Ribbon Workbench Hide/Show Buttons on Boolean Fields

  • 1.  Ribbon Workbench Hide/Show Buttons on Boolean Fields

    I couldn't easily find an answer to this question, so after some experimenting, I thought it would be appropriate to share what I've found should anyone follow after me.

    The use case was to show/hide buttons on a ribbon based upon a boolean field value.  Since you can represent a boolean field value with 1/0, yes/no, and true/false it wasn't immediately obvious to me which one the Ribbon Workbench would take as an input.  Turns out the Ribbon Workbench only recognizes the values of true/false when you're working with Display/Enable rules.  Hopefully that helps someone else down the road.

    Hi Jonathan,
    That is correct. Ribbon Workbench uses true/false for display/enable rules. Please ensure that the file in which the JavaScript function is written is part of the library of the form.
