How to hide a series in Chart?

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejChart

Essential Chart supports hiding a Chart series using visibility property of series. Series is visible when the value of visibility property is visible and it is hidden when the value is hidden. When a series is hidden, legend item symbol is displayed in gray color. You can also toggle the visibility of series by clicking the symbol of legend item that represents the series.


    series: [{
    //Hiding the series
    visibility: 'hidden',
    . . . . . . .
    . . . . . . .
    . . . . . . . .
    . . . . . . . .

The following screenshot displays the Chart with two series; visible series and invisible series. Note that the symbol color of the legend item is gray for hidden series.

So how do you change the visibility. For example with a button click.
