Ok, I am still not sure if this iwhat you wanted, i presume You already have some objects hidden right ? IF you want to label not to be displayed, go to container properties, select an object and click in the bottom label for selected object and give a space bar, this will remove the label.

You can hide the objects, by giving a conditional expression in object properties -> Layout tab and Conditional check button. Write your expression.

Yes you can.

Normally we cannot hide an object within container as it is linked.

In this case you'll need to create a new list box with same Dimension/Expression and use it in that particular container.


In a container you've 2 objects and this container is also used on other sheets

1st object=LB100

2nd object=LB101 (which you'd like to hide)

Now create a new chart or list box which will have a different object number maybe LB102, remove the LB101 and add it to y LB102 to your container which has a condition.

In you sheet where you like to hide this object, give a condition in layout tab if(dimension=...,1,0)

In this way it won't affect other objects which are linked to each other and it will always hide but show up only if condition is satisfied.

Also hiding the labels can also be done.

I find this as an alternate fix, try it and it might work for you.
