CRF build - show/hiding tables

Can a table be hidden/shown (depending on a previous questions' answer) using the simple conditional display message instead of having to create a rule?
In the past I found no answers regarding this. Any news on this?

    No, a table belongs to grid. To show and hide grid, you would need to write rule.

    In Clincapture I was sent an 'instruction' to put in the CRF and it allows me to hide a table unless 'yes' is selected. it doens't work in OpenClinica. Has nobody managed to find a way to hide a table that will only appear if a specific answer is chosen, without this being done by a rule????

    Yes it works with the simple SHOW or HIDE option at the very right of the Excel sheet.

    from what I understand, you can set the table to 'HIDE' but only by creating a rule, will it 'show' according to the rule. i want to have this table hidden and have a Yes No question and if the answer is 'yes' then the table will appear without having to create a rule.
    Has ANYONE found a way around of doing this?

    What type of a table are you talking about. The rule to show or hide for a GRID is very simple and only needs to be created once. I do not see your problem!?
