Archive.png This article or section documents something not included in the current version of Scratch (3.0). It is only useful from a historical perspective. For information on the feature that replaced this one, see Hide Variable () (block).
Hide Monitor ()
hide monitor [variable v]:: variables
Category Data
Type Stack
Introduced in v148 (2.0 alpha)
Removed in v195 (2.0 alpha)

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.[citation needed] 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
