Hidden fields in grids
Author: email@example.com (voltagecontrol)
I would like to convert some old forms using "normal" uniface-dummys to use grid-widgets instead. However, the old forms often make heavy use of hidden fields to hold technical data, and as far as I can see there's no apparent way to hide fields when using the grid widget.
This is a real shame, since most of the time, using the gridwidget would be a very nice modernization of our old forms - but if we can't hide these technical fields the grid becomes littered with "junk" fields. Do you have any suggestions on this topic?
I realize that one way would be to create and maintain a separate "tech data dummy"-entity in parallell to the grid, but this would require quite a lot of rewriting compared to just converting old entities to use the grid-widget.
