This method is called by the Agentry Client immediately after the Hidden Rule is evaluated for the External Field - ActiveX Control field. This rule returns a Boolean value indicating whether or not the field should be displayed or hidden on the screen. The state parameter to this method indicates whether or not the field is shown.

Note that the Hidden Rule evaluated by the Agentry Client returns true when the field should be hidden, and false when it should be displayed. The value passed to the AgentryShow method is the inverse of the rule’s return, meaning a state parameter value of true indicates the field is displayed, and false indicates it is hidden on the Client.


  • state - This parameter indicates whether the field is shown on the client screen. true indicates the field is currently displayed, false indicates it has been hidden.
