How can I hide the customer custom attribute if the value is null?

Ultimately I want to show this field on edit if it is not null and I don't want to show this field when we create a new customer

Create a Plugin for Customer Form Block:


<type name="Magento\Customer\Block\Adminhtml\Edit\Form">
        <plugin name="hide_custom_attribute" type="YourVendor\YourModule\Plugin\Adminhtml\Customer\Form" sortOrder="10" disabled="false" />

Create the Plugin Class

namespace YourVendor\YourModule\Plugin\Adminhtml\Customer;

use Magento\Customer\Block\Adminhtml\Edit\Form as CustomerEditForm;

class Form
    public function afterGetFormHtml(CustomerEditForm $subject, $result)
        // Replace 'custom_attribute_code' with your custom attribute's code
        if ($subject->getCustomer()->getCustomAttribute('custom_attribute_code')->getValue() === null) {
            $result = str_replace('<div class="admin__field', '<div style="display:none" class="admin__field', $result);
        return $result;

After that clear cache.

php bin/magento cache:clean
php bin/magento cache:flush
php bin/magento indexer:reindex
