object.Visible = Value

Works with


Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) whether the Reflection terminal window is currently visible. The Reflection terminal window is visible by default when you run macros created in the Visual Basic Editor (or the Reflection Basic Editor), but is hidden by default when you start Reflection from another application using Automation.

Hidden is not the same as minimized. (Use the WindowState property to minimize Reflection.) When Reflection is minimized, it appears on the Windows Task List and can brought into view in various ways. When Reflection is hidden it does not appear on the Task List and can be brought into view only by setting the Visible property to True.


If you run a macro that sets the Visible property to False, and the macro terminates without resetting it to True, you cannot return Reflection to view.


The default value is True.
