Yes, if you reference one object or a single group of objects.  You do this
by using the hide/show commands.  For example, in an (unaffected) button:

on mouseUp
  if the vis of group 1 then
    hide group 1 with visual effect push right
  else show group 1 with visual effect push left
end mouseUp

When executed, group 1 will disappear/reappear using the designated visual
