There's no built-in functionality that does this, but you might want to try taking a look at:

Thanks David!

Bahaviour plugin is not what I need. Yes, I can hide/visible custom field, but only on depending some permissions or compare users in role/groups. I don't know how to set exactly option value in multi checkbox custom field that hide/visible field.

Another above solution, we have a script:

<script type="text/javascript">
function toggleXXXXSelect() {
if (checkbox.checked)

Unknown macro:

Unknown macro: { toggleXXXXSelect.style.display = ''; }


Unknown macro:

Unknown macro: { toggleXXXXSelect.style.display='none'; }

checkbox = document.getElementById('customfield_10111_1');
toggleXXXXSelect = document.getElementById('customfield_10400FieldArea');

// Hide the target field by default
toggleXXXXSelect.style.display = 'none';


unfortunately, i'm not strong in javascript, could you tell me please, what is toggleXXXXSelect(). Is it real name function or not? So, could you correct this script?
