Website Element Visibility

To set visibility for a website element you would first select the element you want to work with; then open its properties panel in the Website Editor Sidebar and click through the Add Behavior button to select the visibility option.

Add Behavior - visibility


An example showing the Add Behavior visibility option for the selected Text element.


The Add Behavior - visibility property is a "client" side implemented feature. All content from the auction website page is sent to the client, or web browser, and the client decides what to show. The property is a convenience and not a secure way to hide information.

The conditions available for the visibility property in the Website Editor are pre-defined. The visibility property for website elements can only be applied to the auction website Column Content elements, Row Content elements, and the Current Page Settings.


Website Element Visibility properties set at the Current Page Settings level will also affect the display of the relevant Menu Entry. Hiding a page will also "hide" it in the menu. This is noted, when in "edit" mode, by a red overlay on the menu entry. img

Clicking on the Visibility property will add it above the Add Behavior button.

Clicking on the property will then show its options.


The first drop-down selector manages if the element is displayed (Show to); or, if the element is not displayed (Hide from).


The Show to option is the default choice.

Although similar, please see Email Element Visibility under the Editing Emails section of the User Guide for using the visibility properties with email content.

An "eye" icon will appear when you are in editor mode if a visibility condition is set for an element.
