Display an image if a field has data or not

P: n/a
Thanks for your help and reading my note!

I would like to display an image that would let the user know that
more information was stored in a comments field. If the comments
field is empty I don't want to display the image. If/when I get this
working then I will let the user click on the image to open up another
form of the comments field.

Let me know if you have any suggestion please.

If this is on a simple form, you can do something like:

imgName.Visible = Is Not Null([BoundCommentsField])
Then, you need an onClick event to display the comments however you like -
unhide a hidden field or open another form.

Unfortunately, I don't know of a way to do this on a continuous form. It
seems that the image isn't associated with the line item of the detail.
It's all or nothing, based on the first line item. Instead, I've had to use
a checkbox noting the presence of more info and a button to pop a form with
that info.

If there's a solution to the line item, please share. I'd be interested.
Thanks

Thanks for the input!

Yea that is pretty much what I have figured out.

Is there any other way to have any visual notification for the user to
click on it?
