The BooleanToVisibilityConverter type exposes the following members.

Public methodBooleanToVisibilityConverterInitializes a new instance of the BooleanToVisibilityConverter class.

Public methodConvertConverts a Boolean value to a Visibility enumeration value.
Public methodConvertBackConverts a Visibility enumeration value to a Boolean value.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

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.
