Show/Hide Dependent Fields Plus plugin: show/hide fields in the View mode

By andreasml - June 19

Hi

I have been using this plugin and I am very satisfied. The plugin works perfectly in Edit mode, however in View mode all fields are present. I wonder whether it is possible to show/hide fields in the view mode as well. 

Regards, 

Andreas Lazaris

PS. I was very much surprized to see that all plugins are offered FREE of charge!!! Is there a reason for that?

Hi Dainel

Thank you for your reply. You mean that it would be possible to create a plugin that would show only the completed fields of a record on the View mode in prespecified sections?

Hi Andreas,

To clarify, it's not able to be done via a plugin alone - it would also require specific changes to the CMSB core files. This means that unless those changes were also added to the CMSB official release, the plugin would be at risk of breaking any time the site is updated.

Let me know if that makes sense, or if you have any other questions!

Also, I missed this previously:

It was mentioned by Dave in the latest CMSB release (https://www.interactivetools.com/forum/forum-posts.php?CMSB-v3.56-Released-now-free-with-PHP-8.1-support-82518) - but the short version is that it's been a long-time goal of ours, and we find a lot of value in making these tools available to everyone to use.

Thanks,
