    To control the visibility of a <div> element in JavaScript, you can manipulate the style.display property of the element. Here are the common ways to do this:

    1. Toggling Visibility Using style.display:

      • To hide a <div>, set its display style to 'none'. This removes the element from the document flow, and it will not take up any space.
      • To show the <div>, set its display style to 'block' (or 'inline', 'inline-block', etc., depending on how you want it displayed).

      Example:

      function toggleDivVisibility(divId) {
        var div = document.getElementById(divId);
        if (div.style.display === 'none') {
          div.style.display = 'block';
        } else {
          div.style.display = 'none';
        }
      }
      
    2. Using CSS Classes:

      • Define CSS classes for showing and hiding a <div>.
      • Use JavaScript to add or remove these classes from the <div> element.

      CSS:

      .hidden { display: none; }
      .visible { display: block; }
      

      JavaScript:

      function toggleDivVisibility(divId) {
        var div = document.getElementById(divId);
        if (div.classList.contains('hidden')) {
          div.classList.replace('hidden', 'visible');
        } else {
          div.classList.replace('visible', 'hidden');
        }
      }
      
    3. Using Element.classList.toggle:

      • This is a more concise way if you're just toggling between two states (visible and hidden).

      JavaScript:

      function toggleDivVisibility(divId) {
        var div = document.getElementById(divId);
        div.classList.toggle('hidden');
      }
      

    In all these methods, divId is the id attribute of the <div> element you want to show or hide. You can call toggleDivVisibility('yourDivId') to toggle the visibility of that element.

    Remember to ensure that the initial state of the <div> (whether it's hidden or visible on page load) is set appropriately in your HTML or CSS.
