    How to hide fine lines that delineate the buttons on a button bar ?

      Hello.

       

      Does anyone has a solution that allows to remove the fine lines that delineate the buttons on a button bar.

      If we remove the lines around the bar and buttons, fine lines between each button is visible.

       

      To hide, I know two solutions:

      - You can hide a button for example when the text is empty using a conditional format, this does not remove the button or the separation lines and does not resize the menu bar. The button is inactive.

      - You can also hide a button with the masking function, but it removes the button and resizes to fill the other buttons instead of the missing button.

      We should be able to hide a button and resize the button bar to be able to keep the same aspect to this bar, but it is not possible yet. This will be  provided for the version 16 or 17 has been rewritten when FileMaker using object technology.

       

      I did a lot of tests of all kinds and the first solution is the most effective, but still separating those traits that are not aesthetic when you have more than one button to hide.


      Using a comprehensive table with two sections of n1 * n2 values, bar buttons of n1 buttons, a box of panels with n1 panels where each panel contains a n2 button bar and a script, we get to do a management dynamic menu with n1 n2 * options to maximum.


      The only flaw is the presence of these very fine dividing lines, but unsightly.
