JavaScript Hide Div


In this section, we are going to hide div element on clicking the button using the JavaScript.

In the given example, we have created a div element using <div> tag. The method document.getElementById('div') grabs the text of the div element and refer to property 'visibility' with style object. The 'visibility' property makes the element visible or invisible. Now, if you apply the visibility property with the 'hidden' value to the div element, the text of the div element will disappear and  if you use the 'visible' value, the text will be visible again. When you load the page you will get two buttons and text will be visible. But on clicking the button 'Hide', the function hideDiv() is called that makes the text invisible.

Here is the code:

<h2>Hide Div in JavaScript</h2>
<script language=javascript type='text/javascript'> 
function hideDiv() { 
if (document.getElementById) { 
document.getElementById('div').style.visibility = 'hidden'; 

function showDiv() { 
if (document.getElementById) { 
document.getElementById('div').style.visibility = 'visible'; 

<body onload="javascript:showDiv()">
<button onclick="javascript:hideDiv()">Hide</button> 
<button onclick="javascript:showDiv()">Show</button>
<div id="div">Hello World</div>

Output will be displayed as:

On clicking the button 'Hide', the text will get disappear:
