Conditionally controlling a field entry based on a previous field

Hello all...


I have a portal within data is being entered. What I would like to do is make a particular field appear or dissapear based on a value entered into one of the earlier fields in the portal.


I have tried applying a conditional using patterncount, but this did not seem to work (possibly a timing issue of commit record?)


I am looking for an elegant "sure fire" way of hiding or showing the field and even preventing data entry into the field if it's hidden.


Any suggestions on the best way to do this?
