I have a website for a restaurant. There is an admin area in which the client can add menu items, special items and events.

They want to make a change where they have the option of not showing their beverage prices. I would like to set up a toogle where Price is shown or not, based on a check box.

I would like it so after the menu item is added, the admin can view the inserted record and then turn it on/off for the website.

Is there an easy solution?

yes there is an easy solution
1) just create a new database column and name it for example showPrice - datatype bit with a default of whichever you want 1 (which shows price or 0 which hides price)

2) then in the output query that displays these database items you need to add it to your list of columns (of course)

3) in the output query you may have something like
#itemname# #dollarformat(itemprice)#
just change it to
#itemname# <cfif showPrice>#dollarformat(itemprice)#</cfif>

4) in the admin section just create a checkbox (or selectbox) for the admin to set this item to show price or not

good luck ...
