item BaseLayoutItem

A BaseLayoutItem descendant which represents the layout item to hide.


The LayoutControl stores its hidden items within the LayoutControl.HiddenItems collection. To verify whether an item is hidden use the BaseLayoutItem.IsHidden property.

End-users can hide and show layout items by moving them to or from the Customization Form via drag and drop. To show a hidden item use the BaseLayoutItem.RestoreFromCustomization method.


When layout items are hidden to the Customization Form, they do not retain their positions in the layout. To preserve the position, use Visibility instead.
