I have modified your code somewhat, see the difference?

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form2 = GUICreate("Form2", 413, 298, 302, 218)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group1", 24, 16, 249, 153)
$Group2 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group2", 72, 64, 169, 89)
;GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("UnHide group 2", 296, 80, 97, 17)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

        Case $Checkbox1
            UNHIDE()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func UNHIDE()
    ;GUISetState($GUI_SHOW, $Group2)
    GUICtrlSetState($Group2, $GUI_SHOW)
EndFunc   ;==>UNHIDE

yes it works thanks.

so how do i hide it again if i uncheck the checkbox? like toggle. (please don't be mad for me asking) this is my 4th day learning Autoit :idea:

edit:

never mind i got it to do what i wanted. here is the solved code:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form2 = GUICreate("Form2", 413, 298, 302, 218)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group1", 24, 16, 249, 153)
$Group2 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group2", 72, 64, 169, 89)
;GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_HIDE)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("UnHide group 2", 296, 80, 97, 17)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_UNCHECKED)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

        Case $Checkbox1
            UNHIDE()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func UNHIDE()
    If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
        ;GUISetState($GUI_SHOW, $Group2)
        GUICtrlSetState($Group2, $GUI_SHOW)
    Else
        GUICtrlSetState($Group2, $GUI_HIDE)
    EndIf ;==>UNHIDE
EndFunc   ;==>UNHIDE

somdcomputerguy i have 2 questions: 1. where can i find the a list of controlIDs, cause i'd like to know how you got 96 in

If GUICtrlGetState($Group2) = 96 Then

2. how do i get controls in group2 to hide as well. eg. if i add a textbox to group2

Here's a new UNHIDE()

Func UNHIDE()
    If GUICtrlGetState($Group2) = 96 Then
        GUICtrlSetState($Group2, $GUI_SHOW)
        ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlGetState($Group2) & @LF)
    Else
        GUICtrlSetState($Group2, $GUI_HIDE)
        ConsoleWrite(GUICtrlGetState($Group2) & @LF)
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>UNHIDE

AFAIK, any controls in a hidden group will be hidden as well. If not, I suppose they could be hidden/shown individually..

here is the code, it does not hide tne control inside the group

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

$Form2 = GUICreate("Form2", 414, 299, 302, 218)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group1", 24, 16, 249, 153)
$Group2 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group2", 56, 64, 169, 89)
$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 72, 104, 121, 21)
;GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)

$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 40, 32, 121, 21)
GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("UnHide group 2", 296, 80, 97, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg

            Exit

        Case $Checkbox1

Tiboi,

You have to hide/show each control individually. If you create the controls in IMMEDIATE succession, you can do it like this: :idea:

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\Form2.kxf
$Form2 = GUICreate("Form2", 414, 299, 302, 218)
$Group1 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group1", 24, 16, 249, 153)
    $Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input1", 40, 32, 121, 21)
$Group2 = GUICtrlCreateGroup("Group2", 56, 64, 169, 89)
    $Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("Input2", 72, 104, 121, 21)
$GroupEnd = GUICtrlCreateGroup("", -99, -99, 1, 1)
; Hide Group2 to start
Group_Display($Group2, $GroupEnd, $GUI_HIDE)

$Checkbox1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("UnHide group 2", 296, 80, 97, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

        Case $Checkbox1
            If GUICtrlRead($Checkbox1) = 1 Then
                Group_Display($Group2, $GroupEnd, $GUI_SHOW)
            Else
                Group_Display($Group2, $GroupEnd, $GUI_HIDE)
            EndIf
    EndSwitch
WEnd


Func Group_Display($iStart, $iEnd, $iState)

    For $i = $iStart To $iEnd
        GUICtrlSetState($i, $iState)
    Next

EndFunc

I hope it is clear what is going on - please ask if not. :)
