Hide Monitor ()

Type Stack
Introduced in 2.0 alpha
Removed in 2.0 beta

The Hide Monitor () block was a Data block and a Stack block. The block hid the specified variable's or list's Stage monitor. Both variables and lists were shown in this block, but the variables were always shown first, and each group was sorted by creation time.

This block was planned to replace Hide Variable () with the release of Scratch 2.0, as it could hide lists as well. It was later separated into a block for variables, and a block for lists.

Example Uses

In projects that use variables' stage monitors to display things, the displays may have to hide and show at times. With the Show Monitor () block, this could be done.

Some popular uses could have been:

  • Hiding a slider when a value is not editable
  • Hiding the score at the end of a game
  • Hiding save/load codes
  • Hiding a console
