jQuery :visible – Check for hidden elements in jQuery

jQuery Notification plugin

The :visible selector check if an elements are hidden in jQuery by selecting each and every elements in a DOM that is currently visible or not.

But visible elements are elements which are not:
– set to display:none
– width and height set to 0
– form elements with type=”hidden”
– parent is set as hidden

Example for hidden elements:

console.log("Hidden elements found");




if ( $(element).css('display') == 'none' ){
// element is hidden

But above scenario, functions don’t work with the visibility attribute but CSS selector will have the best performance.
