Hide columns in the Detail main view, but show the columns in the Detail edit view?

How do I hide columns in the Detail main view, but show the columns in the Detail edit view?

One of my app’s views is a simple user bio page shown as a Detail. The top row(column) fo the bio is the user’s full name, concatenated from name components (CONCATENATE([First Name]," “,[Middle Initial],” ",[Last Name])). That works great.

However, when the bio details are edited using the edit button in the app, the columns for First, Middle Initial, and Last are hidden because I don’t want them seen on the Bio page. The problem is, I DO want the user to be able to edit their own details including their name.

How do I hide columns in the Detail main view, but show the columns in the Detail edit view?
Detail Main: Show Concatenated Name
Detail Edit: Show individual entry lines for First Name, Middle Initial, and Last Name and do not show Concatenated Name.

Thanks!

Hi @loudboy,
Please explore the CONTEXT(“View”) or CONTEXT (“ViewType”) functions described in the article above in show_if constraints of columns.

Use the Column order property of the “Detail Main” view to choose which columns to display in that view. This does not affect what is displayed in the “Detail Edit” view.
