XRControl.Visible Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether or not the report control is displayed in a document.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v23.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Reporting.Core


public virtual bool Visible { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean true

true if the control is displayed; otherwise, false.


When the Visible property is set to false, the document will contain an empty area corresponding to the control’s dimensions (regardless of the XRControl.CanShrink property value). An exception is the XRSubreport control that becomes suppressed in a document when its CanShrink setting is enabled.

To maintain the position and visibility of report elements in a document, consider creating reports programmatically.

In a Report Designer, if a control’s Visible property is disabled, this control appears with a striped background.
