The content-visibility CSS property is used to set whether the element will be rendering its contents or not, forcing a solid set of containments, and allowing user agents to potentially omit a large layout and rendering work until it becomes needed.

Syntax:

/* Keyword values */
content-visibility: visible|hidden|auto;

/* Global values */
content-visibility: inherit| initial| revert| revert-layer| unset;

Property Values:

  • visible: No effect. The element’s content is presented and rendered as usual.
  • hidden: It omits some of its information. The skipped contents cannot be accessed by user-agent features like find-in-page, tab-order navigation, etc., or by selectable or focusable user interface elements. Giving the contents display: This is the best available.
  • auto: The element activates layout containment, style containment, and paint containment. If the user doesn’t find the element’s contents relevant, it also skips over them.

Example 1: This example describes how the content-visibility property works.

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  
<head>
    <style>
        .content1 {
                      content-visibility: visible; 
                      border: 2px solid black;
        }
        .content2 {
                      content-visibility: hidden; 
                      border: 2px solid black;
        }
    </style>
</head>
  
<body>
    <h1 style="color: green;">GeeksforGeeks</h1>
    <h2>CSS content-visibility Property</h2>

    <p class="content2">Content 2</p>
