jQuery | :hidden Selector
  • Last Updated : 12 Apr, 2019

The hidden selector selects hidden elements to work upon.
Syntax:

$(":hidden")
    Hidden elements are elements that are:

  • 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:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  
<head>
    <!-- Jquery CDN -->
    <script src=
  </script>
    <!-- Jquery demonstration script -->
    <script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $("h1:hidden").show(5000);
        });
    </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>
