You can hide one or more widgets that are configured to clear up the screen. This allows you to improve the efficiency to develop your project.

Background information

Hiding a widget allows you to achieve the following results:
  • A map widget occupies too many CPU and memory resources, so the editor responds slowly. To resolve this issue, you can hide the widget to reduce workloads on computing resources and facilitate the deployment of other widgets.
  • You can hide a configured widget to clear up the screen and improve efficiency.
