Need help creating a SharePoint view

Hi, I use SP13 and Infopath 13.  I created a custom forma and published it to SP13 form library.  The default view has all the field.  The form has many Multipl-selection list boxes.  Based on the selection of these list boxes(actually checkboxes) selection, I want to show certain data field and not some other data field.  How can I do that?  I tried creating a custom view but didn't see any option there.

InfoPath always uses the default view, so you have to edit the default view if you want to exclude data.  Another option is just to ignore it in IP.  

If you want people in SharePoint to see something else than what you want in InfoPath, you would need to setup a custom view and link it to them.

If you are trying to get multiple-selection boxes to work, good luck. After 7 years of working with SP and IP I have not seen anyone happy with them.  Since SP cannot store relational data it is just a promoted field with a comma delineated list which is hard to work with.

I want people in SharePoint to see something different, not all the fields in InfoPath should be display in document library.  Based on what checkboxes are selected in a couple of the MSLB then certain fields should be hidden or display.  How can I set this up in a custom view or is it possible to set this up in custom view?.

When you say custom view are you referring to the SP view? Or a view in InfoPath?

SP, if you have permissions, go to the list tab in the ribbon and create or modify.

for IP, you can create multiple views under the Page Design tab.

in these you can make specific views and formats.  You also may be able to use one view and just hide certain controls, you have to determine what makes the most sense.

you can put a rule on load and switch to a specific view as an action, based on values in the data.

Hi,
I want to hide certain data in SharePoint 2013 Document library data list.  Based on certain MSLB checkboxes selection then some columns/data should not be included.  How do I do this in Custom View?  I clicked on the Library setting, custom view, but can't figure out how to configure that.  
You said on load to switch to a different view, I think you're referring to doing that in InfoPath, right?  I don't see how can I do that in the Document Library list of data.
Thanks.

I do not know of a way to dynamically hide columns based on values in standard view editing.
you can create views and assign to specific users but that is about it.
