I have control or field in my InfoPath form which I need to hide it when I view the item (view form) and show when I Edit an item (Edit form) in SharePoint 2013. Is there any way I can achieve this? I believe it is doable between new form and view form. Please help me out?

On the Page Design tab, create one Edit form and one View form

Let the Edit form be the default form.

Then click File > Form Options > Web Browser. In the Display View drop-down select the View form.

When the form is opened for viewing, the "View" page will be used. When opened for Editing, the default "Edit" page will be used.
