The visibility property is used to hide or show the content of HTML elements. The visibility property specifies that the element is currently visible on the page. The ‘hidden’ value can be used to hide the element. This hides the element but does not remove the space taken by the element, unlike the display property.

Syntax: = 'hidden'; = 'visible';



<!DOCTYPE html>
        .container {
            height: 80px;
            width: 250px;
            border: 2px solid black;
            background-color: green;
            color: white;
    <div class="container">
        Click the buttons to show or hide the green box
    <button onclick="showElement()">
            Show Element
    <button onclick="hideElement()">
            Hide Element
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function showElement() {
            element = document.querySelector('.container');
   = 'visible';
        function hideElement() {
            element = document.querySelector('.container');
   = 'hidden';
