Programming with Reflection

object.Visible = Value

Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) whether the Reflection terminal window is currently visible. The Reflection terminal window is typically visible when you're working in the Visual Basic Editor, but hidden when you start Reflection from another application using Automation.

When you use this property from the Reflection SNA Engine (used for 802.2 DLC and coax connections), it specifies whether the Reflection SNA Engine icon is visible.

Setting Visible to False is not the same as minimizing Reflection. (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 not visible 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 is True.
