Hiding fields: different behavior in different forms RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I was recently customising a form for the account entity and I made one of the fields not visible by default.

    To my surprise, when I pubilshed my customisation and tested the form out, there was a space where the hidden field used to be (that is, the space didn't collapse with the next field taking its place). I was surprised because I did the same customisation before and I could swear the space of where hidden fields would be tend to collapse in such situation.

    Anyway I thought my mind was playing tricks on me so I let it go. Until I decided to customise the Opportunity form. I hid one field in the Opportunity form and (guess what?) this time the space did collapse (!?)

    I wonder what could be possibly causing a different behaviour in the account form... Any ideas?

    Regards,
    P.

  • Do you have any other filed in the same row on account form which would need space. As per my knowledge if we hide all fields in the row then row will be hidden.

  • I believe if you put it in its own section and hide the section then it will collapse properly.
