Determines whether the control's elements are visible or hidden

Type: Property

Access: Read/Write

Data Type: Boolean

Parameters: None

 Property Boolean pbVisible

Read Access: Get pbVisible to BooleanVariable
Write Access: Set pbVisible to BooleanVariable/Value


The pbVisible property controls the user access and visibility of a web control.

If pbVisible is set to False, then the user cannot give focus to the control, cannot edit any of the control's data and cannot see the control or its label. However, the space that the control occupies in the flow-layout is still occupied (but empty).

You should set pbVisible to False when you want to make a control invisible but you do not want to affect the layout of other sibling controls.

The other properties that can be used to manage the visibility of a Web Control are pbEnabled and pbRender.

pbNoFillIfHidden determines whether data is passed between the server to this data entry object (DEO) when it's not displayed.
