Conditional visibility based on collection text

Is it possible to set the visibility property of an item to true if a certain text phrase is in a collection:

For ex:

If(colName.Result = "Text Phrase", true, false)

Or something along these lines?

Re: Conditional visibility based on collection text

Could you be more specific with regards to where you are viewing the collection.  Do you want to filter the collection for the phrase and show only the records that contain the phrase in a gallery or do you want to blank out an item in a gallery?

Re: Conditional visibility based on collection text

The formula should be written as below:

If("Text Phrase" in colName.Result , true, false)

If you would like to check if the Text exists in the Collection Result field.


Let me know if you have any further questions.
