Hide field using a different configuration, is this the only way?.


I know that I can control which configuration is used by inserting code into the do_config_determination method, but is that really the only way?. I don't want to have to even more copies of the configuation showing or not showing this particular field. Surely there must be a way of hiding the field within this method without changing the configuation set being used?.

I just can't believe that there is no way around this.

Now I know that using standard configuration can take care of this, but what if you had a screen with lets say 30 fields or which 5 are dynamic, in other words are either diplayed or to be hidden. The combination of on and off states for these 5 fields being either displayed or hidden would mean that you would gradually build a huge number of screen configurations. Hence the need to hide via coding. Does that seem logical?
