I have a field on my form as a TEXT ITEM and the properties are ENABLED YES, VISIBLE NO.

WHen I start the form the field is hidden just as I want it to be. But when I run some code, it shoudl become VISIBLE, but its not.

My code is

IF :acctount > 0 then
    set_item_property('TXT_AMOUNT',enabled,property_true);
    set_item_property ('TXT_AMOUNT',visible, property_true);
end if;

First thing is check if this piece of code is really executing.
Put some message and use pause;
Also before you run / create fmx, use ctl+shift+k so that the form compiles completely.

If you are sure that these above are not the reason, try using synchronize;
E.g.

IF :acctount > 0 then
    set_item_property('TXT_AMOUNT',enabled,property_true);
    set_item_property ('TXT_AMOUNT',visible, property_true);
end if;
Synchronize;


Thanks,
Ritesh

also make sure that the item is on the correct canvas, tab page etc.
check the position of the item in the layout editor.
you can also check if the trigger is executed correctly with some extra checks (e.g. in an WHEN-MOUSE-DOUBLECLICK trigger);

BEGIN
    IF GET_ITEM_PROPERTY('TXT_AMOUNT',visible) = 'TRUE' THEN
        MESSAGE('Item is visible at ' || GET_ITEM_PROPERTY('TXT_AMOUNT', x_pos) || '/' || GET_ITEM_PROPERTY('TXT_AMOUNT', y_pos));pause;
    ELSE
        MESSAGE('Item is NOT visible!');PAUSE;
    END IF;
END;

yes, try synchronize; once to see whether it is an issue related to memory/canvas refresh.

Thanks
