We are using "Column Formatting" option on SP document library for particular column. When it folder, then that option need to hide, if it file or document inside the folder, then option need to visible. Below json code i am trying but its is hiding option for both file and folder. Can anyone suggest us with correct code line.





  "$schema": "",
  "elmType": "button",
  "customRowAction": {
    "action": "executeFlow",
    "actionParams": "{\"id\": \"\"}"
  "attributes": {
    "class": "ms-fontColor-themePrimary ms-fontColor-themeDarker--hover"
  "style": {
    "border": "none",
    "cursor": "pointer",
    "background-color": "#D5D5D5",
    "color": "#000",
    "padding": "4px 4px 4px 10px",
    "border-radius": "5px",

@Murali_Kurva use the following:

"visibility": "=if(((indexOf([$ContentTypeId],'0x0120')) == 0),'hidden', 'visible')"



@Murali_Kurva You have to use the [$ContentType] instead of [$ItemType].


Also, you will have to show/include the SharePoint default content type column in the document library view.


OR you can try this: 


"visibility": "=if([$File_x0020_Type] == '', 'hidden', 'visible')"
