Re: Show & /Hide vs Enable & Disable
- Hi there!
Show/hide and enable/disable are fully independent.

> Here's the question: Do show/hide and enable/disable work completely independent of one another? I have a program that, based on attributes in the data, have some options on a menu that are impossible. Other conditions arise because the user makes selections on the menu. I'd like to hide the options that are "impossible" and just disable the ones that disappear because of choices made -- because if they go back, they could "undo" their choices and select others. Since I'm having a little trouble with it, I'm wondering if it's OK to enable a hidden field -- will it stay hidden? If I show a field, will it have the enable/disable set from the last program operation? Are they independent, or if I "show" a field, will LB Basic assume I want it to be enabled, too??
