UIElement.IsVisible Property


Gets a value indicating whether this element is visible in the user interface (UI). This is a .GTMT

Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public bool IsVisible { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the element is visible; otherwise, false.

Determination of the IsVisible value takes all factors of layout into account. In contrast, Visibility, which is a settable property, only indicates the intention to programmatically make an element visible or invisible.

Elements where IsVisible is false do not participate in input events (or commands), do not influence either the measure or arrange passes of layout, are not focusable, are not in a tab sequence, and will not be reported in . In contrast, elements where IsEnabled is false will still participate in events and commands, and hit testing, but are also not focusable.GTMT
