How to hide unused subscreen areas


I have a main screen, see below picture that has 7 subscreen areas.  Based on the selections in 'grey box', I want to display only those subscreens that are relevant to the selections (Anti Block and Anti Oxidant) shown below.

In the scenario below, only 2 options of a possible 6 were chosen.  I want to dynamically assign only those subscreen areas of the main screen based on those selections and HIDE the non-used subscreen areas.

The 'additional information' subscreen needs to be the last subscreen of the selections - as shown below.

Is this possible?

Hi Archer,

I was able to figure it out after all.

I created a new (blank) screen.  No fields and no flow logic.

If I send this blank screen to a screen area, SAP does not show the screen area.  So, it gives me what I'm looking for.

In my scenario above, If the user selects only 2/6 entries, then I pass the relative screens to screen are 1 and screen area 2 as well as the 'additional information' to screen area 3 and then pass the same (Blank) screen to screen areas 4 - 7, then I do not get empty screen areas on my main screen.

Below, is the result.  I have a test program with 2 subscreen areas. The 'Test' button is after the sub-screen area 2.  I passed the blank screen to sub-screen area 2 and this SAP is seemingly tricked and the sub-screen-area2 is invisible. Only the screen that is sent to sub-screen area 1 is visible and achieves my intended purpose.

Thanks for your reply.
