Advanced viewing of hidden fields

This tip describes advanced viewing of hidden fields.

In a previous tip it was suggested to use @isNotmember("[ViewHiddenFields";@UserRoles) -- there is a better way…

The formula @isNotmember("[ViewHiddenFields";
@UserRoles) gets executed for every line of the hidden fields, 
this can be quite time consuming --- and it would not work in a 
Notes Client unlesse "Enforce consisten ACL" is enabled. 
The smarter way:
Create a field (could be a shared field) at the very beginning 
of a form, Number, Computed for  display, Name "isNotDebug";
Formula could be like above:
-or- a combination
... or whatever makes sense for you.
All "hidden" fields have the Hide-when formula: isNotDebug.
... more flexible, faster code.
