      What type icon can use for conditional formatting

      Post

      I have an icon on my layout that I can use conditional format to hide it if one is not signed on as an admin.  I am not sure the icon type.  I have tried putting other icons on the layout that I need to hide but when I choose conditional formatting it doesn't allow me to access that option.  What type of icon should I use?  I have tried .png, .ico, .jpeg.  None allows conditional formatting option.

          Graphic objects cannot be conditionally formatted. Conditional formats change the fill color, text color or text formatting of a layout object. Images have none of the above to conditionally format.

          Hide Object When, however can be used to make such an object appear and disappear if you are using FileMaker 13.

          There are ways to make a picture on a layout change using other methods such as a container field that displays different images as conditions change.
