Description#

Returns a boolean value True if the image is set to be visible, False if not. This value can be modified with the Py5Shape.set_visible() method.

The default visibility of a shape is usually controlled by whatever program created the SVG file. For instance, this parameter is controlled by showing or hiding the shape in the layers palette in Adobe Illustrator.

Underlying Processing method: PShape.isVisible

Syntax#

is_visible() -> bool
