How to hide a column in a table view, but show it in a detail view or form view?

view
(Fakerat Xavier) #1

In my application I just need one column to be visible but be able to search all records in the table and such that the all fields appear in detail view?

I tried manually hiding these columns in Data > View columns , but its not producing the desired result since it neither searches nor shows all the fields in detail form,

You can use:
CONTEXT("ViewType")="Table"
CONTEXT("ViewType")="Detail"
CONTEXT("ViewType")="Form"
expressions to show/hide columns in specific view types. You can also refer to view name with:
CONTEXT("View")="ViewName"

Thanks but this doesn’t work for me, I just need to have one column showing in tabular view

but be able to see all rows in form view. (images removed for copyright protection)

How to achieve this?

You can use the Column Order property of your table view to show which columns you want, if that’s the case.

It is still showing multiple columns in table-view, is there something I am doing wrong?

Ensure that only the column name that you want to show appears in Column Order property of that table view.
