Hide or Show a Field via Action Buttons
Posted on 2001-09-10
In Lotus Notes R5, I have a form in which I wish the user to click an Action Button to allow that a particular field would be "shown" or "hidden", ie. toggling back and forth. This would even be on the original form before the document is saved.
I have a completely hidden field called "TicketShow" which is set to either "0" (not show) or "1" (show) via action buttons.
The field called "Ticket#" (Text, Editable) is the one which I want to either show or not show. It has a hide formula which says to "hide paragraph if TicketShow is 0".
The problem is that the document has to be SAVED each time before giving the desired effect. Is there a way to refresh the screen based on the new value of the "TicketShow" field without having to do a File Save and File Close first?
Or perhaps I am making this more complicated than it needs to be...any other approaches are welcome. Thanks.
