Show icons from hidden application translucent in OS X Dock

In Mac OS X you can hide an application with the key combination cmd⌘ + H. That the application is hidden you can not see directly in the Dock. Using this command, hidden applications are displayed with a translucent icon in the Dock:

defaults write showhidden -bool true

To make the command take effect, you need to restart the Dock:

killall Dock

Revert to the default setting:

defaults write showhidden -bool false
