Easy viewing of hidden fields

This tip describes a method for viewing hidden fields.

View member feedback to this tip.

As developers, we all have hidden fields for computations, concatenations, etc. that we need to see during development and later for real-time debugging. I have tried many variations and have found one that works well for me.

Create a Role in the ACL called ViewHidden. In the Properties Box, check the box for "Hide paragraph if formula is true" and add the formula, @IsNotMember( "[ViewHidden]"; @UserRoles )

You can then easily add or remove yourself or others from the role when the fields need to be accessible.


This has worked nicely as a Hide Paragraph formula for my projects:
