[Solved] Check, using jQuery, if an element is ‘display:none’ or block on click

I want to check and sort elements that are hidden. Is it possible to find all elements with attribute display and value none?

Solution #1:

You can use :visible for visible elements and :hidden to find out hidden elements. This hidden elements have display attribute set to none.

hiddenElements = $(':hidden');
visibleElements = $(':visible');

To check particular element.

if($('#yourID:visible').length == 0)


Elements are considered visible if they consume space in the document.
Visible elements have a width or height that is greater than zero,

You can also use is() with :visible



If you want to check value of display then you can use css()

if($('#yourID').css('display') == 'none')


If you are using display the following values display can have.

display: none

display: inline

display: block

display: list-item

display: inline-block

Check complete list of possible display values here.

To check the display property with JavaScript

var isVisible = document.getElementById("yourID").style.display == "block";
var isHidden = document.getElementById("yourID").style.display == "none";
