Hi,
I would like to disable/enable/visualise/hide button and text field input
based on different mail accounts. I tried to make it under the same
section whose access control is based on mail account. However due to
design issue i cannot group all button and text field inputs using
the sections approach.

Is there any way out? THanks !

You can try using javascript to disable the buttons/text fields as per requirement.

Use Hide formula's ...

What do you mean 'Mail Accounts' ?  Are you trying to change the design of the mail template (I hope not) ?  Or are you talking about Users ?

Read up about hide formula's and user roles  in the Designer help.  This will get you going.  It's probably not sections that you need to use.
Short : define roles in the ACL of your database, and assign these roles to the people you want.  Now use a formula like @userroles != "[TheRole]" in the 'hide formula' properties box  (for the text or for the control (action/field/...) to hide the thing it the user doesn't have the required role.

cheers,

Tom

Hi Tom,
thanks for your comment.
Yes i knew the hide formula but then
if i want to disable it rather than hide the button then
the hide formula cannot do this, right?

No, but what you  then do is create 2 buttons - 1 that's merely an image, and that you show when you want to 'disable' the buttong, and 1 that's the actual button, and that you show when you need it.

If you want to do the same in action buttons, you can't really disable a button in R5, although you could do something similar (create 2 sets of buttons).
In R6, you can disable a button in the action bar.

cheers,

Tom
