Ah, I see what you mean. You would have to run the script elsewhere - what triggers the decision to show or hide the text? Put the script there.

Or you could put the text object into a subform and control the presence via the subform.

A simple if statement should do it. Unless I'm not understanding what you're after.

if (flag == show) {

     textobject.presence = "visible";

}

else if (flag == hide) {

     textobject.presence = "hidden";

}

A text object acts like any other for hiding or showing.

The code I showed previously using the .presence method controls visibility.

Thank you, but where should i put this code, bcz all events are greyed for this TEXT!

If i want to put at root (say my_form) level, then, how can i tell to the system that to make the TAX INFORMATION text as hide/visible? bcz this TAX INFORMATION textObject doesn't have any NAME to it right?

Thank yoiu
