I'm trying to hide a field and its label while in find mode.
I've tried "Get (WindowMode) = 2" under Hide Object When, but it doesn't work.
What am I missing?
Thanks for your help.
You are missing:
1. A valid reference to windowMode. Find mode is 1. See help for this function:
2. Did you turn on the "Apply in Find Mode" option.
There's a separate box for "apply in find mode" for the hide object condition
see screenshot, check the box that says "apply in find mode"
There's a new way since this question was posted... found it on Filemaker's website.
In Layout mode, select the object.
Click Inspector in the layout bar, then click Data.
For Hide object when, click and specify a calculation to determine when the object should be hidden, then click OK.
To apply the condition for the object in Find mode, select Apply in Find mode.
cindyblaj those directions are exactly the same thing that this thread was about. I'm not sure why you bumped a dead thread from over two and a half years ago to post. Step 3 in your directions is what the original poster was looking for help with. Step 4 is my first response given indicating that there was a checkbox for "apply in find mode".
Please read all answers thoroughly before bumping something so old, especially if it's already been marked as answered.
