How to add "Enabled" and "Visible" Properties of a custom control

I am developing a custom control and written properties like Visible and Enabled in Definition.xml as shown below.

 

<Prop ID="IsVisible" friendlyname="Visible" type="bool" category="General" refreshdisplay="true">
<Value>true</Value>
</Prop>
<Prop ID="IsEnabled" friendlyname="Enabled" type="bool" category="General" refreshdisplay="true">
<Value>true</Value>
</Prop>

 

 

 ...and the code behind Control.cs goes like this:

public bool IsVisible
{
get { return this.GetOption<bool>("isvisible", true); }
set { this.SetOption<bool>("isvisible", value, true); }
}

public bool IsEnabled
{
get { return this.GetOption<bool>("isenabled", true); }
set { this.SetOption<bool>("isenabled", value, true); }
}

in Control.js file, i have the get ans set methods written as below.

getProperty: function (objInfo) {
if (objInfo.property.toLowerCase() == "value") {
return Control.getValue(objInfo);
}
else {
return $('#' + objInfo.CurrentControlId).data(objInfo.property);
}
},

setProperty: function (objInfo) {
switch (objInfo.property.toLowerCase()) {
case "width":
Control.setWidth(objInfo.Value);
break;
case "height":
Control.setHeight(objInfo.Value);
break;
case "style":
Control.setStyles(null, objInfo.Value, $('#' + objInfo.CurrentControlId));
break;
case "value":
Control.setValue(objInfo);
break;
case "isvisible":
Control.setIsVisible(objInfo);
break;
case "isenabled":
Control.setIsEnabled(objInfo);
break;
default:
$('#' + objInfo.CurrentControlId).data(objInfo.property).value = objInfo.Value; //set default property
}
},

The control is showing fine with default options like Visible and Enabled Checked. The issue is when i change the state of those, nothing is happening. Where am i going wrong? How to make these properties work as like normal controls?
