ASPxEditBase.ClientVisible Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies the initial visibility state of an editor on the client.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public bool ClientVisible { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean true

true to make an editor initially displayed on the client; false to render the editor into the web page, but make it initially hidden on the client side.


Use the ClientVisible property to define an editor’s initial visibility state. The editor’s visibility can then be dynamically changed on the client side using the ASPxClientControlBase.SetVisible method.


If an editor’s server Visible property is set to false, the editor is not rendered into the web page at all, so it can’t be manipulated on the client side.
