One of the bug new features for Sugar Logic in 6.2 is the ability to create dynamically visible fields in studio. For example, if we have a dropdown like the Industry field of accounts that has an other option, it would be nice to have an “other” field appear to specify what this other industry value is. In order to do this in 6.2, all we need to do is create a new “Other Industry” field, set the Dependent checkbox, and enter the “Visible If” of:
Once added to the Edit and Detail views, the other industry field will appear only for records that have an industry value of “Other” (Based on the key, not the translated value. The formula will still work when using Sugar in languages besides English). Another tip is to place dynamic fields on their own row (with no filler fields). This way, the entire row will disappear when the field is not visible and reduce empty space on your layouts.
