When I run my form I do not want to see my item text until I have clicked a button.

So I set the Item Text Visible property to No.
Then behind the button I have a trigger When-Button_Pressed which contains the following code:
SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('NO', visible, 'YES');

What am I doing wrong.

How do I specific which item I am on about?

Correct syntax is:

SET_ITEM_PROPERTY(your_item, visible, PROPERTY_FALSE);

More you can see in the on-line help "SET_ITEM_PROPERTY" topic.

Thats great, thanks.

I also have a data block which has a scroll bar attached to it, when I run my form first I want this scroll bar invisible and then visible after I press a button.

SET_BLOCK_PROPERTY(myblockname, ?????, ????);

You cant't set scroll bar visible or invisible. But you can move it behind items in multi record data block:

Set_Block_Property(blk_name, BLOCKSCROLLBAR_POSITION, xpos, ypos);
