Hide calculated field during data entry

Hi there - I have a form with a label that sums up the values of three other text boxes.  I'd like to hide this field during the data entry process, since it is caluclated and just clutters up the form and may confuse the person who is entering data.  I realize I could just set the visibility to false, but I would like to be able to see the field when clicking on the record in SharePoint(when the PowerApps form gets displayed in read only mode).  Is there a simple way to accomplish this?  Thanks in advance.

Re: Hide calculated field during data entry

if(Form.Mode = FormMode.New; true; false)

use that function on a visible property, not just false. When the form is in a new mode the field will not show, when the form is in edit or view mod the field will show.

You can parse this down to Form.Mode = FormMode.New since it reduces to either true or false.
