    Is it possible to keep an InDesign text box transparent unless it has content in it?

      I'm wondering if there is some way to keep a text box transparent unless content is placed in it. For instance, if a master were to include a text box that assumes a black background when filled with text, but remain transparent if there isn't any content. (I'm pulling in data from a CSV file, and I'm trying to come up with a creative way to get around the lack of conditional formatting in InDesign.)
