Calculation for field visibility with dynamic drop-down list

Post

Hello, 

I need a calculation that will allow me to hide fields on a layout when a certain option from a dynamic drop down menu is selected. I am trying to do this in layout mode, with the behavior option "Hide Object when." For example, I have a "Structure" field with a list of structures (House, Tower, Garden, etc.) and multiple fields attributed to each specific structure (column #, section #, post #, etc). The dynamic drop-down menus display the data in each field that correspond to any given structure. However,  I would like to show only those fields related to a certain structure on the layout to make the information relevant. Each corresponding field would be shown or hidden depending on the selected structure. I am using FileMaker Pro 13 Advance. 

Thanks!
