hide field


The hide field statement makes the named field or fields invisible and inaccessible to the user.


hide field field_name {, field_name, field_name...}


field_name – The name of the field to be hidden. Multiple fields can be hidden by listing the field names, separated by commas.


Hidden fields will appear to have been removed from the screen, but they can still be accessed from a script. To make the field usable again, use the show field statement.

The hide field statement can’t be used in scrolling windows to selectively hide a field on certain lines. It can be used before the fill window statement to hide a field on all lines of the scrolling window.
