FM - Conditional Formatting to Make Buttons Invisible?

I have a growing need to use conditional formatting to make things invisible.  However, conditional formatting does not have an option for that.  In certain situations, such as portal rows where I alternate the background color, I can't simply match the color to make it invisible.  

For example, currently, I have a delete button and a Related Reocrd button on every portal row, but don't like the look when it shows in the blank new-row-to-be.  Ideally, I want to use a condition that says IF the RecID is empty, be invisible.  Do you all have a workaround?

Thanks, Will.  Yes, I prefer someone give me a best practice rather than just answering my specific question.
