Visible Property

Control.Visible Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether a server control is rendered as UI on the page.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public virtual bool Visible { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the control is visible on the page; otherwise false.

If this property is false, the server control is not rendered. You should take this into account when organizing the layout of your page.


If a container control is not rendered, any controls that it contains will not be rendered even if you set the Visible property of an individual control to true. In that case, the individual control returns false for the Visible property even if you have explicitly set it to true. (That is, if the Visible property of the parent control is set to false, the child control inherits that setting and the setting takes precedence over any local setting.)
