Hiding elements

    I have a tabbed form, on one of these tabs are repeat groups.
    There are four field elements in the repeat group


    I want to hide one of the fields elements on load, but only on the first repeat.
    I have placed this code in the inline javascript section of an element which is not on a repeat group.
    Code (Javascript):
    Then in form_X.js I have this

    Code (Javascript):

    function hideInputFields(el){
                 var elem = 'house_boat_93_repeat___fore_aft_centre_a_0';
                 console.log("hide this element: ",elem);
    What happens is that 'house_boat_93_repeat___fore_aft_centre_d' is hidden on all rows and 'house_boat_93_repeat___fore_aft_centre_a' is still visible

    I am unsure if I am using the wrong approach or have made a mistake?

    The code looks OK, although I would delay running the function till Fabrik has finished loading:

    Have you tried putting a breakpoint in your code, and poking around?

    I haven't done either of those things, but I will today and report the results.

    I placed some break points in, but didn't really see anything, however I am only an amateur.

    I did however create a new database, new table and form with and 2 groups, 2 field elements on each.

    This allowed me to make the following observations.

    When the group repeat template is set to table, it hides the element that is closest to the fabrik group repeater buttons, no matter what element name I use and on every new repeat group opened.

    When the group repeat template is set to list, it hides the correct element but on every repeat, rather than just the first one.

    Setting the form template to either bootstrap or bootstrap-tabs has no effect.

    I'm not quite sure what to try next?

    could you also let me know how to delay running code until fabrik has loaded?
