You have to add the canvas name you want to show or hide

Show_View('Canvas1');
Hide_View('Canvas2');

This is what Online Help System says about SHOW_VIEW; did you read it all?

for you both

of course I tried what you said .... but that didn't work

I want simple .fmb explain to me how to use

Show_View('Canvas1');

or

Hide_View('Canvas2');

because I made many times this built-in and it did't work , just go_block working with me .... but what about if I want to show canvas haven't block , just have some words ..... how can I show it ????

Hi,

This is my first post here. Razz

You can't show a canvas using show_view if it does not contain any block item and if it contains a block item then either go_block or go_item completes the job of show_view.

But SHOW_VIEW is required to show the stack canvas on a content canvas in a same window.

@Rumman,

Very good first post.

@Hany,

When you do a 'go_item' or 'go_block' to an item that is displayed on another canvas go do not need to have a 'show_canvas' command.
