PROPERTY:  Layer::visibility

layer.visibility = "value"

This property determines whether or not a layer is visible. The "value" parameter can be "show", "hide" or "inherit", the latter causing the layer to inherit the value of its parent object's visibility property.

The following example creates two layers, aboveLayer and belowLayer, and alters the visibility property of the aboveLayer layer on the occurance of a MouseOver event.

<layer name=aboveLayer bgcolor="lightgreen" top=50 left=80 width=150 height=50 onMouseOver=visibility="hide">

Mouse over me to reveal the layer below


<layer name=belowLayer above=aboveLayer bgcolor="lightblue" top=20 left=20 width=150 height=50>

Hello from the layer below!
