Is it possible to control object visibility with a spreadsheet cell?

Postby pablogil » Tue Nov 22, 2016 10:55 pm

Hi,

I would like to control two object visibility with a spreadsheet cell where I would like to write "true" when I want it to be visible and "false" when I want it to be hidden... I don't know if it's possible, if I need to use a variable (alias) or any other workaround...

Any idea?
Thank you

Thank you, pretty quick answer :D

As I see it's still not possible... I would add a "+1" to the visible/hidden feature inside Spreadsheets to drive any hierarchy object.

Thanks again
