I am using QGIS 3.4

I would like to hide all points that end with "5". For example, I would like to hide: 55, 65, 75, 85 and any point ending in "5".

What method can be use to make this possible?



Another way, using the same method as presented above by Joseph, with a slightly shorter code:

if(LABEL % 10 = 5,"","LABEL")    

When the remainder of dividing by 10 is 5 (so 5, 15, 25...) it won't show the point. enter image description here

  • Seems to be partly working. But the map is still displaying "5" intervals. See picture here @Joseph – Sir.Socks Jan 14 at 16:56
  • it's because you have to get rid of the additional "universal" symbol at the bottom - imgur.com/a/MrDLGBD – Pawel Jan 14 at 17:00
  • And add the same code I provided in the "Labels" menu if you don't want the labels to be displayed imgur.com/a/22cbVMr – Pawel Jan 14 at 17:02
  • Ahh Thank you very much regarding the "Universal" symbol. Working perfectly now! @Pawel – Sir.Socks Jan 14 at 17:16

We can use the modulus operator % to calculate the remainder values when dividing by 5. If there is no remainder then it is removed from the display. However, because multiples of 10 can be divided by 5 with no remainder, we will have to exclude this by adding some logic to the expression:

if("LABEL" % 5 = 0 AND NOT "LABEL" % 10 = 0, "LABEL" % 5 AND NOT "LABEL" % 10, "LABEL")

Excluding values ending in 5


Right-click the layer, click on "Filter..." and enter the expression LABEL % 10 != 5 into the text field labelled "Provider specific filter expression", then press OK.
