v-hide is a Vue.js 2 directive that allows for conditional rendering maintaining rendered layout space in the DOM. Simply put… v-hide will add visibility: hidden; or visibility: visible styles based on a boolean vue expression

Live Demo V-Hide Demo


Vue.js provides you with two conditional rendering options; v-if and v-show. v-if will competely remove an item from the DOM. v-show will set display: none style which hides your item and removes it from the rendering of the DOM.

The key feature v-hide provides is to allow conditional rendering but also include the items dimensions if it is hidden. More specifically v-hide will set the style visibility: hidden; or visibility: visible. This may help with some layouts. See the Live Demo V-Hide Demo to show the conditional rendering options.
