How to show and hide inline view?

Usual simple case, having Parent and Child table, linked together through ref column. (ispart of setting : true)

When the particular row in parent table is empty with the child table items, i wish to hide inline view from the details view for parent table. Worked out to do this in “showif” for ref column, something like “ISNOTBLANK([_THIS])” , but failed.

Inline view are showing up all the time, regardless the child table row is empty or filled.

Try… COUNT(SELECT([VirtualListName][KeyColumn],TRUE))>0

@Aleksi_Alkio How smart you are!

Yes, I’ve done it successfully.

Not sure what a logic behind this. ISBLANK([xxxx]) did not work out.

But count number of list rows are working… For me, it appears to be the same.

Thank you very much for your usual super help.

You could do the same with ISBLANK([VirtualListName]) as well.

@Aleksi_Alkio Isblank[virtualListName] and Isblank[_this] will bring difference you mean?


Thank you! Well understood.

Hi Aleksi,

I used count as well with the following formula in showif:

When it did not work, I checked the community and saw this post. I tried your count formula as well but it did not work. Might it be that this method does not work anymore?


As per screenshot, if no photo for this tag- View(0), the inline photo gallery should not even show up.
When View(1) then the inline photo gallery should show up.


What was your formula exactly?

Try ISNOTBLANK([5_1PhotoGallery]) with the Show? option

Hi Aleksi,
The expression I used was:

I tried the formula you just suggested but it did not work. I think column Tag from both tables somehow must be in the expression because some tags have photos and some tags don’t have. Maybe appsheet does not have this functionality yet of hiding inline or Ref_rows based on an expression?

It should work with the ISNOTBLANK(…). Is it okay if I check your app?
