For example :- if the user selects 10 columns from a checkbox selection set , that columns only should appear in another layout with data in list view.
This is pretty much the textbook definition of Table View in FileMaker. I would suggest using that, and training the users how to modify the view to show/hide available fields.
Not really sure based on the rest of your post (language barrier) if that's actually what you need, but if you could post some drawings showing sample data as to what you are trying to achieve, it may be easier to understand and make a recommendation.
Thanks Mike for the reply .
By using a Table view "Show/hide" ON fields , the alignment of fields in the "List" will be distorted.
Checkbox set selection
1. Name field - checkbox selected
2. Total field - checkbox selected
5.pen - checkbox selected
6.banner - checkbox selected
In another layout , the list view will be :-
Name | Total | pen | banner
If "show/hide" option will be used , then :-
Name | Total | | | pen | banner | | |
Thanks rgordon . i shall take a look at the file.
This looks good . But all the fields are unstored . I shall try to make it stored as these fields sall be used in other places . There also can be a solution with SetFieldByName and GetField , i am trying it .
Many Thanks !!!

The actual data fields can be stored. The global fields and calc fields are for display purposes and they allow you to edit what you see in the evaluate field.

Thanks for the reply.
I have made it all stored.
Excellent job, Roy. Thank you.
Do you think there a way to use actual, modifiable fields in this columns and use variable column widths?
