Hide Object(s)


The Hide Object(s) action hides objects on a window. When the action is performed, the selected objects are removed from sight. This action is contextually useful in order to remove unnecessary objects (as dictated through user interaction) from sight. You can see this action in use throughout Alpha Anywhere, including the Script Genie, as Alpha will often hide entry fields depending on the choices you made previously.


  1. Make a selection in the Hide object(s) in which window? field. This field will be grayed out unless this action is based on a Form or Browse. The choices are:

    • "Current Form or Browse Window".

    • "Another Form or Browse Window".

  2. If you selected "Another Form or Browse Window", in the Window Name field select either:

    • "Forms"

    • "Browses"

  3. Select one of the listed forms or browses.

  4. Click Add Object to List to display a list of available object on the form or browse. Select the object and click OK to add it to the list of objects to hide.

  5. Select an object in the Object Names list and click Remove Object from List if you do not wish to hide it.

  6. Click Next >.

  7. Optionally modify the comment that describes the action.

  8. Click Finish.
