Hey Calvin,
Try this: set the visible of object "ObjectName" to true/false
As in...

set the visible of button "YourButton" to true
set the visible of field "MyField" to true
set the visible of button "YourButton" to false
set the visible of field "MyField" to false

..where button/field can be any object selected on your card

Best regards,
David C.
