All Drawing objects, Application, AttributeReference, Group, Toolbar
The object or objects this property applies to.


Boolean; read-write (write-only for the Group object)

TRUE: The object or application is visible.

FALSE: The object or application is not visible.


If you specify an object to be invisible, it will be invisible regardless of the application visible setting. Other factors can also cause an object to be invisible; for example, an object will not be displayed if its layer is off or frozen.

Specifying the application to be invisible allows you to run tasks in the background without having to see the component.
