Visible Binding

The visible binding shows or hides the target DOM element or widget depending on the View-Model value. If the value is true, the target DOM element is shown. If the value is false, the target DOM element is hidden—its display CSS attribute is set to none.

Getting Started

The example below demonstrates how to use the visible binding.

<div id="view">
<div data-bind="visible: isVisible">some content
<button data-bind="click: hide">Hide</button>
var viewModel = kendo.observable({
    isVisible: true,
    hide: function() {
        this.set("isVisible", false);

kendo.bind($("div"), viewModel);

In the example the div element is initially visible because the value of the isVisible field is true. When the user clicks the button, the div is going to be hidden because the value of the isVisible field is set to false.

Non-Boolean Values

Non-boolean values, such as 0, null, undefined and "", are treated as false by the visible binding. All other values are treated as true.
