Tip #76: Did you know… How to hide a non-visual control in your designer?


Some times as you are building your web page, you may want to hide all the non-visual controls like Timer control so that the page looks close to how it would be rendered on your browser.

Our Designer can toggle between displaying and not displaying Non-visual controls using

 Ctrl+Shift+N

Display ASP.NET Non-visual controls turned on:

With Visual Aids turned on

Display ASP.NET Non-visual controls turned off:

NoControls

This option is also present under View menu.

View->Visual Aids –>ASP.NET Non-visual controls as shown below…

Menu

Enjoy!

    I didn’t notice this before. In my style, the timer and other controls are in another form which is too small to pay attention to. 😉
