[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public override bool Visible { get; set; }

The row is in a DataGridView control and is a shared row.

Use this property to hide a row from view while keeping the row in the DataGridView. To completely remove a row, use the DataGridViewRowCollection.Remove method.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DataGridViewBand.Visible property, which is nearly identical to the Visible property of the DataGridViewRow class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewBand class.


// Hide a band of cells.
private void Button6_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{

    DataGridViewBand band = dataGridView.Rows[3];
    band.Visible = false;
}
