mySubform.presence = "visible" in the click event of the checkbox

For some reason my form does wierd things when I ever use the hidden presence. Is it merely to remove the objects for design mode and you should make it invisible for testing?

Hidden excludes the objects from layout. It is useful for subform definitions that are not to be part of the form until you wantthem (only in flowed situations). This allows you to define ahead of time then enable when needed.
