Control.Hide Method

Conceals the control from the user.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

'Declaration
Public Sub Hide

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.

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 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
