Novell Identity Manager User Application 3.6.1
If you have 2 linebreaks between fields (for layout reasons), and try to hide the fields dynamically(form.hide("name") function) all fields are hidden, however the linebreaks are not. There is an empty space where the fields were. Received the same results with string-Text and string-HTML fields.
This was found to be a bug within Novell Identity Manager UserApplication 3.6.1 and will be fixed in a future version.
If you are calling form.hide("%some fieldname%); you can call it twice in row on these controls and it will hide everything.
