When operating on multiple objects like you are doing, it's usually
best to group the fields, then hide/show the group! Then you don't have
to loop through all of them.
BTW using "hide field x" and "show field x" is a good shortcut for "set
the visible of field x"
Maybe you should show the card with a dissolve? I haven't used the
transition effects much myself.
