hi
u can set the update_allowed property of that item, so that now that item acts as a normal text item.

set_item_property('item_name',update_allowed,property_false)...

hope this will work for u...

cheers

Hi!
I try to change background color programmatically using set_item_property('item_name',background_color,'red'); and it's not
working with any kind of triggers: mouse_enter, mouse_click, or....

Can you help me?

Thanks,

You will be knowing the condition when you want to hide the item, for example if you have a field say MALEFEMALE and the user input the value 'F' then you need to hide item BOYS. In a trigger raised by that condition, say KEY-NEXT-ITEM or WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM, add the following statement
SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('BOYS',Visible,Property_False);
To make it appear again use
SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('BOYS',Visible,Property_True);
To make it enabled and navigable then use
SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('BOYS',Enabled,Property_True);
SET_ITEM_PROPERTY('BOYS',Navigable,Property_True);

Hope this is the answer you are looking for.

Regards
