Conditional Panel

conditionalPanel(condition, ...)


condition A JavaScript expression that will be evaluated repeatedly to determine whether the panel should be displayed.
... Elements to include in the panel.

Conditional Panel


Creates a panel that is visible or not, depending on the value of a JavaScript expression. The JS expression is evaluated once at startup and whenever Shiny detects a relevant change in input/output.


In the JS expression, you can refer to input and output JavaScript objects that contain the current values of input and output. For example, if you have an input with an id of foo, then you can use to read its value. (Be sure not to modify the input/output objects, as this may cause unpredictable behavior.)
