Hello experts I keep having text populate the first 200 lines of my webpage. I keep deleting it but when I build it it reapears. I found it in my other section of my page and replaced the text with a lable control, but that did not fix the text populating the first part. I have put the text into a div and want to make sure it never is seen. How do I make a div invisiable on C# asp.net using visual studio.

This is rather urgent as this bug showed up last night at 3am and the site is LIVE.

HELP!!!!

Depends on what exactly you are after.

display:none; will remove the element completely from the flow of text.

visibility: hidden; will keep the space it occupies but will not show what is in the element.

also in C# you can make it invisible with this code:

<element id>.visible = false;
