In this document and accompanying video we will discuss how to conditionally display items in the List Control.

Click on the Fields tab in the List Builder window, which is where we defined the button (b1) to begin with. Click on the button to see that we have a Show/hide expression that says CONTACTTITLE = "Owner". Click on the smart field to see how that expression is defined:
The Show/Hide Expression can be as simple or as elaborate as needed.
