Discussion

The hideRepeatingSectionColumn() method can be used to show or hide a column in a repeating section.

{dialog.object}.hideRepeatingSectionColumn('QUANTITY');

Understanding 'visibility_hide' 

There are two mode available for hiding a column: 'hide' and 'visibility_hide'. If 'hide' is used, the entire column is hidden and the space occupied by the column is removed from the layout:

{dialog.object}.hideRepeatingSectionColumn('QTY','hide');

The second mode, 'visibility_hide', hides the column but does not change the repeating section's layout. In other words, the space occupied by the column is still shown:

{dialog.object}.hideRepeatingSectionColumn('QTY','visibility_hide');

If 'visibility_hide' is used to hide a column, you must use 'visibility_show' to display it again:

{dialog.object}.hideRepeatingSectionColumn('QTY','visibility_show');
