Use a prompt cancel list to control programmatic table

Is it possible to use a prompt cancel list to control the display of a programmatic table?
Sure it is... You can consider using a field to control your programmable table on the web. What you have to do is Name the table and also Name the rows using the Name field in the web tab of the table properties. If you name the table "MyTable" and named the rows "FirstRow" and "SecondRow" respectively, then all you would have to do to control your programmable table is to create a field on the form called "$MyTable" and have it evaluate to the name of the row you would like to display. The $MyTable field could be a radio button, a keywords field that refreshes on change, a field that is set by another field or action.
