In regards to what? AS2 vs AS3? And there's really no difference...except
for the _. In AS2 some components used visible, whereas everything else uses
_visible, but that's just an API difference in the component.

Thanks for replying, Dave.
As I posted in the ActionScript 1 and 2 forum, it seemed obvious to me that the question was related only to AS2...
I was only wondering why developers made things a little bit more complicated creating to versions of visible property.
your question only makes sense if you're mixing-up as2 and as3 because there is no "visible" property in as2 and there's not "_visible" property in as3. ergo, dave's response.
I often have used visible (without "underscore") property with positive results in AS2!
Can't explain why...
And I remember when:
See Flash 8 Help
A Boolean value that indicates whether the specified menu item is visible when the Flash Player context menu is displayed.
visible is not an as2 property and it doesn't work to affect the _visible property of flash objects unless you (or someone else as is the case with components you haven't built yourself), defines a custom property (like visible) that affects the _visible property of an object.
