Hidden Subform issue

I am using the following function to populate an error subform in a form.  It's works the way it should except when there are no errors (errMsg.length === 0).

Changing the ErrorsField presence to hidden causes the for block not to execute. The alert still comes up. I have somewhat fixed the problem by moving the ErrorsField.presence = "hidden" command to the PreSubmit event but I really don't understand why it won't work this way.  I would really appreciate any help.

function PopulateErrors() {

     ErrorsField.ListBox1.clearItems();

          if (errMsg.length > 0) {

               ErrorsField.presence = "visible";

               for (var i = 0; i < xfa.layout.pageCount(); i++) {

                    xfa.resolveNode("form1.Page1[" + i + "].EmailSubmitButton1").presence = "hidden";

                    xfa.resolveNode("form1.Page1[" + i + "].Submit").x = "3.375in";

               }

               for (var i = 0; i < errMsg.length; i++) {

                    ErrorsField.ListBox1.addItem(errMsg[i].message);

               }

               ErrorsField.ListBox1.caption.value.text.value = errMsg.length === 1 ? errMsg.length + " error found. Please correct the fields listed below." : errMsg.length + " errors found. Please correct the fields listed below.";

               xfa.host.setFocus(ErrorsField.GoToFirst);

          }

     else {

          ErrorsField.presence = "hidden";

          for (var i = 0; i < xfa.layout.pageCount(); i++) {

               xfa.resolveNode("form1.Page1[" + i + "].EmailSubmitButton1").presence = "visible";

               xfa.resolveNode("form1.Page1[" + i + "].Submit").x = "2.375in";

          }

          xfa.host.messageBox("No errors found. You may submit your survey by clicking on the green submit button.", "Error check", 3);

     }

}
