Control Hide on Empty

The Control Hide on Empty plug-in performs a very simple function: It hides the container it sits on if the input value is blank (text) or zero (numbers). Use this plug-in to hide the graphics items if the user does not enter any value in the connected tab-field. Together with the Autofollow plug-in, the plug-in can be used to make intelligent scenes that hide objects that receive no value from the Viz Trio user and also rearrange those items that have a value or text and are visible. For example when using a lower third scene with a bug and a breaking news bar, the bug and the breaking news bar should not be shown all the time. So instead of having to make several explicit variants simply make one scene and use the plug-in to hide the bug and the breaking news only if the page in Viz Trio have no value in those tab-fields.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Built Ins -> Container plug-ins -> Control
