Show Field (Evaluated Field Action)

Display a field to users if the form is in the mode specified. It is possible that the field returned should only be displayed when the form is in one mode or the other. A common use case is that two display field actions are placed under the same evaluated field hook with one set to display in Edit mode and another to display in view mode.


This action belongs in an Evaluated Field procedure. Note: If more than one Show Field Action is returned that match the mode of the form then the first action will be used and that field will display. It is not possible for the evaluated field to display more than one field.

Forms can be in two states Edit / Add where a user can enter data or view where the field values are just displayed and can not be interacted with. By default the field returned by this action will be displayed in both Edit and View modes.
