hideElement

Category:UI Controls

hideElement(id)

Hides the element with the provided id so it is not shown on the screen.

The user interface elements you place on the screen are not static. Your app sometimes needs to move, resize, hide or show them. All UI elements (button(), textInput(), textLabel(), dropDown(), checkBox(), radioButton(), image()), can be hidden.
