Hello Gurus,

when I openan form in Live cycle Designer, to hyde a Field, i get 3 confusing options.

Invisible

Hidden (Exclude from Layout)

Inactive (exlcude from processing)

I m not Quite sure which option is the best option to choose.

at the moment, we have webservices for these fields which have alogic to populate the information automatically in those fields. We dont want these fields now. But I dont want to tweak webservices.

keeping this in mind, could you please suggest me the best option to choose to hyde a field?

thanks and Reagrds,

Dinesh.

Hi Dinesh,

In most of the cases for the above scenario, you would need to select Hidden (Exclude from Layout), this way the field would be hidden and also it would not occupy any space on the form, but still you would be able to access its values.

Consideration is, If that Field is mandatory and is not visible on the screen, then it would be a problem as user will not able to go furthur.

We need to make sure that that they are not mandatory.
