Hide multiple Measures in a Measure Group at once using Business Intelligence Development Studio...

Sometimes there will be situation that there are hundreds of measures in a measure group and we want to hide most of them except few measures.
But normally in the BIDS, measures are list down as a tree and in that you have to set the visibility one by one as shown in the below figure. Because we cannot select all the measure by this view.


But for hundreds of measures this will not be practical and it will take more time and effort. 
We can easily do this by changing the measures listing to Grid as shown below.


Then we can select the multiple measures at once using the Shift or Ctrl keys and set the visibility as shown below.


Hope this will be helpful and save your time and effort.
