Allow user to hide or show specific columns in a view

I'd like to add columns to a view that are invisible at first, but the user can make them visible, by right-clicking a column header and selecting visible columns.

Just an example: in the catalog.nsf database, there is a field DbSize that I'd like to see. In many other applications (e.g. spreadsheets), the user has the possibility to click right in a column header, and the application shows the visibility status of each column.

I know a column can have a Hide-when formula, so I probably could do this some programmatic way, but it would be very nice to have this possibility so that users can change a view in a more intuitive way.

    It's something pretty easy to do with a Profile document.
    Personally, I don't think it worth a specific implementation.

    Action formula :

    list:= @Explode(@Environment("TestViewColumns"); "~");

    list:= @Prompt([OkCancelListMult]; "Check"; "Select"; list; "Form":"Other":"Tumting");

    @SetEnvironment("TestViewColumns"; @Implode(list; "~"));


    Hide-when formula form the Form-column:

    !(@Explode(@Environment("TestViewColumns"); "~")="Form")

    Sadly, there's no command to refresh or reload the UI-part of the view, nor is there is a method NotesUIView.RefreshHideFormulas(), so the last line in the Action formula is to no avail.
