DataGridViewRow.Visible Property


Gets or sets a value indicating whether the row is visible.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public override bool Visible { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the row is visible; otherwise, false.

Exception Condition

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;
