Make a Text Box Visible

Make a Text Box Visible

Make a Text Box Visible

In Report Builder I have hidden a Text box named 'Credit' through Expression Builder. I would only like to make 'Credit' visible, if a secondary text box 'new_discount' has a value. I am hoping to handle this through 'Express Builder'. I would very much appreciate any assistance on this matter.

Thank you.

RE: Make a Text Box Visible

Perhaps something like: =IIF(Fields!new_discount.Value) <> "",False,True)

This sets the "Hidden" property, so if there is a value we do not want to hide it, otherwise, we want it hidden.

RE: Make a Text Box Visible

Thank you for your post. That was the solution. I really thought I would need to use 'visible' in the solution but I did not.

RE: Make a Text Box Visible

Yes, it does seem to be a bit awkward in the way they have labelled things. Sort of like "check here if you don't NOT want to receive..."
