Control.Hide Method

Conceals the control from the user.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public void Hide ()
public void Hide ()
public function Hide ()
Not applicable.

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 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 void button1_Click(Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    /* If the CTRL key is pressed when the 
       control is clicked, hide the control. 
     */
    if (Control.get_ModifierKeys().Equals(Keys.Control)) {
        ((Control)sender).Hide();
    }
} //button1_Click
