Component Visibility

Please note that visibility conditions are not a security feature. If you use them, the app can still download filtered or hidden data. If your app has private or sensitive data then you should use Row Owners. Learn more in our Security Center.​

Component visibility allows you to hide or show components based on certain conditions. In the app below we have set numerous component visibility rules that make our party invitation dynamic, depending on the RSVP of the user.

To set a condition on a component's visibility, head to the Features tab in the component's settings. There you will be able to add a condition based on the data in your sheet. Once you add this condition, the component may disappear from the app's screen, but you can still access it on the right-hand side of Glide.

On the first screen of our form below we can initially see only one component. However, on the right-hand side panel, we can see all our hidden components ready to show when their conditions are met.

If you find yourself using lots of visibility conditions to make each list item unique – then you can consider using independent screen configuration instead.
