Visibility value not consistent

Good day,


I encountered an issue wherein the visibility condition of a control card is not consistent all throughout the form.


I have 2 forms which depends on each other. The forms are on a different screen (needs a NEXT button to navigate through the screens). I have this control card from Form1 named Recess1 that has a "Visibility" value of




Then, I navigated to Form2. When I tried to check the value of it on the Form2 by putting the "Text" value of a field named lblVisibilityRecess1 as




it showed/returned "false".

I was expecting it to return "true" since it is what I placed on the Visibility property for Recess1.


So I tried to do a work around and set a variable varGenerallyTrue on the OnStart of my app:





Then when I checked lblVisibilityRecess1, it is now showing/returning "true".


Any thoughts why is this happening?

I reproduced your example but did not get the result you have:

Datacard1 in Form1 on Screen1: true



lblVisibilityRecess1 in Screen2 visible property

Datacard1.Visible produces true not false


With regards to the variable OnStart, it will maintain whatever is put in the variable until the app is restarted again. Thus true will remain true until App restarts.

Good day @eka24 ,


I forgot to mention that the forms are in 2 different screens.





The example I gave is based on different screens. Can you recheck the formula I used again?
