How to hide a div with jquery or alternative?

Tags: javascript,jquery,html,css

Problem :

Okay so here is my code:


<div id="wrap_all">
<header id="header" class="header_color light_bg_color mobile_drop_down" itemtype="" itemscope="itemscope" role="banner">
<div id="overlay-2"></div>
<div id="main">


#overlay-2 {
height: 100%;
width: 100%;
position: fixed;
left: 0;
top: 0;
background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #000000;
opacity: 0.85;  
z-index: 10;
visibility: hidden;


$('.custom_class_1').click(function()    {

I want to toggle the visibility of #overlay-2 when I click on my button ".custom_class_1"

How can I do this? Not sure if visibility: hiddenis the route to go in the css. But I do want it hidden on page load as it would cover the entire screen with a dark overlay.

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks

Solution :

This should work:

$('.custom_class_1').click(function()    {

And in your main css, as others have suggested you should use Display: none in place of Visibility: hidden
