Data Binding to the Visible property on a drop down

I can successfully databind to the Checked property of a checkbox:

            cboxRampEnabled.DataBindings.Clear();
            cboxRampEnabled.DataBindings.Add("Checked", _devicePresenter.Prescription, "RampEnabled");

but I can not databind to the Visible property of a drop down:

            ddlHidden.DataBindings.Clear();
            ddlHidden.DataBindings.Add("Visible", _devicePresenter.Prescription, "IsHiddenFieldVisible");

IsHiddenFieldVisible is a public boolean property of the object specified by _devicePresenter.Prescription.

Does anyone have any ideas? Does anyone know this is not possible?

Please let me know.

Thanks,

Hello ,

I attached sample.  It works in my case.

IsHiddenFieldVisible property is boolean or anotehr data type.

 public class Test
    {
        public bool Visible
        {
            get;
            set;
        }
    }
   
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
           InitializeComponent();          
            Test t = new Test();
            t.Visible  = false;
            comboBox1.DataBindings.Add("Visible", t, "Visible");
        }
        
    }
