The jQuery :hidden selector selects hidden elements to work upon

Syntax:

$(":hidden")
  • Set to display:none
  • Form elements with type=”hidden”
  • Width and height set to 0
  • A hidden parent element (this also hides child elements)

Example 1: 

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
 
<head>
    <!-- Jquery CDN -->
    <script src=
    </script>
    <!-- Jquery demonstration script -->
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function () {
            $("h1:hidden").show(3000);
        });
    </script>
    <!-- Script ends here -->
</head>
 
<body>
    <center>
        <h1 style="display:none;">
            GeeksforGeeks
        </h1>
        <p>Hidden attribute example</p>
        <p>The above line will show up gradually.</p>
    </center>
</body>
 
</html>

                    

Output: 

jquery-2

            hiddenElements.length +
            " hidden elements total.");
        $("div:hidden").show(1000);
        $("span:last").text("We have found " +
            $("input:hidden").length
            + " hidden inputs.");
    </script>
</body>
 
</html>
