Gets or sets a value that determines whether a FileListBox control displays files that have Hidden attributes.

Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.dll)

public bool Hidden { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if files that have the Hidden attribute will be displayed; otherwise false. The default is false.

Use this property to specify the type of files to display in a FileListBox control, based on standard Hidden file attribute used in the operating environment. Setting this property in code at run time resets the FileListBox control to display only those files that have the specified attribute.


Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic 2008. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.
