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?

    One of the suggested solutions was to create one line views and display them beneath the main view. We can the determine (via code) whether these views are displayed via view sets. This in effect allows us to have multiple fields that can be either displayed or hidden depending on some kind of routine/logic.
