Hide label when EditScreen Form is in new mode and show in (edit or view)

I can't set this correctly, most answers say to place this in the OnVisible property of the label but none of my labels or text boxes have the OnVisible property, it's just not there. Only the Form has OnVisible.


So I tried to set it like so:
When launching the EditScreen using the new/add button:





And for the label visible property I set:





This works great but if I go back and now launch the screen in view mode, the label is still hidden until I put the screen in edit mode.

What am I missing?

Hi @WorkHard ,


The onvisible property will only be triggered when you switch to the screen of the control.

I suggest you use buttons instead.

I still cannot see the OnVisible even when actively looking at the Screens.
Only OnSelect is available. 







I'm assuming you mean "Visible" not "OnVisible". In that case, where do you place this function below? In the OnVisibile property of the Form1? 



All my actions new, edit, view are done on the same form. I don't have multiple forms. It goes from the browse page to the edit form where I set the DisplayMode depending on what I need.
