jasperreport ireport textfield expression

Hello I wondered if it was possible to use expressions like hiding a Static Textfield when another textfield has a null value.
I have tried to accomplish this using Ireport print on expression but with no result.
The corresponding tag in Jasperreports is <printWhenExpression> but I have not seen any examples on sourceforge

Does anybody have an example or know if this is possible ?

Thanks for any input !

Great I have just found out how so here it is :
new Boolean($F{FIELDNAME}!=null)
If the mentionned field is null then the static field will not be printed
