Hide checkbox in tab except on certain category

  • 1.  Hide checkbox in tab except on certain category

    We have a custom checkbox in our Outage tab, and we want to hide it except on a specific Category.


    I have followed this code successfully for conditionally hiding things via a checkbox: Conditionally display of field

    <PDM_MACRO name=dtlCheckbox hdr="test" attr=string1>




    But I'm having 2 issues.

    1) How do I select the value out of Category?

    2) How do get to the Outage tab checkbox?

    Accessing controls with its id is not a good idea. If you move/delete/add control in your tab, the id may change.


    If you want to show it only on a specific category, you can do it with a pdm_if


    <pdm_if "$args.category.sym" == "CategoryName">

    <pdm_macro name=dtlCheckbox attr=attribute hdr=header>




    And if you plan to show it on several category, you can add an attribute to your category : z_showSpecificCheckbox, integer.



    <pdm_if "$args.category.z_showSpecificCheckbox" == 1>

    <pdm_macro name=dtlCheckbox attr=attribute hdr=header>
