Hiding elements

For faster mobile-friendly development, use responsive display classes for showing and hiding elements by device. Avoid creating entirely different versions of the same site, instead hide element responsively for each screen size.

Screen Size Class
Hidden on all display="none"
Hidden only on xs display={{ xs: 'none', sm: 'block' }}
Hidden only on sm display={{ xs: 'block', sm: 'none', md: 'block' }}
Hidden only on md display={{ xs: 'block', md: 'none', lg: 'block' }}
Hidden only on lg display={{ xs: 'block', lg: 'none', xl: 'block' }}
Hidden only on xl display={{ xs: 'block', xl: 'none' }}
Visible only on xs display={{ xs: 'block', sm: 'none' }}
Visible only on sm display={{ xs: 'none', sm: 'block', md: 'none' }}
Visible only on md display={{ xs: 'none', md: 'block', lg: 'none' }}
Visible only on lg display={{ xs: 'none', lg: 'block', xl: 'none' }}
Visible only on xl display={{ xs: 'none', xl: 'block' }}
hide on screens wider than md
hide on screens smaller than md
<Box display={{ xs: 'block', md: 'none' }}>
  hide on screens wider than md
</Box>
<Box display={{ xs: 'none', md: 'block' }}>
  hide on screens smaller than md
</Box>
