How to check an element is visible or not using jQuery

Use the jQuery :visible Selector

You can use the jQuery :visible selector to check whether an element is visible in the layout or not. This selector will also select the elements with visibility: hidden; or opacity: 0;, because they preserve space in the layout even they are not visible to the eye.

Let's check out an example to understand how this selector basically works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>jQuery Test If an Element is Visible</title>
<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"></script>
<script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
        $("button").click(function(){
            // show hide paragraph on button click
            $("p").toggle("slow", function(){
                // check paragraph once toggle effect is completed
                if($("p").is(":visible")){
                    alert("The paragraph  is visible.");
                } else{
                    alert("The paragraph  is hidden.");
                }
            });
        });
    });
</script>
</head>
<body>
    <button type="button">Toggle Paragraph Display</button>
    <p style="display: none;">Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet adipi elit...</p>
</body> 
</html>
