Use the BooleanToVisibilityConverter class to convert a Boolean to and from a Visibility value. The Convert method returns Visibility.Visible when true is passed in or Visibility.Collapsed when false is passed in. Note that the Visibility.Collapsed value hides the control and does not reserve space for it in a layout. When you call the ConvertBack method and specify a reference to an object, it returns true if the object is Visible; otherwise, it returns false.
