In the expression builder, create an expression that specifies the hide condition. Remember, think about when to hide the element, not when to display it. For example, to display the text message, Jumbo, when a loan amount exceeds $363,000.00, conditionally hide the text element using the following expression:
row["LoanAmount"] < 363000
This expression hides the text message when loan amounts are less than $363,000.00.
