Good day. Can I hide a virtual column by an action?

To my knowledge, you can’t directly access “Show_If” property and change its value for a column (virtual or regular), however you can set a formula for the column’s “Show_If” value to be dependant on"another column". Then you can set an action to change the value of the “another column”

Right — the Show_If constraint is a logical true/false condition. The action you take should change some data and the Show_If constraint can react to that to decide to hide the column.

the idea was not to have to load any column, simply to disable it with another action. Thank you

No. You can’t do that. All behavior in AppSheet is controlled by formulas that evaluate an expression over data. So if you need to change a formula from true to false, some underlying data needs to change.
