    Hi

    I have a list where the data is entered only by the admin. In some rows, some elements have no value.

    I want all the elements to be visible in the 'edit' view so that I can fill in the required elements.

    In the 'details' view (for the public), I want to hide the elements that have no value.

    I added the following condition to default_group.php:

    <?php if ($element->value) { ?>
    .......
    .......
    <?php }?>


    This does hide the empty elements in details view, but it also hides them in edit view.

    Is there a way to make them hide only in details view?

    Alternately, how can I add a condition to show the empty elements only to 'special' users.

    Thanks

    Rajesh

    Yes you could code this and I'm pretty sure there's info about this in the Wiki as I remember a fairly recent post about it.

    However you could also just create two forms, one for edit and one for form view.

    Generally this works:

    PHP:

    if (JRequest::getVar('view') == 'details') {
     // you are in a details view.....
    }
