Show/hide toggle

I posed a general question about whether or not we have the capability to toggle between show and hide in a detail view (or perhaps another sort of view) without writing to a table in order to do so:

It seems that the answer is currently “no” but that several other people would like to have the capability. So, I thought I would repost this as feature request.

I think a showing/hiding toggle for columns would be more helpful in a table view.

That would be nice too! I have at least one situation where I would like to have it in the detail view.

Here’s a situation in which I thought it would be nice to have a hide / show toggle:

I would like for the explanation to be available when the user is wondering what the numbers mean, but such explanations don’t need to be shown by default. I could use a link to direct the user to an explanation on another page, but I’d like the user to be able to stay on this page, particularly if he or she wants to alternate between reading the explanation and then looking at the numbers.

It’s not a huge issue to have the explanation be visible all the time but, as this is already a long page with several sections, the lack of a high/show toggle means that much more scrolling.

Good example. Perhaps just some small up/down arrows to collapse/expand LongText columns, like the red that I added to your screenshot:

Thanks @Marc_Dillon! That’s exactly what I had in mind. :slight_smile:
