objects are visible on the artboard.

NoteNote

Hide/Show applies only to the view of your object on the artboard in Microsoft Expression Blend. Hide/Show does not affect the visibility of your object when you run your application. For more information, see Show or hide an object in your application.

NoteNote

You can modify an object on the artboard when it is hidden, but you will not be able to see your changes reflected on the artboard until the object is visible again.
