hiding the lines in the vim.

I remember I can hide multiple lines in the vim and make them look like dash line -> "----------------------------" when I was in the uni.
And I also can unhide them later if I want.

I just can't remember how to do it and I google it around, it seems there is no where to mention this.

Anyone can help? Thanks.
