public bool Visible { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean true

true to show a parameter editor; otherwise, false.


All hidden parameters are submitted to a report with default values. You can also submit default values for all report parameters (visible and hidden) when you open a report Preview. For this, disable the report’s RequestParameters property.


The following example hides an editor of the Company parameter.

Visible = true (Default) Visible = false
Visible = true (Default) Visible = false
using DevExpress.XtraReports.Parameters;
// ...
report.Parameters["company"].Visible = false;

You can also specify an expression for the Visible property to show/hide a parameter editor based on a value of another parameter.

Show/hide a parameter editor based on a value of a different parameter

using DevExpress.XtraReports.Parameters;
// ...
using DevExpress.XtraReports.Expressions;
// ...
    new BasicExpressionBinding() {
        PropertyName = "Visible",
        Expression = "!IsNullOrEmpty(?customer)",
