Mechanism of Functioning

  • Multiple CSS Classes: If multiple visibility control classes are added, ALL of them must meet the criterion to keep the element visible. If any one of them hides the element, it will be hidden. For example: visible_to_group_123 visible_to_group_124 will show the element only to those who have access to both groups.Hidden data/elements reach the browser. Though users do not see it.
  • CSS is added to the page for all CSS elements that need to be hidden based on the above rules.
  • After the page is loaded. These elements are removed from the page using jQuery (if available), so it won’t be available even on Inspect.
  • Elements rendered after the page load are hidden but not removed from DOM/page.
