Control.Hide Method ()


Conceals the control from the user.

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

public void Hide()

Hiding the control is equivalent to setting the Visible property to false. After the Hide method is called, the Visible property returns a value of false until the Show method is called.

The following code example hides a button if the CTRL key is pressed when the button is clicked. This example requires that you have a Button named button1 on a Form.

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
   /* If the CTRL key is pressed when the 
      * control is clicked, hide the control. */
   if(Control.ModifierKeys == Keys.Control)
