DataControlField.Visible Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether a data control field is rendered.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public bool Visible { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_Visible ()

/** @property */
public void set_Visible (boolean value)

public function get Visible () : boolean

public function set Visible (value : boolean)

Not applicable.

Property Value

true if the DataControlField is rendered; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

Use the Visible property to show or hide DataControlField objects in a data-bound control.

If the the Visible property is false, the data values are not displayed and do not make a round-trip to the client. If you want to round-trip the data for a field that is not visible, add the field name to the DataKeyNames property of the data-bound control.

The following code example demonstrates how to use BoundField and ButtonField objects, which are derived from DataControlField, to display rows in a DetailsView control. The Visible property of the BoundField object that displays the EmployeeID column is set to false, and the column is not rendered by the DetailsView control.
