Conversion of showhide xtype to Touch UI


Level 1

HI ,

We're in the process of converting all of our Classic UI dialogs to Touch UI using the dialog conversion tool. We're using the showhide xtype in a lot of our form field components and we're looking for an equivalent or alternative widget for the Touch UI. Any suggestions?

Description about showhide xtype widgets:-

I'm referring to the specific showhide xtype which handles show/hide logic for the HTML elements in a web form, not widgets in a dialog. The values captured in this xtype are passed along to the Abacus JS which handles form logic for components that extend OOTB form field components. Below is a screenshot of the showhide xtype. Clicking that checkbox in the background dialog opens the 2nd dialog that allows authors to configure show/hide logic for elements that are present on the web form.


Dialog shown below for more clarity:



Thanks a lot in advance

@Jeetendra134345  Doesn't look to be an adaptive form, what component are you using?

Hi @Jeetendra134345 ,


Did you find any solution for show/hide xtype and implementation of rules in form components in touch UI components or did you implement any custom logic to achieve this. 


Your help is appreciated.
