Error.invalidOperation Function

(Debug) An attempt was made to set the visible property value after the Control object's Sys.UI.Control.dispose method was invoked.

If no value is specified, the default behavior is for the element to be displayed on the page. If the visible property is set to false, the control will be hidden. It will occupy space on the page depending on the value of the visibilityMode property.
